another winner from katzen,
This review is from: Salad People and More Real Recipes: A New Cookbook for Preschoolers and Up (Hardcover)
I love all of Mollie Katzen's books so I was not suprised that Salad People was wonderful as well.
The format is excellent for young children. First, the recipes are explained in text for the adult and then in easy to follow numbered steps with pictures and few words for the children. The dishes are appealing to kids while using healthy and nutritious ingredients. This book is great for parents, preschool teachers, etc.
I recently taught a cooking class for young children and used several recipes from this book. The kids had so much fun making egg salad - Katzen's method of using an egg slicer to chop the eggs is such a fun and safe idea for preschoolers. We also made the Cream of Tomato Soup and they Tiny Tacos. All were hits.
I also highly recommend Honest Pretzels which I have used for teaching cooking to school-age children.
