What a delightful introductory cookbook for kids to help them learn the varied cuisines of the World. In this step-by-step, beautifully pictured book, kids will have the opportunity to explore delightful taste sensations without difficulty. I see this as an excellent tool for parents to introduce their children to cooking in general. The book has some basic rules of the kitchen and safety such as neat, clean, smart, safe, organization, and prep work. There are also explanations and illustrations of the tools you use in cooking and basic cooking terms. And then, we venture into the World of ethnic and cultural cooking. We find that we are not so different in our tastes after all. Various cultures utilize spices in different ways to achieve the same goal: nutritious, tasty food. This is a book that will surely see lots of action in the kitchen. I can see Mom sneaking it out a bit to try something different, too.
