Format: Paperback
This book has over 300 recipes, all aimed toward young tastes and help with food preparation. There are good suggestions for what different ages can do in the kitchen and icons with the recipes dividing age guidelines (3-12 and 13 and over) for help in preparing the different dishes.
Recipes are separated into; morning, lunch, dinner, munchies, sweets, party, and for younger cooks, even though the other sections have recipes also for those younger ages. The edges of the pages are colour coded so it makes each section easy to find. There are pictures for most of the recipes and an index by type and alphabetically. Recipes have no nutrition information.
The dishes are easy enough to prepare, but yet will give somewhat of a challenge, like making your own maple sausage patties, granola bars or your own pizza dough rather than just pre packaged items.

The breakfast section has some especially great ideas for breakfast; like breakfast burritos, puff pancake with blueberry sauce and eggs in muffin cups; but in the other sections there are few salads or green vegetables. Most main dish recipes are pizza, chili, cheesy and pasta types...of course this book also says they are kid approved and these are the recipes the majority of kids seem to want.

We love this book so far. I bought it for my oldest daughter (11) who is learning to cook with supervision. Lots of pictures, easy to follow, and so far the recipes are yummy. We have a long list that we want to try. I actually own a larger Taste of Home cookbook and have only found a handful of recipes in there that my whole family will eat without being complicated or time-consuming for me. I think we will be using this smaller book quite a bit more and buying copies for gifts.

My son, who loves to cook, received this as a birthday gift. The pictures are fantastic. There is a picture for every recipe, which is a huge plus when it comes to kids' cookbooks. He can look through it, and see exactly which things he'd like to make.

One small con is that many of the recipes are not exactly homemade (which might not be a con to some). Many call for "packaged biscuits or mixes" but there are still plenty of recipes that do not!

This book should be called "Kid Approved Junkfood". Yes these are recipes that a lot of kids will like but kids like candies and would you serve candy as a meal for each mealtime? This book contain entree recipes that are mostly variations around cheeseburger, mac'n cheese, more cheese (there are 49 recipes based on cheese), pasta, chili and sugar galore. There's only 10 recipes that are legitimate vegetable dishes and not as a decoration to claim that it has vegetables on it. I'm not a health nut but seriously, only 10 vegetable recipes out of 300+?? It's no wonder there are so many obese kids in America with recipes like these. I gave it two stars because there are a few recipes that actually look healthy but you have to wade through a bunch of artery-clogging-set-your-kid-up-for-a-lifetime-of-health-problems filled recipes.

I bought this book for my 8 year old niece and she is having a blast with it! We've made the suckers, apple dip, and cookie puzzle so far in the past 2 days and she's looking for something to make for supper right now. I also have 2 college age daughters (17 & 19 yrs) who like it so much I've ordered 2 more for them to take with them in the fall. The recipes are simple with easy to find ingredients that most people have on hand. The pictures are bright and attractive & the pages are thicker so they won't rip too easily.

Bought this at the advice of a co-worker. I have a very picky granddaughter and was trying to find ways to get her to eat different things. She made her first dinner for the family last night and it was a hit. Tuna casserole and she ate two helpngs even after finding out the ingredients.
