Grade 4-6-- An upbeat, general cookbook written from the point of view of two young people interested in making things that are delicious, nutritous, and fun to make. It includes 153 recipes, which are marked by one, two, or three spoons as to the level of difficulty. Occasionally, a prepared mix is suggested to simplify the process. The tone is breezy and inviting: each recipe is introduced with a note about a family member or friend's association with the dish. The black-and-white cartoon drawings are strictly decorative, but the directions are simple and clear enough for those with little or no experience. Better Homes and Gardens New Junior Cook Book (Better Homes and Gardens, 1979; o.p.) is for the same age group and features dazzling full-color photographs. The great variety of recipes in the Williamsons' book and the comforting presentation make it an appealing selection. --Carolyn Jenks, formerly at Oyster River Elementary School, Durham, NH

My kids used this when they were little, and now I'm giving it to them as they have their own children. Recipes are simple and just plain good!Published 7 months ago by Jeanie Riddell
I should have paid more attention to the publication date for this book...1992. The authors' ideas about good nutrition are decidedly out of date. Read morePublished on November 18, 2010 by Carol Danly
I bought this for my daughters about 2 years ago or so. They found it at the library and liked it, but I wanted our own new copy (a lot cleaner). Read morePublished on September 12, 2010 by A. Vezaldenos
