Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-5-- The Boxcar children have been around since 1942, and young readers still love them. The recipes in this attractive book are related to incidents in the series: "Henry cut one of the loaves of bread into four pieces with his knife, and the children began to eat" introduces a recipe for Baker's Bread in a Bag. Safety rules stressing adult supervision and other general guidelines are clearly covered at the beginning of the book. Then comes the fairly standard variety of recipes from beverages to desserts, with a chapter on campfire cooking as well. All feature ingredients most children will like. There isn't a trace of tofu anywhere; the overall tone is homespun and down-to-earth. Illustrations from the original editions are used throughout, as is a red-and-white checkerboard motif, adding a note of old-fashioned charm. For the most part, directions are clear and easy to follow. Occasionally, though, readers are not warned about potentially tricky steps (as in Baker's Bread in a Bag, which calls for yeast and "1 cup very warm water," without advising the use of a thermometer for the water). Children young enough to enjoy the series will probably need adult help with most of the recipes. This is not so beautifully designed or naturally integrated as Barbara Walker's The Little House Cookbook (HarperCollins, 1979), but libraries in which the series is popular will want to add it. --Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library,

I had a reading unit on The Boxcar Children #1. We used many of the receipes in class, the bread in the bag was very successful. I had the children bring as many ingredients as possible. We did as much as possible in class. The book was very well laid out. The pictures that matched the book were great. Sometimes I would have a child take home one of the copies and try a receipe at home, with permission of course. Keep up the good work on publishing good books.

A delightful addition for fans of the Boxcar Children books and cooking. My 8-yr-old granddaughter - devotee of Rachel Ray and avid reader - loves it, as do I.
My only criticism is that the book is standard paper-back construction, and I would have preferred a sturdier paper and binding - more like a traditional cookbook. Otherwise, it is very nicely done.

We love the Boxcar children series and I was super excited to see there was a cookbook too! We actually got our kids to try some "different" foods because the Boxcar children ate it. Nice simple recipes that tie in with the stories and allow kids to easily help cook. For me this book was a must have!
