Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Review, Booklist, October 1, 2010:
"...Katzen offers another gold-standard collection of vegetarian, kid-friendly recipes in an artistic, innovative format."
Publishers Weekly
From the author of Moosewood Cookbook comes the paper-over-board Salad People and More Real Recipes: A New Cookbook for Preschoolers and Up by Mollie Katzen, geared towards youngest food-lovers and vegetarians. All recipes unfold nearly wordlessly in step-by-step panel illustrations against neon-bright backgrounds. For "Tiny Tacos," seven panels unfold as "1. Put chips on plate/ 2. Add beans." Yet, by box #7, the recipe is complete: "Eat!" Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Katzen excels again as the preschool set's and their parents' favorite cooking guru. Practical recipes written for adults and drawn for children present a delightful activity for any time of the day or year. It is never too early to teach the importance of nutrition and food presentation. As the subtitle suggests, this is for anyone beyond the teething stage and can easily be incorporated into a classroom setting from nursery school and beyond. Twenty recipes are presented--first in text version for caregivers, then pictorially for even the youngest cooks--to show progression, if nothing else. Each step is shown chronologically with minimal text. Each recipe is preceded by the "Critics Rave," featuring accolades from real preschoolers during the assembling process and tasting. Helpful hints are sprinkled throughout the recipes, such as suggesting it is easier for children to push blender buttons with their thumbs; to properly flour their hands, instruct them to "wash their hands" with flour--great tips for everyone, not just the kids. This is one of those books that has the potential to create memories that can be passed through the generations, yet can be cozy enough just for the two of you. 2005, Tricycle Press, Ages 4 to 8.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-In this charming offering, Katzen follows the format and emphases of Pretend Soup and Other Real Recipes (Tricycle, 1994) to present 20 new kid-tested concoctions. Not a hot dog, tub of frosting, or package of Kool-Aid is to be found among these dishes; this is real food, the nutritious and delicious kind-low fat, low sugar, and meatless. The first recipe encourages kids to be creative and make their own miniature "Salad People" out of cheese, fruit, vegetables, and pasta. "Tiny Tacos" are tortilla chip sandwiches of refried beans, guacamole, salsa, and grated cheese. "Focaccia" starts with store-bought pizza dough that is painted with olive oil, sprinkled with rosemary, and baked. "Chewy Energy Circles" are a nutritious alternative to expensive power bars. Each tasty treat is presented in an easy-to-use, three-part format. First, an introductory section for grown-ups describes the end product and outlines tips to help children achieve success. Next, ingredients and directions are provided. Finally, a colorful spread combines simple language with clear illustrations to clarify each step. Safety tips and an essay discussing the benefits of this activity for children are included. Throughout, the writing is clear and encouraging, empowering novice chefs to discover new skills and tastes as they explore this rewarding endeavor.
