Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6?This offering is comparable in many ways to Better Homes and Gardens New Junior Cook Book (Better Homes and Gardens Bks., 1989) and Angela Wilkes's The Children's Step-by-Step Cookbook (DK, 1994). All three are general, beginning cookbooks for approximately the same audience, illustrated with full-color photographs that show children cooking and eating, and/or how and what to cook. Each title has about 50 recipes that are more-or-less simple, nutritious, and likely to be enjoyed by this age group. Directions in all of the books are clear, and are logically and attractively arranged. Good Housekeeping, however, places an emphasis on safety and cooking methods: a 22-page introduction gives thorough details about the dangers of sharp utensils, bacteria, and heat, followed by the importance of precise measurement, etc. Children who actually read all of this instead of going straight to the recipes may be frightened away by the many possibilities of failure or bodily harm. Another way of looking at this presentation is that the author takes no cooking knowledge for granted, but explains in detail every move beginning cooks must make in order to insure a successful dish. This is not a necessary purchase for libraries that own either of the other books, but large collections will benefit from having all three titles to accommodate the various tastes of budding young chefs.?Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME

I bought this book for my 10 yr old niece and she loves it! She has already made several dishes. Excellent for children 7 and up. My son who's 8 also wanted the book for himself. I'll have to get another one;-) Lots of pictures and easy to follow, great for adults too, especially those learning to cook for the first time.

Thanks

Format: Paperback
This is the best kids' cookbook I have ever come across. It is not cutesy. There's no gimmicky commentary or graphic dazzle. It does not involve building a log house out of pretzels. It really teaches kids to cook, and it teaches them to cook real food. Each recipe tells a kid exactly how to do things safely, without an adult hovering. The recipes are so good that I use two of them as meals for company (the roasted chicken with vegetables, and the chicken fingers with mustard dipping sauce). I know this book has been out for a while, but none of the others I've looked at can hold a candle to it.

This is an excellant book for kids 8 and up . It breaks down recipes in easy steps so children can actually follow them on their own without a lot of adult intervention.

I bought this book for my 10-year-old granddaughter. The recipes were immediately interesting for her and the directions are easy to follow. I loved the book because the detailed glossary of terms and techniques will be useful to her (and possibly the rest of the family) for years to come.

Old recipes that are not easy for a 10 year old to do by themselves. Had a front
page filled with a letter to two children in ink. I tore it out the best I could before gifting it.
