Children's Literature - Gwynne SpencerPart of the "Checkerboard How-To Library," this book includes eight snack recipes: Dilly and Chilly Dips for Veggies, Nachos with Pico de Gallo, No-Bake Energy Bars, Super Cereal Snack Mix, Berry Frozen Fruit Pops, Over-the-Top-Apple Crisp, Chocolate-Dipper Treats, and Campfire-Free S'Mores. The section titled "What Makes Cooking So Cool" introduces the recipes, tells readers how the book works, and offers encouragement for new chefs. The section called "Basics" colorfully teaches new cooks to ask permission, to be prepared, be smart, be safe in the kitchen, and to be clean and neat. It also teaches new cooks how to measure and includes symbols used in the book. The section called "Tool Box" provides photographs of all the implements and appliances used in the recipes, thus preventing misunderstandings a la Amelia Bedelia. The "Cool Cooking Terms" section photographically introduces vocabulary used in the recipes: peel, chop, mince, spread, grate, core, slice, fold, mix, grease. The "Coolest Ingredients" section has clear photos of all the ingredients mentioned in the recipes. Also included is a sidebar called "Allergy Alert" because nuts are included in some recipes. These features make this book (and the series) ideal for developmentally challenged adults as well as for kids in the kitchen. The book includes an index and a glossary.
