From Booklist

The book's format is kid-friendly, with large print and cartoon art, but many of the numerous recipes are quite grown-up. 
The book begins with an introduction that includes safety tips, cooking terms, and an illustrated guide to utensils.
The recipes range from the truly simple (scrambled eggs, blended drinks, and grilled cheese sandwiches) to the more adventurous--crepes, chicken stock, salmon teriyaki, and carrot cake.
Each recipe includes cooking time, number of servings, and level of difficulty.
The list of utensils appears in a yellow band of color, and each recipe is given step-by-step.
Although it doesn't seem likely many kids will be interested in rolling their own sushi, there is still plenty for novices, experts, and the bulk of kids in between.

  •     This book makes cooking fun by introducing them to the kitchen and it's many basic items (measuring cups, etc...) It gives the children many ways to develop a love for cooking. They're going to have to learn how to manage their nutritional needs in their own kitchen and this is a great opportunity for them to learn how. They get to reap the rewards of their efforts and improve their skills. MY CHILDREN LOVE THIS BOOK AND OUR FAMILY BENEFITS FROM IT!

  •     One of the milestones of adulthood involves the acceptance of compromises: the pragmatic reconciliation of ideals and reality. In her novel titled, Paris, He Said, Christine Sneed explores the things a young woman chooses to do for her art, and the ways in which a mentor can exploit a need while fulfilling desire. By alternating narrators, Sneed allows readers to understand different perspectives. Sneed’s prose will please many readers, and this novel might lead to interesting conversation among book group participants.Rating: Four-star (I like it)
