David Atherton’s Baking Book for Kids | ISBN: 9781536231304 | Ages 5-9 | $17.99 ($23.99 CAN)

My thoughts: 
I vividly remember my very first cookbook. As a young girl I attended a children's cooking class hosted by the local gas company (they also sold cooking ranges). They gave each of us a cookbook. It had lots of good recipes that were simple enough, but also challenging and you could really learn to cook using it. This was different from the few cookbooks my mother had.

And as a mother, I later used the same cookbook with my children and I also acquired a "modern" one. They loved both! So it is a joy to present this delightful Baking Book for Kids from David Atherton.

Being honest in this review, I have to state that I have not personally tried these recipes. But based on my personal extensive kitchen life cooking for a family of seven and the bulk of that cooking being "scratch recipes," I can say the recipes look good, have relatively few ingredients, are simple to assemble yet can present a bit of a challenge for younger cooks, and are basic yet have delightful visual appeal.

The step-by-step processes are illustrated exceptionally well and feature a cast of young cooks and bakers diverse, happy, and excited about their activities. This would make a delightful gift to any child or home with several children. I would have loved to have this one for my own children. I plan on gifting my copy to one of my grands!
