More About the Author

Since 1921, the Betty Crocker name has symbolized the General Mills continuing tradition of service to consumers. Although Betty was never a real person, her name and identity have become synonymous with helpfulness, trustworthiness and quality.

Betty Crocker has survived the decades by providing consumers with food information and food products that are contemporary without being faddish. The first hardcover cookbook, Betty Crocker's Picture Cookbook was published in 1950 and quickly became a national best seller. Since then, more than 250 Betty Crocker cookbooks have been published.

We got this book for our 7 year old for Christams. I wanted a clearly set out book with basic recipes as he loves to help out in the kitchen and his Dad is a great cook. The book is quite good, and the recipes are simple enough that he can follow them with minimal supervision. They all sound wonderful with wacky names, but I was dissapointed that this book uses a lot of packet mixes and pre prepared foods. It is more like an assembling book than a cook book. I really wanted something that would teach him basic cooking techniques, where as this focuses on the end result not the process. He still enjoys the book though and at least it is fostering his enjoyment of cooking.

You know how it grates when you're exposed to a really really loud car stereo? That's what this book is visually. I am not interested in using a cookbook that 1) hurts my eyes and 2) isn't very original. I mean, don't kids get enough stimulation nowadays without printing a cookbook this garish?

If you're looking to get the kids into the kitchen, save your money for The Everything Kid's Cookbook or Mommy and Me, both fantastic books for that purpose; or for ultra kid-friendly new recipes, Beyond Mac'n'Cheese (by MOPS), or if you're really serious about family cooking, The Cook's Illustrated Family Cookbook, all excellent selections.

For healthy alternatives, get the BH & G's Kid's Favorites Made Healthy--a really excellent book with lots of recipes that are charming and easy to make. Skip this tome, which aside from scarring your retina, is mundane at best.

I found the Betty Crocker cookbook for kids was limited in actual recipes. I had thought of it for my 11yr old granddaughter but when I received it I was very disappointed in fact I returned it because even for my 7 year old grandson it was too basic. The recipes were things they already cooked. Way too much reading and too little recipes. Not a great job from Betty Crocker.

This is a good basic children's cookbook. It is attractivly set up in a way that really appeals to kids. My child has already made dinner and dessert for the whole family the first night we got the book! Some of the recipes don't seem to really appeal to children because of ingredients, but most are really cute and not bad to eat either! I would recommend this book as it is a great, fun, and educational first step to learning how to cook!

This cookbook contains many good and simple recipes for young beginning cooks, using prepared ingredients - but also includes more involved from-scratch recipes for kids with cooking experience. The illustrations and photos are fun, and the book includes input and testing by real kids! They even include party ideas, and a few recipes for craft items. The gooey caramel rolls (made from refrigerated bread stick dough) are amazing!

My 8-year-old daughter & I have tried many recipes from this books and they have been delicious! She once brought the macaroni & cheese to a school party & her classmates ate it all up! The design is really attractive to kids, and the spiral binding makes it so much easier to read the recipes. The reason for only one star is I feel there are not very healthy -- too many recipes with meat and cheese.

I bought this cookbook for all my grandkids, but I had no idea that

it would be received so enthusiastically; they all loved it.

The real 'plus' it has going for it, is the ease at which some of the recipes can be put together. A lot of the recipes were so easy

to make that the kids were thrilled to see their efforts become a

reality in such a short time. Whoever thought up this cookbook did

this with children's short attention span in mind! Thanks.

I bought this book thinking it would be something like the Betty Crocker kids cookbook I had when I was little. I was really disappointed. I wouldn't even call it a cook book. There aren't many true recipes in it. Betty Crocker could have done better.
