Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Angela Wilkes' mouth-watering, photo-illustrated Children's Quick and Easy Cook Book contains multicultural recipes from "super-fast snacks" to "treats and sweets" for cooks of all ages. Her top-notch selections include salade Nioise, falafel, tabbouleh, tacos, and (now one of our favorites) Thai kebabs and satay sauce.

Gr 4-6This beautiful cookbook, full of eye-catching photographs, is a companion piece to The Children's Step-by-Step Cook Book (DK, 1994). The recipes are categorized by snacks, speedy meals, desserts, and treats and sweets, with no repeats from the first book, but similar in type. However, the collection is overpowered with sweets, and the categories are not precise; instead, they overlap a great deal. Cooks' tools are listed, not pictured as they are in Step; ingredients are pictured in a smaller, boxed area. The method steps are similarly numbered, pictured, and described, and the final dish is pictured and labeled in both books. Unlike Step, Quick gives preparation time; it is a range of 7-40 minutes, the latter of which some young cooks would not agree is quick. The recipes in both books are inviting and are composed of real ingredients rather than mixes. The table of contents contains full-color photographs as well as descriptions, so that readers can know just what to expect from "Crunchy Crostini," "Fishcake Flounders," "Tiramisu," or "Flapjacks." Libraries that can afford them should have both titles. Bon appetit!Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME

I bought this for two grandsons....ages 6 and 9. They continually refer to the book for something they can prepare without help. They are learning basic cooking info while having fun.
The recipes catch their attention and the illustrations and text are easy for them to follow....
I researched several children's cookbooks before selecting this one and feel that it was an excellent choice.
