I have a great many cookbooks and quite a few for my kids. There are only a couple that they use on any regular basis. I think this one will be different. It is beautifully photographed with an excellent layout and is conveniently divided into age or stage sections depending on skill level (and age of course). The recipes in the earlier stages are great for mixing and matching with the more involved later recipes to form a complete meal. There are pages for the grownups at the beginning of each section to explain the various skills being presented and the equipment that will be used, as well as when to help and when to encourage independence in the kitchen. Particular skills are again outlined at the beginning of each recipe. There are also suggestions on how to make the recipes your own if you want to add or omit ingredients. Each recipe has beautiful step by step photographs and simple, clear instructions. I can see my kids wanting to try out at least 90% of the recipes in the book. I already love it after paging through it once, so it's a definite recommend for me. I especially appreciate the foundational skill instruction. How many other kid's cookbooks tell how to make a white sauce, one of the best foundational skills for any roux-sauce based recipe? (And with food allergies, it is a necessary skill for us since my kids can never fall back on a canned sauce/soup shortcut.)

Some of the recipes included are:
Stage 1: (3-5 years) red dip with crunchy veggies; DIY pizzas; cheesy stuffed peppers; crunchy paprika chicken; berry crunch; mini fruit pies.

I have an 8 year old daughter that loves to cook. She has loved Cook School as have I both for the recipes that are easy for her to follow as well as for the terrific food ideas, tips and inspirations it includes. She has read through it several times and enjoys the pictures and little tips she learns on the recipes.

The recipes are written out in simple terms that are easy for her to follow herself. This is not always the case with kid's cookbooks, but she was able to follow the recipes we made very easily all by herself. It even includes important information about food handling, like when you handle chicken to WASH YOUR HANDS and places where you should ask an adult for help. The name of the book is very appropriate as it provides a lot of technique and school like terms with each section and recipe. For instance, it includes a skills section with each recipe--what you will learn like cutting, using the stovetop, crushing garlic, etc...

The book is organized in sections based on the age of your child, so it is something you can use for years starting at a young age and your child can grow into the more advanced recipes which are both more complex to make but also have more sophisticated flavors your older child may be ready for.

There are great tips for things out of regular ingredients you'll have on hand like making rolled sandwiches out of sliced bread rather then getting real lavosh. There are lots of ideas that we have incorporated into her lunch already.

We have modified a few recipes based on her food interests but used this recipe as a base. On the easy minestrone soup recipe, she got very creative and added several other vegetables she likes (chard, carrots) and omitted one she didn't care for.

When my daughters and I had some down time over the holiday break, we decided to tackle a few recipes from cook school. I let each of my girls select their "menu item" as I wanted them to "like" what they were cooking. My 5-year old selected "Ants on a Log" from the 3-5 year old section, and she has enjoyed making it ever since. It's simple enough, that she can remember the ingredients and she also liked the catchy name of the recipe. She attends a Montessori based preschool and really enjoys the "practical life" section of her classroom. I was pleasantly surprised how well she could cut the celery on her own, under my supervision. My 7-year old daughter selected a more complicated recipe which although it was reminiscent of "Macaroni and Cheese" -- it was healthier and a little more sophisticated. Four easy to follow steps, with illustrations was really helpful and she felt like she had really cooked something when we we're done. Of course it's nice there are lots of photos of children demonstrating the steps. I found the variation of recipes to be a nice spin on some standard kid-favorites. I love that it gives my kids an understanding and appreciation for what mom does in the kitchen everyday! They love the food they create!

There are some typos throughout the book and Ella's Raspberry Cake had baking powder in the ingredient list but in the directions did not say to add it. Once the cake was in the oven we noticed the baking powder had not been used. The cake did not rise. Very disappointing that the cake had to be thrown out and a discouraging first baking attempt.
