Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-5 Regardless of the title and the fact that this book purports to be especially for children age 6 and up, these 50 very good recipes are not for beginners. There is much use of the electric mixer and blender, separation of eggs, and folding in of stiffly beaten egg whites. The organization is strange: in addition to breakfast foods and cookies, there are sections such as "Bearing Gifts" and "Holiday Specials," whose contents are a melange of more cookies, cakes, etc., rendering the section headings meaningless. The directions are clear and include safety instructions, and the recipes are varied and imaginative: cream puffs, baked Alaska, graham crackers, soft pretzels, and many more. The sugar content is not excessive, yogurt and other healthy foods are often used, and no packaged mixes are included. Instructive drawings accompany each step of preparation, and there is an index.

I found this book in our local library and used it to create a cooking project for a group of multi-age children. We tried the Thumbprint Cookies with great success. Using it gave me a great idea for a birthday gift and I've subsequently ordered several copies at Amazon.
The classic recipes are well-illustrated, easy-to-read and follow, and yummy. I especially liked the numbered step-by-step directions which are easy for children to read themselves. All the recipes feature multiple illustrations and begin with a list of needed utensils as well as ingredients. The author also covers safety issues involving the oven and stove.
After using it for my project I decided to give it, along with a kid-size apron, as a gift for a six-year-old girl. This book offers children and their parents lots of opportunities for fun and learning and will outlast any toy!

I'm still learning things from this book. It tells you how to tell when things are done, like knocking on the bread to see if it sounds hollow. It's well written has clear instructions and pictures, and tells the child when to ask for adult assistance. The recipes are delicious, easy, and include many healthy treats as well. They also appeal to an adult palette as well as to a child's. I highly recommend this book.

Had a copy when my children young and now my daughter has it to share with her little ones. I bought another copy just to read and remember. Great recipes too!

Had seen this book at my daughters-- love the presentation. Great for kids and adults. Love how the author explains in detail in every day language the kids understand-- my grand daughter is 2-- but we will use this book for a long time. I bought the other books in the group too!

Love them--

This was MY first baking book as a kid, and I loved it! I always found something new to learn from it. I loved the pictures, the recipes, and the cute bear that took me through the fun of baking. Get this for any kid! Everyone should know how to bake something, so this is a great start. Memories!
