Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

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

What a great cookbook! Real food for real kids and their real parents. Not only is the layout easy to follow, the book contains good basic info on measuring, cooking techniques, and equipment. It also has invaluable information (in the margins on every page) on safety, nutrition, and other fun facts. The recipes are rated easy to more difficult so that cooks of all levels can enjoy this book. I may even get one for my cooking-phobic sister-in-law!

The perfect cookbook for kids, kids and parents, and parents alone! Great recipes for all ages. Nutritional tips and info are a wonderful plus for kids learning to cook. Be sure to try the chicken salad recipe.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a children's librarian, I bought this book for my library based on reviews and the pictured cover. When I buy my own cookbooks, I look for color photos of the recipe. The pairing of the recipe and final product are truly appetizing and certainly sell, not only the food, but also the cookbook. However, open Kids Cook! and find colorless pages! In fact, it truly looks like a coloring book. At first, I was really annoyed. Children also deserve color photos. Then I reread the reviews and re-examined the cookbook. OK, true, it is a fine little cookbook, easy to read, easy to follow.

With those things in mind, I came up with a way to write a totally positive review. After (you and) the child puts the product in the oven, s/he can sit down and color the recipe page! I suggest keeping nearby a big box of colors--one with bunches of choices in order to get the colors of the food just right. Unless the cook has homework, what better way to use the time while the food cooks?! Pairing a second creative talent with the first! Not only that, but the child can keep up with what has been tried at a glance. On the inside cover, create a chart of good/bad and all between ratings and then mark each colored recipe accordingly! What fun!
