Children’s Quick & Easy Cookbook by Angela Wilkes

DK Publishing always builds interesting publications through their use of beautiful, vivid photography and this cookbook for children is no different. When I was young, this is exactly the type of book that I would have spent numerous hours examining, desiring to make every recipe within the book. It begins with a table of contents dividing the recipes into super-fast snacks, speedy meals, perfect puddings, and treats & sweets. The contents also provide photos and descriptions of each of the recipes for easy perusal. Each recipe includes simple ingredients and step-by-step instructions with photos, while providing a culinary vision for the final product. Children can also learn common culinary and cooking terms using the picture glossary which presents terms, descriptions, and photos. This book is suitable for elementary and middle school students and also offers teachers of Family & Consumer Sciences an excellent resource for recipes for student labs.
