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 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.

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....

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.

Excellent price for a book in "very good" condition. The recipes feature lots of veggies and fruit! I'm looking forward to cooking with my preschool grandchildren.

3 year old granddaughter enjoys cooking and this book is her favorite. She has a Dora apron that she uses when she "cooks".

I was hoping to pick up a copy of our favorite child cookbook (Sesame Street's "C is for Cooking") for my 4 year old's friend. But the local bookstore didn't have it in stock, so I went with Dora and Diego's cookbook instead. I showed my son what I found, and he loved it so much that I decided to keep it for ourselves and order another one for his friend. We LOVE this cookbook! Very colorful, tasty dishes that are interesting to my two young picky eaters (ages 2 and 4). We have made several of the dishes and my son even loved the "meatloaf mudslide"! something I wouldn't have imagined he would even try. The fun pictures and recipe names are fun for my children and my 4 year old loves following each recipe step with me. He is proud of his creations. There are also some recipes for Latin American dishes that my family were not familiar with like horchata and empanadas. Overall, excellent recipe book for children!
