From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Parents and kids alike will have a wonderful time in the kitchen with this delightful collection of over 50 kid-friendly recipes. Registered dietician McQuillan and the stars of Sesame Street compile a wide range of dishes, from classics like Chicken Nuggets, Fish Sticks and Macaroni and Cheese to more exotic fare such as African Peanut Butter Soup and Bert's Tutti Frutti Turkey Salad, which gets a boost of flavor from curry powder. Recipes are simple and straightforward, and each has at least one step a child can perform. Parents will like the fact that the book offers plenty of healthy alternatives to junk-food snacks and dishes traditionally high in fat; lowfat yogurt, for example, substitutes for mayonnaise in tartar sauce and sour cream in stuffed potatoes. Kids will also enjoy learning how favorites like peanut butter and applesauce are made. Packed with jokes, tips and food trivia from Grover, the Count, Big Bird and others, this title lives up to its pedigree, making both learning and cooking fun for kids.

My daughter and I found this book at our local grocery store and we fell in love with the book. Each recipe includes a really yummy looking photo. Each recipe has a equipment list and shows which steps your child can do, it seems to be at least 2 steps your child can do and the least 1 step.

The book includes 2 pages on introduction on cooking with your child and how it not only creates great food, but great bonding time as well, what to do before you begin, getting ready to cook and a note about nutrition, and children's safety. Some pages have extra tips, information like on page 93" Big Bird's Granny Bird told him that sesame seeds grow in little pods, or seed cases, on flowering plants that can grow very tall. When the seeds are ready to come out of their pod, the pod burst open with a "pop"! A lot of sesame seeds are grown in the countries of India and China": or objects to count with Count von Count and twiddlebugs to find though out the book. After all of the recipe there are more cool snacks, time spent together and things to do to involve your children with decorating the table, help with the theme of the meal and things to talk about during dinner. And it also has 2 pages on Funny Food Faces to create from the book by the same name.

According to my four-year-old son, there are four food groups: 1. Bananas, 2. French Fries, 3. Cheerios, and 4. Chocolate Milk. We have tried the "just offer healthy food and eventually they will cave and eat it" approach, but believe me, the kid can go for days without eating. Weeks even. He will hold out for a french fry for as long as it takes!

I've really tried to bump up the nutrition in our household lately, and this cookbook has really been helping. I find that if my son has an active part in helping to get meals on the table, he is a lot more likely to eat them, even if they have "green stuff." I also love it that he is learning where his food comes from and seeing the work that goes into having good things to eat. "C is for Cooking" has made the process a lot more fun for him. He loves choosing what would be fun to cook, and the recipes in the book are for meals and snacks that everyone in the family can enjoy. In particular, we really enjoyed Big Bird's ABC Chicken Noodle Soup, and Cookie Monster's homemade peanut butter was just about the best peanut butter we've ever had!

One thing that is great about this cookbook (besides the fun little "Sesame Street" details, such as Big Bird asking you to find the letters of your name in your ABC soup) is that there are cooking steps designated especially for the kids. My son gets really excited about when it's his turn to help!

I can't recommend this book highly enough for anyone with picky eaters or small kitchen helpers in the house!

If you're looking for some fun recipes that a kid will enjoy eating, this cookbook is fine. If you're looking for recipes your kid can prepare (or help substantially with), I'd skip this book.

This is a perfectly fine cookbook with nice pictures and recipes for things that kids will probably eat, but I don't think it's well-suited for helping a child learn how to cook. My daughter received this for her fourth birthday, along with an apron and some miniature bakeware & utensils. She loves to piddle in the kitchen, but she really couldn't contribute any more than the usual (stirring, adding ingreadients I had prepared & measured) on the recipes we made from this book. We've made spaghetti pie and asian meatballs-- both were delicious, but they pretty much required adult preparation. Kids of an age to enjoy Elmo can't cook & drain pasta or mince water chestnuts.

The book is good for children to look at -- the photographs of foods are large and simple -- and the things we've made are tasty. I would not recommend this if your primary goal is to have recipes a child can prepare. Elmo and Sesame Street appeal to the pre-school crowd but the pre-school crowd isn't quite ready to cook much-- by the time a child is capable of mastering the recipes in this book, they may well have outgrown Elmo.

I thought this book was awesome. I would never think of putting strawberry jelly on an omelet, but my daughter loved it when she won't eat normal scrambled eggs. The recipes are simple, fun, and inventive. Most of the foods I make are steered towards the adult palett, so this book taught me a lot. As an important note also, these recipes are pretty nutritious. Low-fat cheese and milk, low sodium broths, and they try to incorporate fruits, vegetables, protein and fiber. I love it.
