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.
