"This book was printed 100 years ago and seems perfectly wonderful as a starter lesson in the kitchen. When reading these books with children it would be wise to note technological changes that make many of the kitchen chores much more convenient ( we now have toasters for example). The variety of presentation keeps the reader interested... In "The Tramp" chapter the heroine prepares an omelet, or the one about the experiences dishes have when being washed! Delightful and copious illustrations! My book was missing the inserted pages... I know they are fantastic, but I am happy with this book as it is!" said.

" This was one of the old books we had at the Farm. I read it before I started keeping my book list at the age of 12, so the year is estimate. Though it was a long time ago, I still remember lines from it! " said.

"A children's cookbook from 1912 - something that Bab a Sub Deb might have read. Part storybook, part recipe resource, this is fun read for mother-daughter teams who want to learn about history and cooking. Recipes range from buttered toast to Queen of Hearts Tarts.

Interesting and helpful for researching for my book, "The Secret Life of Anna Blanc," an homage to old Los Angeles inspired by Alice Stebin Wells, an LAPD police matron, who in 1910, became the first woman in the Western world to be granted police powers.

"I have an original edition of this hard cover book and cannot find the cover here. There were no ISBN numbers. Published in 1915. By June Eayre Fryer. It's full of stories and recipes for youngsters and lively illustrations. My grandmother gave me this book when I was a child; there's good in being the eldest in a family. Like all the kids before me, including my mother, who loved this book, I embellished it with my own drawings and a few words. (sigh) There is a story about a bum and marks he leaves so other bums know where to find a friendly meal. There are napkin folding instructions, and more. The original cover design is in color of a young lady and her cat in front of an old fashioned stove talking to the teakettles, because of course everything and everyone in the book talks. Oddly, the wall behind her has what appear to be subway tiles on it, and I now have those in my kitchen! I never noticed that before now.

This book will be passed along to my own granddaughters, maybe when they're old enough to know not to deface the book, although I don't think I left any blank pages unadorned, alas.

" Adorable! Sweetness spiced with humor (the odd pinch soured by being WAY past its expiration date). Positive pro-social points for the zero-tolerance stance on name-calling. And the author's name is Fryer? (And Mary Frances has nicknamed her male doll "Alfonso" as...."Fonsey", AAYYYYYY!)Thanks for reading. " said.
