Lewis' collection of baking recipes is aimed at adults cooking with kids, rather than kids cooking on their own. Still, middle-school bakers will enjoy tackling the recipes on their own, and the color photos of preschool and elementary-age children confidently stirring and shaping dough will encourage very young children to participate. With the possible exception of the fruitcake recipes, the selection of decadent cakes and cookies will appeal to young sugar hounds, and a few savory bread recipes close the volume. This isn't a necessary purchase, but it is a clearly presented, nicely illustrated book for bakers young and old to share. Gillian EngbergCopyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
