Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-- Comparing this New Junior Cook Book with the 1972 edition gives an interesting portrayal of our country's changes in eating habits, tastes, and nutritional awareness. There are fewer prepared mixes used, and more pure food; there is no section on table setting or table manners; there are more raw fruits and vegetables, and far fewer gooey desserts. Microwave instructions are given, with many more inviting colored photographs; there is more awareness of what young people like to eat, while keeping nutrition in mind. The book offers a good, clear, attractive collection of American recipes, including Americanized Mexican and Italian dishes. Better Homes and Gardens Step-by-Step Kids' Cookbook (Meredith, 1984) contains similar, but not identical, recipes; its colored photographs are not always as large or as attractive as in this book; and it does not include microwave instructions. Otherwise they could be seen as companion volumes, both useful to beginning cooks in search of good, basic, and interesting recipes. --Carolyn Jenks, Oyster River Elementary School, Durham, NH

    Great for kids!

    My grandson loves to make foods for himself and his siblings. This cookbook gives him a chance to do something more independent in the kitchen as well as some experience following specific directions.
