Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Selected as one of the Best Children's Books of the Year, 2002 by the Bank Street College of Education, this title was reissued as part of the "Penguin Young readers" series. Three cooks—Suzanne, Max and Jake—are preparing to make a pizza. First they measure out the flour to prepare the dough, but it does need to set before they shape, toss and flip it into the perfect round shape. The sauce, alas, is poured from a can, but with the help of an adult, they cut peppers, scallions and broccoli and grate cheese to place on top of the sauce. Then it is all popped into the oven where it bakes and the kids clean up the kitchen and set the table for this anticipated yummy meal. Most kids love pizza and will urge caregivers to try out the recipe given on the last page. Take-out is fine, but what could be more fun than making a pizza from scratch on a cold fall or wintry day. The multicultural cast stresses cooperation and makes food preparation look like great fun. The opening page contains a note to parents and educators about the series and tips for making best use of the book. It has been identified as Level 2, Guided reading "H" which is suited for progressing readers who can handle simple dialogue, and more in-depth plots. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Three exuberant children make pizza from scratch (with a little help from an adult) and enjoy eating it together. Full-page color layouts illustrate the multiethnic cooking crew as they mix and knead the dough, add sauce and toppings, and bake it. The rhyming text is right on target for the grade level. The short sentences and easy text, combined with the lively illustrations, clearly convey the process. A recipe is included for any readers inspired to try it themselves. An excellent addition to easy-reader shelves.-Lisa Smith, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
