Great Cookbook for Kids!

I wish they'd republish this and release it... This cookbook is a valuable tool for parents, educators, daycares, preschools, anybody who does cooking with children. There are in and around 80 recipes in this book which fall into several categories which are: Breakfast and Breads Sandwiches Salads Main Events Sweets and Treats Beverages One thing that really puts this book above the rest is that a large number, I'd even say a majority, of recipes are not unhealthy for children. I am so sick and tired of picking up cookbooks for children to find the measly little vegetable section, then dozens and dozens of ideas on treats to make with your children. Now, please understand, I'm not knocking making treats and cookies with your children (some of my fondest memories are making Toll-House Cookies with my mother), but for those who want to teach everyday cooking and safety in the kitchen, people teaching cooking in a school or club environment, or educators who have health requirements to meet in their meal plans, this book is a blessing. The meals suggestions all have fun, child-friendly names, and are wonderful for younger children. Some of our favorites in class include Porcupine Meatballs, Flying Saucers (ham sandwiches served on toasted hamburger buns), and Puff Puff Pancakes (there's no explaining them... But they're a gigantic hit!). Some of the recipes are best for children who're 1st grade and above, but others are perfect for even the littlest little bugs in preschool. Another child-friendly feature to this book is that all of the pictures in the book are like coloring book pictures... They are black outlined pictures that are colorless. So while the Crazy Crust Pizza is baking in the oven, your little ones can color the picture of the dog wearing a chef's hat, stirring his pizza dough. Along with these pictures and wonderful recipes, there are a mixing of jokes, riddles, and rhymes that make this book that much more child-friendly. Like all good children's cookbooks, this has a front section devoted to kitchen safety and helpful, written in child-friendly manner. Since this was written in 1985, parents will have to elaborate on things like cross-contamination and frequent hand washing, things that are left out in the book. There is also a cooking dictionary that is reinforced by having the children look for the words in the cooking dictionary in a word find. Brilliant! One of my absolute favorite parts of this book is the last chapter... Called "Neat Stuff," it has recipes for peanut butter playdough (non-toxic, good for little ones who put things in their mouths...), Silly Puddy, "Clay Dough", finger paint, chocolate finger paint, and a couple of magic tricks "which are actually scientific tricks). If you have the luck to come across this book, order it. It is so child friendly, and it's recipes are mostly healthy and age appropriate, you can't pass it up. The only negative I can think of for this book is that i
