Editorial Reviews

Review

"A must-have for orthodontic patients and their parents. Tackles everything from breakfast to desserts, all with tender teeth and braces in mind."  —About.com


"Now there is relief in the form of this user-friendly cookbook. A nice gift for patients and referring orthodontists."  —Impact: The Newsmagazine for General Dentists



"This is one clever and fun book for the whole family. Each of [the] 52 themed activities is good for a week's worth of fun, and gives the parent or adult a lot of room to change the activities within a given theme. The homeschoolers love it because you give them lesson plans—excellent!"  —families-first.com


"Your book is wonderful and very comprehensive. It has become a resource for our education department, and I am sure would provide value for our teachers and directors in the field."  —Deborah Reid, corporate education and materials specialist, La Petite Academy, Overland Park, Kansas



"A wonderful resource for nannies, family child-care providers, and anyone who needs a little jump start to get their creative juices flowing. A great addition to the professional child care provider's library."  —Jenny James, program manager, Nanny Training Institute, a division of LifeWork Strategies, Inc., Rockville, Maryland


"When it comes to comfort food, there's nothing like the tips and recipes in The Braces Cookbook. Everyone in braces (and their supportive families!) will love this book."  —Don Dible, coauthor, The Dental Team


"My first thought was, why didn’t anybody think of this before? The recipes are delicious and easy to follow. What a great gift!"  —Tina Nocera, founder, www.ParentalWisdom.com

About the Author

Pamela Waterman is an engineer and author who has published four books on recipes and children’s activities, dozens of parenting, craft, renovation, and small business articles, and more than 80 technical articles. Brenda Waterman is the 15-year-old creator of the Braces Cookbook concept and the developer of many of the book's recipes and tips. They live in Mesa, Arizona.

More About the Author

Pamela Waterman is a professional writer, electrical engineer and mother of three daughters ages 21, 18 and 16, all of whom have had braces. She delights in helping children discover the fun and accomplishment of hands-on activities, and has conducted dozens of science and engineering workshops for teachers, guidance counselors and youth in kindergarten through college. Not only does she commiserate with those wearing brackets, elastics, headgear and expanders, she also draws upon her own full-metal experiences back in the days when a typical orthodonture treatment took five long years, and a recent year in adult braces. Always interested in cooking, Ms. Waterman has also been collecting recipes for tender teeth since 1967, when necessity drove her to reinvent forbidden foods in cleverly favorable forms.

Her parenting book The Absolute Best Play Days: From Airplanes to Zoos (and Everything In Between) (Sourcebooks 1999) has been acclaimed by parents and caregivers alike for its creative ideas detailing themed, multi-age play-activities including craft projects, inside/outside play, read-aloud book recommendations and child-friendly recipes. Deborah Reid, Corporate Education and Materials Specialist for the nationwide childcare chain, La Petite Academy, noted, "(the) book is wonderful and very comprehensive. It has become a resource for our Education Department," and used it as the basis for the company's entire preschool summer-camp program in 2001. Though currently out of print, sales reached 8,000 copies across the U.S., Canada and Europe.

Contributing as co-author to the educational summer-review book JumpStart 5th Grade Activities (Knowledge Adventure Software/EPI 1999) also confirmed her ability to present information in a readable yet entertaining style. This book, one of a series of seven JumpStart books that sold over 100,000 copies as of 2003, helps parents prevent summer brain-drain for their 9-to-11-year-olds via challenging hands-on projects.




Most recently, Ms. Waterman has published The Braces Cookbook: Recipes You (and Your Orthodontist) Will Love (the Discovery Box 2006) and The Braces Cookbook 2: Comfort Food with a Gourmet Touch (the Discovery Box 2009). Written to help children, teens, adults and parents solve the problem of what to eat when their teeth hurt, both books offer 50 recipes each, plus tips, trivia and tasty solutions, based on more than thirty years of recipe development targeted specifically to this issue. The first book has been awarded the Good Parenting Award from Parental Wisdom, a web-based parenting community in Nutley NJ (www.parentalwisdom.com) and the 2007 Best Cookbook Glyph Award from the Arizona Book Publishing Association (www.AZBookPub.com). The second title was honored with a 2009 Best Cookbook Next Generation Finalist Award from the Independent Book Publishing Professionals Group (www.IBPPG.com).

Ms. Waterman's more than 90 articles on parenting, small business, home renovation and engineering design have appeared in such publications as Family Fun, Highlights, the East Valley (Phoenix) Tribune, Better Homes and Gardens Kids' Rooms, the Chicago Tribune, Cricket, and dozens of technical magazines. She has been a speaker at national parenting and engineering conferences, including the International Nanny Association 2001 Conference, and has been featured in television news segments, more than 50 radio interviews, national publications, and in the book The Entrepreneurial Parent by self-employment gurus Paul and Sarah Edwards with Lisa Roberts (Tarcher Putnam 2002.)

At elementary schools as well as at universities, the author has presented and coordinated hands-on workshops ranging from two-hour meetings to month-long camps. She has arranged book promotion workshops at Borders and Barnes & Nobles bookstores around the country, successfully promoting The Absolute Best Play Days with minimal publisher guidance. Seven years as a Girl Scout Leader and twenty years of volunteer teaching about science, engineering and the editing process have also served as testing opportunities for the development of many of her projects, from recipes to rockets.

Always interested in technical fields as well as in writing, Ms. Waterman earned a B.S. degree in Astronomy at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst and an M.S. in Radio Astronomy at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Ms. Waterman has served on the national Editorial Board of the Society of Women Engineers since 1996, and has been a Contributing Editor to Desktop Engineering magazine since 1997.

My son can eat!

I plan to save it for times long after I get my braces off, as I am sure I will be recommending a great number of recipes to others (and making more for myself!)

They are easy to make and delicious.

The Watermans' cookbook is a great resource for anyone, braces or not. The recipes are totally appealing and tasty. I wish I'd had this book when I had braces! I remember eating only tomato soup and chocolate milkshakes for days on end because my teeth were so sore. This book is a godsend for those who are sporting appliances of any kind in their mouth!!!

I was disappointed that the book was fairly small. The recipes were mostly appetizers, drinks and such. The meals were basics that are most likely staples in every family's menu already. I just was very underwhelmed. My son is already eating mostly pasta and soups, and this was more of the same. It would have been nice to see the table of contents before I ordered it.

I am an orthodontist and I strongly recommend that you purchase this book for your child who is about to get braces and those already in braces. It is a delightful book, written in a manner that all ages can read and understand. The authors do a great job at giving us simple, fun recipes that will not only meet the nutritional requirements for the patient, but also set their mind at ease, in that they will still be able to eat tasty foods. Great book. I tip my hat to the authors.

I had higher expectations. Not many recipes and the ones included are mostly desserts. Needs more options for breakfast, other that bread. Dinner options are OK. Doesn't include lunch recipes other than smoothies but by day three my son was done with liquid food, he needed something more fulfilling....

I expected more but it was enough. The information on it and what I received didn't match all my expectations.

The Braces Cookbook - Revised & Expanded Edition is a great for people in orthodontic treatment! However, the recipes are sure to please everyone!

When someone gets braces, they often receive a list of foods they can't eat. This cookbook offers many substitutions for the foods that should be avoided while in treatment. Additionally, it suggests recipes that provide comfort on those days when the teeth are most tender from treatment.

The full-color photo with each recipe makes this an easy to follow cookbook in the kitchen!

As a marketing consultant who works with orthodontic practices, I highly recommend this cookbook!
