Last week I was very excited to receive a copy of a new bento book: Happy Bento! by Anna Adden.
Anna writes the bento blog Becoming a Bentoholic and we have been friendly for a few years now. In fact, I can’t really pretend to be unbiased about Anna’s book because I happily wrote an endorsement for it.
Happy Bento is a compact little book that’s packed with fun bento lunches. The book covers lots of bento basics and it showcases 50 different packed lunches along with instructions for each of them.
There are several ideas I’m looking forward to trying in my boys’ lunches:
I love this idea to put a cookie cutter right into the box and use that as a divider! I have plenty of cutters I could use this way.
My kids were quite taken with this piranha plant from the Super Mario Bros lunch. Cute, right?
And this Pac Man lunch offers even more video game fun! (I suspect I might like it even more than they do though!)
There are many more fun themes included too — all the major holidays and some you may not have heard of. Pi Day? Talk Like a Pirate Day? Both covered!
Happy Bento! is available for purchase on Amazon and in fine bookstores everywhere.
Giveaway! Woo hoo!
