I love this book, as well as Pretend Soup. My 3.5 year old daughter and 1.5 year old son come together and harmoniously, enthusiastically work together to pour and place ingredients. They love smelling things and identifying what different foods are. My daughter will sit at her little table for 15 minutes at a time just looking at all the recipes, trying to name which foods are in the pictures and then asking if we can make that particular concoction. It has brought a lot of joy into our home. I feel great about the type of foods they're eating (and yes, they are much more likely to eat their salads when they make the food themselves). And best thing is that my kids aren't bored, they're not asking to watch TV. It really brings us together.

And i'm learning a lot too.
Little Devil
I bought this book for my kids as a Christmas present. All 3 of them, ages 1, 4, and 7 have enjoyed making (and eating!) the several recipes that we have tried so far. What I love about this book is that the picture recipes are easy to follow for kids, the recipes use "real" food ingredients, and I have been pleasantly surprised at how good the the recipes taste! The recipes call for a reasonable amount of ingredients that are easy to find at most grocery stores and are not too expensive. Mollie Katzen has created a simple yet thorough cookbook for kids. I have seen them begin to develop a real joy for cooking and trying new foods with this book. I have no complaints and will buy her other books too. Wonderful book.
This and "Pretend Soup" are both excellent vegetarian cookbooks. I've been a preschool teacher for a VERY long time and these are written by someone who understands children. The recipes are really good and the format/illustrations are perfect.
Still In Mind
My kids have asked if they can always be the ones to make meals. They have marked which recipes in here they want to make--most of them. Tonight my son made some amazing pink lemonade using a recipe in this book.

Each recipe has a two-page spread and a drawing to illustrate each step.

No offense to men on my title there--my husband does fine in the kitchen, but he refuses to use cookbooks. He himself declared that this is the sort of cookbook he needs, with the pictures and all. So it's a cookbook for kids and husbands.
I think this book is better for kids from kindergarten to early elementary grades. There are recipes for real food, not just fun food. The best feature is that every recipe has pictures that depict every step of the process. My six year old grandson loves it.
My kids enjoyed this as preschoolers, even before they could read. The recipes are explained using simple words and clear pictures, so kids can figure out what to do themselves. These are also very tasty recipes. We still use some of them even though my children are now using regular cookbooks and recipes off the internet.
Words can't express how much I love this book
