This book is nothing short of revolutionary. It creates a brand new category of cookbooks for children - one in which children actually do the cooking and experience the fun and pride of doing it themselves. Every recipe is photographed - in colour - and your first thought is: "It looks too good. Even I can't make it like that." And then you'll be amazed when in a few deft steps, your child has done it! The tricky techniques of a kitchen pro are simplified so that anyone can do it. The amazing thing is - it's real food, too! Real crackers (that don't come from a box), real bread (that doesn't need kneading), dumpling ravioli, pad thai, chicken "bobs" on a stick. The sweets are better than most bakeries - from classics like cinnamon buns and triple-tier cakes to quirky classics-to-be like meringue dinosaur eggs and tiny peanut butter and jam cookies shaped like a slice of bread. Everything is in small quanitities, too, so it teaches a healthy lesson that everything is good in moderation, especially when you make it yourself. My kids use this book constantly. It is teaching them that they can do it themselves. And here's an added testimonial: the grown-up kids around the house are using it, too. Because it's great stuff - and it's so easy. This is an inventive, intelligent, useful, fun and beautiful cookbook - for anyone.
