Overview

Now kids can do more than just eat cookies with the help of this book in the Kids Can Do It series. They can learn how to bake and build holiday decorations and wreaths, a garden of cookie flowers and candleholders — all from cookie dough. It's fun and easy, and the best part is you can eat your mistakes! Bake It and Build It includes delicious cookie dough recipes kids can taste-test as they learn how to cut out shapes, "glue" them together and decorate their cookie creations. There are also patterns for an impressive cookie castle and for a Thanksgiving turkey the whole family can gobble up! Clear instructions and step-by-step illustrations make each project easy for kids to build on their own.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Catherine Campbell Wright
Aspiring young chefs will find these beautiful baking projects a fun challenge. Gift boxes, flower wreaths, candleholders, gardens, and more can all be created from cookie recipes! The final products are dazzling as presented in the book, but most children will probably not be able to duplicate their perfection without an experienced adult along to supervise. The directions and recipes are complete and clear, and the illustrations provide adequate guidance each step of the way. Most of the recipes seem to require a substantial time commitment and a certain amount of manual dexterity. However, the creations are simply gorgeous, and those who make the effort will surely be rewarded.
Booklist
The easy-to-follow, step-by-step directions will help entice children to try the projects ? Bright, colorful illustrations present the process, and photographs depict the glorious finished product.
