Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leigh Geiger
This is one of the cookbooks in the "Kids Dish" series which presents appealing recipes in terms that young children can understand. It would be a useful educational tool for both home and school. This cookbook helps develop nutrition awareness with a graphic of the USDA's "My Pyramid" on the first page. Each recipe then refers to the pyramid by listing the food groups included in the dish. Introductory notes to both kids and adults ensure that they are ready to follow these basic recipes. A "Tips and Glossary" section, designed specifically for the recipes in this book, ensures that young children are familiar with all of the terms, temperatures, measures and tools they will need. The recipes are color-indexed by complexity from simple Watermelon Agua Fresca which can be made in three steps with a few tools, to Tres Leche Cake which requires ten ingredients, a dozen tools, makes twenty-four servings, and is ready to eat in two hours. Each recipe includes clearly defined steps with colorful, accurate illustrations of each direction. Ingredients and tools are clearly listed and children are encouraged to completely review the recipe and have all the necessary equipment ready before beginning. Directions intended for adults are clearly labeled. Simple English translations are offered for the Spanish-named dishes such as Salsa Verde (green sauce) and Burritos (little donkey). Additional tips offer alternate ingredients and extra nutritional information. The index allows searching by recipe name, ingredients, tools, and cooking time. The only issue some children may experience with this book is the choice of recipes. Many use raw onion, cumin, or chili powder which young children may havetrouble digesting. A link to the "Fact Hound" website for this book leads to more information about nutrition and family recipes for Mexican dishes. Reviewer: Leigh Geiger, Ph.D.
