Children's Literature
Cookies are wonderful to eat, and can be fun to make, too. It is quite easy using this kid-friendly cookbook. The book is divided into sections called "Holidays," "For Special People," "Seasons," and "Just for Fun." Before the actual making of the cookies, a general introduction is presented covering such topics as measuring ingredients, cutting out the dough, baking, storing, and melting chocolate and butter. Each recipe starts off with an illustration of the finished product and a list of ingredients needed, utilizing standard American measurements as well as metric. The directions are enumerated and clearly written. At the end of the majority of the recipes are suggestions for modifications or substitutions or gift-wrap ideas—a unique component of this cookbook compared to others currently on the market. Attractive and accurate illustrations demonstrate instructions that may be unfamiliar to children, such as: making the best use of your dough by alternating the position of the cookie cutter, how to fold the dough in certain directions and how to cover a log of dough in sugar by rolling it entirely on a plate of sugar. This book would be useful in a preschool or kindergarten setting or would make a delightful gift and is highly recommended. 2004, Kids Can Press, Ages 8 up.

Gr 3-8-Beginning with a well-organized contents page listing 32 recipes under four headings-"Holidays," "For Special People," "Seasons," and "Just for Fun"-this book is sure to please bakers. The step-by-step instructions (three to six per recipe) are easy to follow, and the ingredients/tools listed are readily available or easily obtainable. Suggestions for variations and packaging are offered. Easter egg nests, pinwheels, crazy daisies, magic cookie wands, and honeybees, among other treats, are especially appealing for their creative design, color, and sparkle effects. Each recipe is accompanied by precise, softly colored illustrations. This well-designed title will encourage an interest in baking and is a fine addition along with Sarah A. Williamson's Bake the Best-Ever Cookies (Ideals, 200l) and Mary Hill's Let's Make Cookies (Scholastic, 2002).-Augusta R.
