Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-- If this project book doesn't intimidate readers by its rather diffuse focus, it could be useful. In addition to recipes, it includes scientific and consumer information, experiments, stories, holiday facts, etc., and is aimed at children, parents, and teachers. It is confusing, however. For example, ``A Cake-for-Every-Occasion Design Project'' contains recipes for cake and frosting and more than five variations. Thus, to make ``A Winter Snowbaby Cake,'' one must first refer to the basic cake recipe eight pages earlier. Any recipe will do, it says, but ``For ideas, look at the make-your-own cake mix project in the `Food Factory' section.'' After referring to the table of contents and leafing through the section, readers will find a recipe for ``21 cups of your own mix, enough for six large cakes.'' By this time would-be bakers will be laughing, crying, or frustrated, and will simply give up. The good ideas and information may inspire some creative cooks, but there are too many disparate bits arranged in a too confusing format for most readers. --Carolyn Jenks, Oyster River Elem .
