A lovely book designed to have children learn how to cook healthful meals on their own. DK Publishing is known for their excellent books. This cookbook is no different. There are fantastic photographs throughout the book. Ingredients, kitchen tools and step-by-step methods are pictured to help children understand how to create each meal. This book is very easy-to-understand and is set up for beginner cooks. Another thing that I enjoyed about this book was the way that there were a variety of protein sources, whether it be vegetarian, lamb, chicken or red meat. There are health tips within the book to help educate children on the importance of eating a variety of healthful foods. Food safety tips are explained too. To help test this book out, I had my five-year old son look the book over. He found the pictures easy to understand. Being this book is designed for nine to twelve-year olds, I did need to help him read. But he did like the cookbook, and could follow the recipes. There are a variety of recipes in here. There are recipes for: omelets, granola, tomato soup, cheese and potato pockets, chocolate cake, apple pie, vegetable tart, falafel, Naan bread, fruit crisp, fruit pops, roasted chicken, fishcakes, lamb kebabs, roasted vegetable lasagna, a stir-fry recipe, a curry recipe and much more! If you have a child in the house that is interested in cooking, pick this book up!

I bought this cookbook for my friend's daughter. She is very happy with it. She likes the easy to follow directions, and the photos of the food.

This is a great cookbook for kids. My five year old picked it out from many options, and when I looked closer at home, I saw that it is laid out in such an easy to follow fashion...Pictures of ingredients, Pictures of steps, final product...I honestly wish that other cookbooks did the same. I'm a visual person, and I just love this cookbook. My son and I have made several recipes together including the Apple Pie and the Fruit Pops and it really keeps his attention. He and I both love it. I highly recommend it.
