A good book that's found in the adult cooking section, but is great for the child that can read and follow directions independently.

It's a good book that doens't talk down to kids like many kid cookbooks do.

Don't let your kid grow up to be an eater ...more
This book doesn't talk down to kids. It teaches how to cook and the why of cooking (e.g. what leavening does).

The brownies are amazingly good, and simple.
