I liked this so much when I checked it out that I felt compelled to go and buy it. I have made probably at least 20 plus recipes from it and they have all been great. I made adjustments to some seasonings for some of them to fit my families tastes, but overall the book rocks. I really like that all the recipes are easy to make with easily available items, for the most part. I think it is also a plus that there are such a variety of flavors and regional items. This is one of the books i reach for when I want to make something different or try something new. This resides in my top ten most used cookbooks in my home.
Bottom line: you cannot go wrong with these books. They teach kids all sorts of stuff and they have tons of pics to keep them interested. This is the perfect format for non-fiction reading. A great break from all the fiction my kids love to read.
my kids love all the eyewitness books, they have a great amount of information and lots of pics, the perfect balance of visual stimulation and edible knowledge. I think we have read all of these.
As is said in another review for this whole series, my daughter loves these things. She can sit and read them for hours, so I have to check out like five at a time. Hope they keep making these even after her reading level goes up.
I have checked this book out before and am going to request it again. I think it strikes a good balance between the over-protection of kids and allowing them to explore things themselves. I love it. I hope they make this a whole series.
