Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
2000 ALA Notable Children's Book

Children's Literature Choice List 2000

Review, School Library Journal:
"The author's intent is that children participate in the cooking process; enjoy their accomplishments; and learn bits of math, science, and something about cooperation along the way. The nourishing recipes are clearly presented in an encouraging tone..."

Review, Curious Parents, June 1, 2010:
"Filled with healthy dishes that appeal to kids."

    Finally, a cookbook for KIDS

    Pages are laid out so kids can be self-directed in cooking. Kids will actually cook, not just cut and dump, like many other kid recipe cookbooks. Kids can easily follow the directions with well laid-out pictures and words. The beginning of each recipe has complete list of ingredients, tools needed, and tips for adults. Also states the prep time and time from start to finish. A wonderful variety of recipes like Macaroni- Not- in- a Box, Apple Salad, and Giant Pancake Puff.
