Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Gwynne Spencer
Part of the "Kids Dish" cookbook series. Each book in this series of large hardcover books includes notes to kids and parents from the author which emphasize that kids should always have a grownup in the kitchen when they cook, a page of special tips on things like cracking eggs, measuring wet ingredients, measuring dry ingredients, a glossary, a conversion chart for metric and temperature (not sure why this is in such an elementary cookbook), and a page of kitchen tools illustrated with drawings. Also a full page about the new food pyramid which appears in miniature on every recipe as well. Recipes are grouped into Easy, Intermediate, and Advanced based on the skills needed, time required, number of ingredients and tools needed. Whenever an action like cutting with a knife or baking in the oven (even a microwave) is mentioned, there is the admonition to have an adult do it. Each full-page recipe includes an ingredients list, a tools list, the number of servings, prep time required, and an illustration of a child eating the finished product. Steps for each recipe are in illustration panels, making the visual cueing excellent. An index includes recipe names and ingredients. Recipes in this book include "Apple Party Punch," "Lemonade Stand," "Double Feature Popcorn," "Snowy Day Hot Chocolate" (which has an egg in it!), "Indoor S'mores," "Ice-cream Soda Social," "Campout Banana Boats," "Cookie Decorating Party," "Sleepover Chocolate Fondue," "Sleepy Day Chicken Noodle Soup," "Bake Sale Brownies," "Holiday Snowflakes" (these are clever cookies cut with scissors like paper snowflakes—great idea!), "Rocky Road Fudge," and "Happy Birthday Cupcakes." Overall, the presentation is forelementary kids. Reviewer: Gwynne Spencer
