Let's be clear - this is, as advertised, a cookbook for preschoolers, and has to be evaluated in that context. My five-year-old daughter loves it with the sort of passion that only small children loves things. She will "read" it on her own. She wants to make something different out of it every day. I'm never going to make a recipe from this book without her. Ann's run into some occasional discrepancies between the adult and kid recipes. There's the occasional vague iconography and inconsistent serving size. The resulting food is pitched to a kid's palette, although fairly healthy.But if you want to get a kid excited about cooking, I've not run into anything better.
