    Format: Spiral-bound
    We Can Cook is a confusing book; it is more an activity book for children than a cookbook. The book is spiral-bound, medium format. The recipes range from simple like smoothies to rather elaborate ones (Stuffed Butternut Squash; Pizza). Nowhere the authors indicate for what age group this book was written. Pictures show children from age four to six but instructions given suggest a much younger age. ("Show her how to peel banana," or "halve the tomatoes and let you child add them to the bowl.") It seems children are only allowed to do very simple tasks. There are many pages of activities that are good and instructive for young preschoolers using Pitamic's training and experience. (Grow Your Own Sandwich Filling; Using Your Nose.) Many recipes have useful sidebars in Helpful Hints. The recipes are good and nutritious (Levinson is a dietitian), perhaps excessively so to the detriment of flavor. Brief head notes explain the recipe, ingredients and nutrients. Serving sizes vary from one to eight. Full-page photo illustrations show either a child with a parent in the kitchen or a recipe's final product. Unfortunately, the index is poor. You will have problem finding a previously used recipe. (As appears in The Portland Book Review.)

    Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
    We've enjoyed this nicely illustrated cookbook. It's spiral bound, so that it can lay flat, and it's easy to reference while you're helping little ones with measuring spoons. The cookbook has really healthy recipes and is broken up into food groups, which helps kids learn what's vegetable, what's dairy and so on. Some of the foods are different- like edamame (soybean) salad, salmon and vegetable kabobs and carrot muffins, but they are easy, tasty and there are plenty of familiar stand-by's, too, like homemade applesauce, mac & cheese, and chocolate pudding cups. It has some great suggestions for teaching kids (like explaining to them how fruit ripens, using bananas, which we all know but it's sometimes easy to overlook educational opportunities in the kitchen) and the authors have activities throughout the book (in example, how to help kids explore flavor). I am the kind of person to read the credits/small print, and was pleased to notice that one of the delicious recipes (fish sticks) was furnished by The Six O'clock Scramble, which is one of my favorite food blogs,
    (they have family meals plans that come with a handy grocery list and suggest ways to eat healthy). I am looking forward to giving this book as gifts to both parents and kids.

    The recipes are clear and easy to do. The illustrations are lovely. Jessica, the author, did an amazing job collating it all.

    This is a wonderful cookbook full of recipes that my whole family loves. My kids love that the food is familiar, comfort food and I love knowing that what they are eating is nutritious. The recipes are well written and easy to follow.
