Product description

In this sequel to her classic "Pretend Soup"--considered by many to be the gold standard of children's cookbooks--award-winning author/illustrator Mollie Katzen works her magic with 20 new, child-tested recipes including such delicacies as Counting Soup, Chewy Energy Circles, and Polka Dot Rice. Each illustrated recipe offers the child chef the opportunity to count, measure, mix, assemble, and most important, have fun. Designed as do-together projects--with the child as chef and the adult as assistant--these kitchen adventures will give children confidence in their cooking skills and inspire a life-long healthy relationship with food. With "Salad People" and a little time in the kitchen, budding chefs will cheer: "I like it because I made it myself!"

Customer reviews

By Esther Wieringa 25 Aug 2010 5

What makes this book so wonderful is not the recipes themselves, which are good but not that surprising. It is the way it helps you to let your child cook, starting as young an age as three years.

All recipes have four pages. Two adult pages, which tell you as an adult what your task is in this recipe (everything involving sharp knives or heat), the tools you need, handy hints on how to let a really young kid break an egg, or pour milk without getting it all over the kitchen, etc... And two kids pages, which tell your kids, in pictograms, what they should do to make the recipe. These pictograms do make it much easier for kids to follow the recipe.

Cooking from this book is fun, and it really can change your frame of mind about what children can do in the kitchen.
