  2. I purchased this cookbook for my niece, who is 9. It does have lots of recipies, but where are the pictures of what you are cooking. I’m an adult, and I like pictures of recipies. I know a child has to want to see pictures of the finished recipie. I do appreciate that it has cooking utensil information, and games, but lets get some recipie pictures too.

  3. I purchased this cookbook for my youngest grandson, age 8, because he told me he likes to cook with his mom. His dad is in the Army and they are presently stationed in Europe. He received the book so much faster than I thought he would, considering the distance it traveled, that I was a little surprised when he called me to say thanks.

    C. J. said thst he had already gone over every page in the book and picked out several recipes that he was going to make. He said it was really easy to read and he understood the directions.

    This is a ringing endorsement from an 8 year-old.

  4. I bought the book hoping to have more colored pictures for the grandchildren so we could see what we were cooking before we cooked it. Unfortunately, the pictures are not great in this book. The recipes are fun, but not for my intended purpose.

  5. I ordered this cookbook for my 7 – 10 yr old. I was excited to receive the cookbook and pick out recipes the kids and I could make together. When I opened the cookbook I found the recipes to be in black and white. Visually unattractive and very boring. Kids need colorful pictures to inspire them to help cook. I was very dissapointed in this cookbook and wondered how it received so many rave reviews.

  6. I bought this book for my 11 yr old but most of the recipes were too basic for him. It is probably good for a much younger child.

  7. This was my daughter’s first cookbook for “cooking for real.” She’s 8 years old and she’s now cooking dinner for us one night a week. The directions are very age appropriate.

  8. This cookbook is excellent! I read a lot of reviews for different books prior to purchasing this one for my 10 year old daughter. This is a great cookbook! The directions are easy to follow and they are really tasty. I don’t think there’s been anything that hasn’t been good so far! It’s paperback and a good size for her to manage when she’s cooking.
