Kids Cookbooks

I love good kids cookbooks like DK's The Baking Book by Jane Bull. Good kid's cookbooks have bright inviting illustrations. This is especially important for kids that are too young to read. I like the fact that this one has stuffed animal characters that appear in all the recipes.
Good kid's cookbooks also have step-by-step instructions so that kids can understand how to do each part of the recipe.

This afternoon...Katie helped the boys...make scones from this cookbook.

They are learning all sorts of math concepts...

they are learning the language of cooking... 

they are learning practical skills...

but mostly they just had a good time.

They were proud to have made the teatime snack...

and we were happy to enjoy their efforts.

Another great cookbook for children is the Kids' Fun and Healthy Cookbook.
Here is a great review for this book.


  1. What a fun time making scones! We're always looking for good children's cookbooks - thanks for the recommendation :)

  2. I'll have to find that book...I love to cook and teaching my 4 yo daughter about cooking is our favorite time together...

  3. Jenny loves to read our Sesame Street cookbook... she likes to tell me: "This looks like a possibility for dinner!" :)

  4. wow. I have never seen anything like this. It looks wonderful. We are just starting to cook together and this would be an inspiring resource. Thank you for sharing this.

  5. I love the picture step by step instructions and seeing how much the obviously enjoyed cooking! So happy to have you linking up!

  6. This looks like a fantastic cookbook. Mine are too little to read just yet, but love to cook so this would be a great intro to helping them become more independent in the kitchen.

    We did a picture scavenger hunt one night to make cookies together. I took pics of all the ingredients and then they had to find them in the kitchen. The oldest actually knew where most of them are kept. It was a fun activity.

  7. This would be a perfect book for a preschooler or non-reader because of all the pictures.

  8. That does look like a good book Phyllis! I recognized that author's name from a craft book we have and enjoy. I'll have to look for it at the library.
