I still remember making Stone Soup after reading the book in elementary school, and it's just a great way to engage kids in reading and create memories. A school teacher once told my mom that reading facilitates learning simply by helping kids understand their reality: when they see an object or a place, they think, oh, I've read about one of these! Cooking these recipes does this immediately: I just read about this, and now I'm experiencing it!
Most of these books didn't come with their own recipes, so just get creative and type in the recipe to a Google browser (hint: sometimes adding the word "best" before your search terms will have better chances of yielding a recipe your kids will eat).
If you need some suggestions to get you started:
The Story of Little Babaji (pancakes in melted butter)
Stone Soup (stew with a couple of rocks on the bottom)
Surprise Soup (vegetable soup with a pinch of sugar thrown in; you'll want to talk with your kids about whether or not a brother should say some of the things this older brother says to the younger one)
An Apple Pie for Dinner (uh, apple pie)
The Boxcar Children (recipes from The Boxcar Children Cookbook)
Little House on the Prairie (recipes from The Little House Cookbook)
