So, we got this book for review. My kids are all teenagers now and one adult (14, 18 and 21). All of them know how to cook. I started to teach them when they were still little. We always had fun in the kitchen and they know how to make things from scratch and how important fresh ingredients are.
So when the book arrived, at first I thought oh well, just something I have to read through. Then my kids got a hold of it and started to really get into the swing of things. They loved it!

I am a firm believer in teaching kids to cook, and this is a great cookbook for doing just that! It's well and good to teach one on one familiar dishes; I think kids need to learn how to cook WITHOUT a recipe all the time, but they also need to learn how to cook from a recipe as well. One of my daughters just turned 13 yesterday and is passionate about learning to cook. This book works great for her as well as my younger daughter. It covers beginning cooking instructions, breakfast, lunch, snack ...more

This is hands-down the best kids cookbook I've come across.

The recipes are things my kids (and any kid I've ever known) would be happy to make and eat. The ingredients are simple and easy-to-find. There are (colorful and fun) pictures for every recipe plus step-by-step photos for almost everything. There are tons of healthy foods in here but none of it looks like boring health food. There really is a lot of helpful information for beginner cooks. There's fun extras as well, like how to fold a "

This would be so fun to booktalk. Very clever little food projects for kids to make, and they are visually appealing without the perfection of DK that makes you think you can never compare. It is a spiral spine which is good for cooking, but bad for libraries. Nonetheless, the kids would love the recipes which nicely range from easy to a little harder to allow entrance points for many different levels. I haven't seen a children's cookbook I've liked so much in a long time.

Fifty-seven recipes that children can easily make along with tips to assist in the kitchen! This great starter cookbook gives you an introduction to breakfast, lunch, dinner and everyone’s favorite, dessert! This would be a great gift to give a child and in return they learn to cook and bake, which helps you! I will be purchasing one for my home collection!

Perfect for kids and family cooking

I love this kid's cookbook. Unlike many cookbooks for kids this one provides basic and useful recipes that a kid could easily learn and build on. There are great pictures and clear instructions. I especially liked the ideas after the recipes that demonstrated some options to change up or add on to the basic recipe.

This book has tips and recipes that even adults would use! My tween loves this book and wants to make recipes for friends and family over Labor Day weekend. We are going to start easy with the chocolate-covered strawberries.

I got this book as my first cookbook. It was a fabulous book that I use over and over again. I recommend to new chefs. However, it did not clarify whether the dry ingredients had to be scooped in or leveled.

Bought hard copy. Tons of easy to make recipes for my 12 year old. Super yummy too!
Roarke liked this book. We did some recipes together. Some were too simple and not truly recipes but others were great for us to do together. it was fun for a 6-year-old

This cook book was on NPR's list of best children's books of 2015. While this is a super fun cook book targeted at kids, there isn't much in here that my super picky 6 year old would eat. But then again, for that, I would need a cook book that teaches kids how to make their own cheese sandwich, cheese pizza, or mac & cheese. (boy loves his cheese, but not much else!).

The recipes are something that kids as young as 4 or 5 could likely make with some help or supervision.
