Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Spicy cookies, speedy pizzas and silly sundaes are only a few of the recipes for children in this nifty introductory cookbook. Magnificent photographs throughout this oversized book chronicle each recipe from start to yummy finish. A visual introduction shows how to ``cook by pictures,'' lists cook's rules, displays cooking tools and explains a symbol that means ``ask an adult for help.'' Each double-page spread shows ingredients in heaps and mounds with a diagram of required utensils, and smaller sets of photos show a pair of young hands going through each step. Snazzy decorating ideas transform an ice-cream sundae into a bumblebee and a roll into a snail or a teddy bear. Quiche, potato boats and pizza complement the desserts (pastry, fruit tarts, even chocolate truffles) on the ``menu.'' Children will be hard-pressed to say whether making or eating the recipes is more fun. Ages 7-up. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-- This excellently crafted, large-format cookbook features clear pictures showing how to make cookies, breads, pizzas, desserts, and snacks. Emphasis is placed on the visual appeal of the final product, with lots of life-size examples shown. The table of contents is illustrated, as is the list of tools needed. Each recipe also includes pictures of the required tools and ingredients with simple directions and clear step-by-step, how-to photographs. There is an erratum--inclusion of baking powder is left out of one step--a minor error as the baking power is shown. There are no directions on how to measure the ingredients--everything is shown premeasured. The 11 basic recipes will allow young cooks to create a wide variety of appealing meals for friends and family. Each recipe includes a sentence at the end of the introduction telling young cooks that an adult must be nearby to supervise the creation of the food. Few cookbooks for children are this complete, clear, and well done. --Carole B. Kirkpatrick, Terminal Park Elementary School, Auburn, WA

    Creative Food for kids to create!

    I'm using this book with my preschool aged children-- who can't read the directions, obviously, but the pictures are wonderful and I'm guiding them as we work together anyway. The ideas and presentation of foods are absolutely inspirational!
