Grade 3–6—This very basic cookbook offers 125 recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, healthy snacks, side dishes, and desserts. The recipes are clearly presented, and are broken into easy-to-follow steps. From "Ketchup-Cola Chicken" to "Burger-on-a-Stick," most of the dishes will appeal to children. Cleanliness, food-expiration dates, and personal safety are introduced in "Kitchen Basics." Recipe variations, testimonials by children, and safety tips are scattered throughout. The dishes are indexed by ingredient, type of meal, or title of recipe. The stylized pen-and-ink and watercolor artwork gives the book a slightly sophisticated feel and the lack of photos of the finished dishes limits the appeal for younger children. Nonetheless, this well-organized, clever, and creative guide is perfect for readers who are eager to cook and who want immediate success.—Kathleen A. Nester, Downingtown High Ninth Grade Center, PA

Gold continues the simplicity-celebrating concept she employs in her adult cookbooks, such as Recipes 1-2-3 (1996), in this title for kids. Each recipe uses only three ingredients, and the resulting dishes, arranged into chapters such as "Morning Food" and "Quick and Healthy Snacks," are an elusive combination of sophisticated, healthy, and kid-friendly. Gold has an empowering confidence in young chefs' abilities ("Every kid should know how to roast a chicken"), but many kids will still need adult guidance. The design, featuring small fonts and stylish drawings, including pictures of the dishes, may attract teens as well as younger kids. Gillian Engberg
