The perfect book for children, this fun and engaging cookbook is written and photographed by a pair of young sisters for budding chefs.

Whether they're helping stir cake batter or producing their own YouTube cooking channel, kids of all ages are getting increasingly busy in the kitchen. This cookbook features twenty classic recipes that are fun, healthy, adaptable, and easy to prepare. From banana bread and the perfect grilled cheese to breaded chicken and apple pie, each recipe is written in a clear, accessible style that young cooks of every level will be able to follow. The author is a young chef whose love of cooking developed from her own family's food traditions like baking popovers with her grandmother and Sunday-night pizza making. By teaching kids basic recipes that can be adapted in endless ways, this book is the perfect launching pad to finding their way around the kitchen--or launching their own cooking careers.

I remember when I was a little girl; I loved to help cook (I thought I was helping with the cooking anyway). My children have been the same way. Especially my youngest, she loves to help make food. She has helped me make so many different things from cakes, homemade noodles, potatoes and more. She is my little sidekick in the kitchen. However, a lot of recipes aren’t really kid friendly, especially when it comes to the taste profile of the food. ’20 Recipes Kids Should Know’ offers different recipes like Classic Cheese Omelet, Crispiest Breaded Chicken, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, and more.

The beginning of the cookbook offers an introduction with sections such as: safety tips, glossary, cooking techniques and more. This provides a great way to teach kids about cooking and recipes. Each page offers colorful pictures, colorful fonts are used with the perfect size, and the directions are very easy to read and follow. At the beginning of the recipe, you get to read a little snippet about what they like about the recipe, ingredients, or why they love this recipe. It is very personal which is perfect for young children.

My little girl has enjoyed trying recipes from the ’20 Recipes Kids Should Know’. I think it is great that the cookbook is written and photographed by young sisters. It is put together with children in mind. Which I think is great. My little girl’s favorite recipe would have to be the ‘Perfect Pizza’, but she has enjoyed so many more from the cookbook.
