" An interesting book, which is determined to find a new way to interest children in eating healthy. I appreciate the layout of the book, and the variation of recipes throughout. However, I am not sure that all of the recipes within are truly kid friendly. " said.

" Awesome simple cookbook! Great pictures, easy recipes that could be made daily, and it's not often for me that absolutely everything in the book looks delicious. This book would be a fantastic present for a new family or for kids, along with a few basic kitchen accessories and some fun salts and spices. " said.

" I got this book for my eight year old daughter who has a new interest in cooking. She has already bookmarked a few pages of recipes she'd like to make and has made two. She is a picky vegetarian, so mac & cheese and other "normal kid food" is not in her near future. This book is very vegetable and fruit heavy, but fun. I really like the descriptions of cooking techniques. It seems like a great book to learn kitchen basics from. It is also gorgeously photographed and illustrated. " said.

" This book is a beauty. The forest setting is lovely and Erin's artwork is wonderful. The recipes are, in fact, simple, as advertised, and vegetarian. I was thinking this would be a cookbook filled with highly nutritious foods for kids. Instead, it is food that kids can make themselves and find tasty. Fruits and vegetables are featured, but there are few proteins or fats. It would be a nice book to give to a child who is beginning to cook. " said.

"This author is both a photographer and a water colorist -- both of which she uses to present her simple vegetarian dishes. The effect is so stunning that I felt fed by just reading this cookbook. It illustrates the saying, "you eat with your eyes first." My satisfaction with this book probably also stems from the vibrant colors and presentation of these fresh fruits and vegetables against the stark, cold winter outside. If I ever check out this book again from my library and actual prepare any of the recipes, I will re-evaluate my star rating based on the actual foods.

Would be an exceptional gift for a chef or gardener. (Also, very fun to design food for children -- though my child would not eat most of it. At least cute kids were in all the pictures.)

"Every living thing needs some form of it. Certainly it's been the topic of discussions since the dawn of people. We sing about it. We write about it. We read about it. We grow, gather, and cook it. Where we choose to eat and what we eat are questions asked every single day.

Food brings people together for common causes in the form of benefits, food banks or soup kitchens. In many homes the kitchen and dining room are the center of family discussions; a time to sit down and review and relive the day's events. There is also a sense of pride in having grown food in your own fruit or vegetable garden. The Forest Feast For Kids: Colorful Vegetarian Recipes That Are Simple to Make (Abrams Books for Young Readers, February 16, 2016) written and illustrated by Erin Gleeson is a joyful look at food and its preparation.

My full recommendation:

"I purchased this book for my 6-year old daughter, now a vegetarian. The recipes range from SUPER simple (things she can make right now with little/no supervision) to somewhat challenging (giving her time to grow with the book). She's made the ricotta/lemon/honey crostini and the grape juice sparkler already. Both were winners with our family.

The book doesn't cater to picky tastes, which I love - recipes include ingredients like kale, mint, raisins, lemon zest, etc... teaching children that they, too, can eat a range of foods. The last section has some party ideas - grilled cheese party, ice cream sandwich party, and picnic party are just a few of the concepts that seem to have sparked my daughter's imagination. If she had her way, we'd be throwing some combination of these parties tonight!

This is also a pretty book to look at - my daughter spends lots of time flipping through the pages. I think this has to do with the author's watercolors and the stunning photography.
