Not your average cookbook for children, Williams-Sonoma Kids Baking provides a basic course in baking written just for kids. The instructions are written at a child's reading level and include how to measure ingredients, correctly break eggs, beating ingredients, testing for doneness, etc. Even all the photographs are children doing the tasks.

The recipes were obviously chosen to be ones that children like to eat and include cookies, breads, pretzels, pizza, pies, and cake. Williams-Sonoma Kid's Baking is a great introduction to cooking that children can read their self and is highly recommended.

I just bought this book for my 3 year old and I to cook. This a wonderful book with excellent recipes and beautiful pictures. The book is pleasant and simple to understand. It provides nice photos of ingredients and shows kids doing the tasks. I love the simple, yet delicious recipes and it doesn't rush through the recipes -- gives lots of photos so your child can learn and get excited about cooking. I am buying more for my friends with children -- a wonderful gift!

I traveled to a few different stores to puruse their cookbooks for kids. My children (3 & 5) love to cook and bake with me, and I was looking for a book with good pictures/illustrations, and recipes that were easy to make with them, but also good to eat. This one, found in a kitchen store, fit the bill. The pictures are lucious and plentiful and I can easily invite the children to pick a recipe by looking through the cookbook themselves at the pictures. The recipes are well written, and have render so far great results. I really like how that offer up a list of all items needed at the begining of each recipe. Great book for anyone wanting to bake with their young children or want to give a book to an older child ready to try on their own.

The instructions in this book are clear, and the recipes are good. We've made about 4 recipes in this since we got it for Christmas. The instructions are written so my 6 year-old daughter can understand them, and (with some help) she can understand the recipe. Many of the recipes are made with ingredients that are either around the house or easy to get. I recommend this as a starter book for kids who enjoy being in the kitchen.

I would highly reccommend this book for anyone who has kids who like to bake. I gave it to a little girl whom I spend a lot of time with (don't have my own kids so I'll often spend time being "the fun grownup" with other people's kids). It was a birthday gift: I got her this book and some cookie cutters because she always wants to make cookies when I see her.
I love how it's actually at the kids' level, unlike some "kids" cookbooks. It shows them how to do everything they need to do for baking at their level, such as chopping fruit, creaming butter and sugar, kneading bread, and greasing pans. It doesn't show the advanced techniques that they don't need to know and that could put them in danger (e.g. making a sugar syrup or using a water bath). And it tells them that they need to ask an adult's help with some things.
The only thing I'd like to see different is there is no note to identify the steps that require adult help. I would like to see these steps in a different color or with a star next to them or something. That would make it easier for the kids to know when to ask for help.

the recipes are easy enough to follow but the measurements are way off and left a bad taste in my mouth. Like the peanut butter cookies blossoms measurements have very little flour no butter or oil in them. The banana bread has a large amount of leavening and almost no sugar for the amount of batter. they looked great but tasted like glue.Which is a shame because I bought other sonoma williams cookbooks and everything turned out fine.

This cookbook is great for kids, and encourages them to work with their parents. The pictures give a good idea of what baker should be doing. However, when we try any recipes from the bread section, their pictures of dough never match ours. The pretzel recipe was to DIE FOR! I think I ate 4 of them. They taste just like the ones sold at the mall! The pizza dough recipe wasn't bad either. The butter milk biscuts turned out light and fluffy. We haven't made all the recipes yet, but so far the only flop we've had was the braided egg bread. I'm the mom here and I was having serious issues with that recipe. We ended up throwing away the dough and if I remember correctly, eating a box of oreos instade. But this book is worth it for that pretzel recipe alone.

I bought this book after looking through lots of other books because I have always liked the idea of baking but have always been really bad at it but my daughter really was intrested in cooking with me, so I needed a book that that was for beginners and showed and explained exactly how to do everything with good pictures... I bought the book about 2 weeks ago and so far we have made the coconut cupcakes and the peanut butter kiss recipes, not only have we not killed the rest of the family but everyone has been amazed how good they taste. Only down side and this is more our fault that anything, is that if you don't have the staples of cooking (which we didn't) buying all the ingrediants can be a little expensive, I definetly think that buying regular cupcakes in the supermarket is going to be cheaper however I've never tasted such great cupcakes in my life before, I will definetly be redoing that recipe. I plan on making every recipe in the book, it's great bonding time with my daughter and I'm learing how to cook too...
