Gr 4 Up-These delightful cookbooks are a feast for the eye and the palate. Each offers 15 easy recipes representative of the featured cuisine, ranging from appetizers to main dishes, soups, side dishes, and desserts. The emphasis is on fun and the large, colorful photographs that are liberally splashed across each spread depict children enthusiastically engaged in preparing delectable dishes. Each volume includes a description of a festival, some background on the observance, and a special food associated with it. The recipes are clearly written and well illustrated. Kitchen safety is emphasized in the "Tips & Tricks" sidebars, and each book includes a disclaimer that while the recipes have been tested and declared safe for youngsters to prepare, adult supervision is strongly recommended. A glossary defines both cooking terms and words related to the cuisine.-Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
