Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 3-6

The photos alone make this attractive cookbook worth the price of admission: glistening grilled peaches, stacked mini fish cakes flecked with parsley, and noodles tangled around chopsticks. The design is eye-catching, with a sweet cursive font that girly girls will love and photos illustrating, step by step, how to complete each dish. There is even a section focusing on crafts, which includes instructions for invitations, place settings, and folded napkins. Safety warnings are included throughout. However, once the recipes are actually made, the problems arise. First, the dishes are for a somewhat sophisticated palate-average eaters aren't likely to go for jambalaya or green salad with broccoli, peas, and spinach. Additionally, some of the recipes can be very bland or odd-tasting. To its credit, the recipes cover a wide range of abilities, from the easy and versatile nachos to the more complex pizza squares (the homemade crust calls for yeast and kneading). Most of these dishes will appeal to adventurous eaters and their foodie parents. There isn't a lot of cultural diversity here, but the recipes are wrapped in such a pretty package that the book is likely to circulate based on looks alone.-Laura Lutz, Queens Borough Public Library, NY

What a wonderful book....I bought it on the recommendation of a friend who bought it for her granddaugher - who loved it. My granddaughter loves it also and has already made several of the recipes. The book is so attractive and shows presentations of meals which are important. Also crafts are included - folding napkins, decorations, etc...showing that cooking can be fun and rewarding. It was a add-on for her 13th birthday and well worth it.

The perfect birthday gift for my niece's 9 yr. old daughter.She read every recipe  immediately and chose one  to make for her up coming birthday gathering!!

I bought this for our 6 year old great-niece this Christmas. My review is my opinion only because she has not opened it yet. If she and her mother have a different opinion, I will return and edit my review later. The cookbook has easy to understand recipes, a list of tools needed for each recipe, lots of colorful photos and illustrations. I'm sure this cookbook will require her mom's help, but that's what it's all about anyway. I would recommend this cookbook to others.

Excellent book for young cooks. Diverse and interesting recipes with clear, step-by-step instructions and gorgeous pictures to show the end result. My 11 year old great niece was thrilled to receive this gift.

I purchased this cookbook for my 10 year old aspiring chef. My daughter immediately started a list of ingredients for all the recipes she wanted to try. A few of the recipes were a little complex for her but there are great colored phots and detailed instructions. During Christmas break she made several items for the family with very little adult assistance. A really great gift!
