3 year old granddaughter enjoys cooking and this book is her favorite.
Maria Raquel Oliva
Pictures are attractive and all of the recipes are easy for a young child to follow, with adult supervision of course.
H. Peacock
Most kids know Dora and Diego, so this book is a great way to introduce kitchen activities.

The kids and I love this cookbook. It's very easy to follow. The recipes are very simple and common but with a mexican twist. Love the graphics! The kids can really relate. Two thumbs up!

This is an adorable book for the Dora or Diego fan. Very colorful, with a wide variety of healthy food. But some of the recipes are so overly simple that I ended up feeling sort of dumb for buying this....some items aren't so much recipes as suggestions for putting simple foods together.

However, perhaps seeing Dora and Diego eating vegetables will inspire my little one. And all the gang: Swiper, the Fiesta Trio and Benny the Bull are inside with their 'favorites'. It's very safety conscious, and if my son really ate this healthy I'd be pleased.

Keep in mind this is more for building 'kitchen enthusiasm' than really cooking. It would be cute if they offered it with little D & D measuring cups or an apron....

This cookbook will be prefect for my grandson who will soon be 4. The recipes and pictures really help to get an idea of what it is and what it is suppose to look like when it is done.

The good: Dora and Diego cooking means you get a multi-cultural, healthy look at food, some Spanish vocabulary, and a very attractive book. It's bound to lie flat, very good when following a recipe, and has a sturdy cover that will stand up to lots of time in the kitchen.

Not so good: The book has ingredient lists, but not equipment lists, and some of the pieces of equipment are not things I normally have around the kitchen. Cheesecloth? Seriously? Of course one should always read a recipe all the way through before attempting it, but in a book designed to have kids follow steps, selecting the equipment from the list would have been a logical step. In addition, some of the recipes take hours because of prep time (waiting for geletin to firm, for example) and cooking time estimates are not there. Again, I KNOW how to cook and how to follow a recipe, but the target audience is still learning, and these things should be made clear.

There's a good section for parents on the science one can learn from cooking, and several lists of age appropriate skills (e.g. a 2 year old probably can scrub vegetables, a five year old can probably do that PLUS these other skills).

There's a section near that, though, that addresses the kids and is in the EXACT same font, layout, and sophisticated sentence length and vocabulary. It's addressed to the users of this book, preschool to K, but could not be used by most preschoolers or kindergarteners.

The recipes are very simple and appropriate for preschoolers, pretty, and encourage healthful eating habits. They are sophisticated enough, though, that my 7 year old is enjoying this book with her best friend, who is 7 1/2.

Purchased for my 3-year old granddaughter to begin cooking together with her mom. Emmie loves Dora and her mom thinks the cookbook is great. They've already tried some of the recipes.

Most kids know Dora and Diego, so this book is a great way to introduce kitchen activities. I will start out by saying yes it is hard cover.. HOWEVER open it up and it has a spiral binding similar to a notebook.. the pages, given the price paid are less quality then i would have preferred they are about as thick as a page out of a magazine maybe thinner. Dont know if they pages will hold up to my 4 year old.. NOW the good stuff.. Cool recipes these are easy not only in the process but the ingredients as well. I wont have to go to some crazy specialty store for the ingredients and it wont take hours to prep.. I look forward to giving this to my daughter for Christmas as she is always very insistent that she be included with preparing and cooking all the meals.

This is a really cute cookbook if you have little ones that love Dora or Diego. Some of the recipes are named after characters or episodes in the cartoons. Even though most of the recipes are very simple- you have to keep in mind that its geared towards kids, and not adults. My 3 year old is quite interested in helping Momma in the kitchen, and now she's even more interested because we're making recipes with Dora and her cousin Diego.
I thought it was a good purchase--would recommend

I have many cookbooks for kids and this one is a great first cookbook to have/use. Great pictures, simple recipes, great ideas to get kids to think beyond the basic stuff and try new tastes/foods. If you want something for your pre-schooler, this is the one, save the others (BC Jr Cookbook, Southern Living Kids, etc) for when your kids are better able to move around in the kitchen.
