This is definitely going to be an annual tradition I can share with my nephew for a long time.
This book did not look fantastic at the beginning, but as we read it together, we felt like we were cooking together in our kitchen. The book reads and flows easy , just like eating your favorite meal on the dinner table. My 4 year old loves trains, legos, tools, and dinosaurs, but also loves cooking (well, at least try to help something). After reading this book he remembered "Bee-Bim-Bop", and requested "I want to eat Bee-Bim Bop!" few times. His is getting more and more interested in ethnic foods and enjoys it, and I think this book was very helpful.
And I liked the recipe, and the family togetherness, and the artwork. (Note: I asked around when I cooked this, as I was short a few things, and was informed that this is one of those "meh" recipes where you don't have to be exact and can add or take away as you wish. I love those!)
As an atheist/agnostic I wasn't super-thrilled with the page dealing with them saying grace, however, this is what I call a "deal with it moment". Lots of people pray, it's important to a lot of people, it's important for kids to know this sort of thing, and in the context it's just not a big deal in this book. If this is the sort of thing that concerns you, you can skip over those two pages. Just, you know, tape 'em together :P
Another reviewer made some comments about how, somehow, this book will prevent your kid from talking right or something. I have NO IDEA what she's talking about. Every line of this book fits the rules of Standard American English grammar. (Even if they didn't, it's good for children to hear different ways of talking. One book will not suddenly convince your child to speak a less prestigious dialect. Children learn language from the people around them.) And the rhymes are never awkward or forced in this book. Neither is the scansion weird.
