Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6-- If this project book doesn't intimidate readers by its rather diffuse focus, it could be useful. In addition to recipes, it includes scientific and consumer information, experiments, stories, holiday facts, etc., and is aimed at children, parents, and teachers. It is confusing, however. For example, "A Cake-for-Every-Occasion Design Project" contains recipes for cake and frosting and more than five variations. Thus, to make "A Winter Snowbaby Cake," one must first refer to the basic cake recipe eight pages earlier. Any recipe will do, it says, but "For ideas, look at the make-your-own cake mix project in the 'Food Factory' section." After referring to the table of contents and leafing through the section, readers will find a recipe for "21 cups of your own mix, enough for six large cakes." By this time would-be bakers will be laughing, crying, or frustrated, and will simply give up. The good ideas and information may inspire some creative cooks, but there are too many disparate bits arranged in a too confusing format for most readers. --Carolyn Jenks, Oyster River Elem .

    This book is great! A fellow teacher of mine showed me this book that she uses every week for planning her lessons. The book explains how to make delicious food items and cool experiments. I have seen the children in great delight making their own frozen yogurt or taste testing honey that is made from different flowers. I enjoyed the book so much I intend to purchase it for my own collection and use it in my own classroom.

    Format: Plastic Comb
    I wish I could give this awsome cookbook 100 stars. My grandma got me this book and now I know so much about cooking I could burst! In this cookbook Kenda and Williams lead you through a fun maze of cooking, experiments, stories, ideas, and fun.In this book there is 1,000 pounds of fun. One recipe I've tried is the Astronaut Shortbread cookies. They were easy and fun to make. They are the ideal snacks plus they taste good!

    I ordered six of these to use as a textbook for special education students. They were all in great shape and a fun addition to our cooking class. Thanks.
