Synopsis

Get ready to help with dinner for real!

Are you a kid?
Then this book was written especially for you. With it, you can become a fantastic cook and amaze your friends with PITA SPIRALS and CREAMY CORN SOUP or CINNAMON SWIRL STICKY BUNS and BEST HOT CHOCOLATE. Or you can fill your lunch bag with a wedge of SPAGHETTI PIE, a serving of MAPLE YOGURT FRUIT DIP, and a handful of HONEST PRETZELS that you made yourself.


Are you a grown-up? Then welcome to another very special cookbook by Mollie Katzen. In these pages she speaks directly to children through 65fully kid-tested, illustrated recipes that require only a little adult assistance. It's not just a cookbook full of yummy recipes--it also gives young cooks, ages eight and up, a chance to practice reading, math, and logic skills. And think of the sense of accomplishment they will feel as they grow into creative, confident chefs.

Review, School Library Journal:
"The author's intent is that children participate in the cooking process; enjoy their accomplishments; and learn bits of math, science, and something about cooperation along the way. The nourishing recipes are clearly presented in an encouraging tone..."

Review, Curious Parents, June 1, 2010:
"Filled with healthy dishes that appeal to kids."
