" Beautiful layout, large font help to bring this book alive. Varying fonts in one page however make it less readable to all. For the most part, the recipes are accessible and honestly, look fantastic! " said.

" This is a beautifully illustrated cookbook/sketch book/art book that shares recipes for children - for them to help make and eat. I loved reading this book just for the sketches, paintings, and photos. But the recipes look tasty as well. " said.

" 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.
