" I found an interesting Mango Lassi recipe I would like to attempt one day! " said.

" I liked this little cookbook. My oldest child is 3 so this book was way too advanced for her but she found some really great recipes for us to try. " said.

" Pretty good book for parents of young executive-chefs-in-training.Quite young ones though: if your kid is 10, it's too late.Not much info on what cooking does to food, and the various methods; more of a tastebud exploration, which is of course the prerequisite to any formal cooking lesson. " said.

" When my husband and I retired it was with the idea that he wound cook one night a week. Three years into retirement and he has yet to make a dinner. He told me he needed someone to teach him how to cook. I have many many cookbooks and frankly you don't need to be a rocket scientist to make a simple meal. So I got this cookbook out of the library and handed it to him. He wasn't amused, but I was. The recipes are for children simple and healthy. " said.

" Pros: Lots of variations for many recipes (toppings, mix-ins, etc.)Clear directionsGood variety of recipesLots of healthy optionsLots of health/nutrition informationCons: Format!!! Who makes a cookbook with this kind of format? It won't stay open, will NEVER stand up to much use, etc.Photos: felt a little too staged for me: every picture is appropriately diverse. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. When there's consistently a lineup of multi-ethnicities, then it looks a touch forced. Best for middle grades. " said.

3.5/5 Stars

My opinion: This was a pretty cool kid's cookbook although I think it would be more user friendly to the older "kid chef". I did thing that some of the recipes could be iffy for most kids. There were a couple that, if I had tried to give them to my child, he would have looked at me like I had 5 heads. I loved the better chunk of the recipes for myself though.

One criticism...the book was incredibly busy. I would have like to have seen a cleaner layout.

"health-conscious children's cookbook. I love that this features large kid-centric photos and larger print, and clear, colorful layout for overall kid appeal. I did wonder about the use of raw eggs in the homemade mayonnaise--sounds yummy but potentially dangerous(??) unless you have your own chicken coop or have some other reliable source of farm-fresh (and more germ-resistant) eggs. My understanding is that the eggs I buy from the grocery store have been washed of their protective coating and thus are more prone to picking up salmonella and other harmful bacteria in the handling processes.

This book has a great selection of recipes (breakfast through dessert) with plenty of opportunities for substituting and creativity.

* As with most cookbooks, I found it helpful to be able to borrow this from my local library rather than purchasing, so for those of you who are contemplating giving cookbooks as a gift, please check your library first. *
