I highly recommend this book for everyone
The pictures are fun and descriptions are easy to follow, and the ingredients and equipment list make it easy to take a quick glance at what you'll need. What I find the most, though, is inspiration - following a few basic techniques (pack it tightly and neatly) and flipping through the pictures, I am ready to spruce up boring work lunches! A few items I'm definitely making: a rose from sliced deli meat, antipasti bento, radish roses, and strawberry hearts.
I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to add interest to their own lunches (or for the kids, too, sure!). You'll learn how to make packing a bento quick and easy, find a wide variety of examples, and you'll probably think of some of your own ideas.
I recommend this book for moms/dads looking for ideas to change up the regular pb&j to use as inspiration! Actually, I can see my husband using this book or even the kids helping to recreate these meals when they are older. I do love the beautiful photos!
The list of food suggestions by color is a great idea. My son has used this many times while making his own creations inspired by recipes in this book. He is very proud of his creations and I've noticed that he tends to eat more vegetables when they are presented in this way.
The best part of this book is that my kids love it. They love to look through it, and often request particular lunches from it. At this point, they've read and re-read it so many times that it's looking a little worse for wear, so I'm now ordering two new copies... one for me, and one for them.
Highly recommend this book!
A fun and useful book that makes a great gift -- but be sure to get a copy for yourself as well!
