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. 

20 Recipes Kids Should Know is a wonderfully crafted cookbook for kids, created by kids. The Washburn sisters, Esme and Calista, have put together a fantastic and engaging book that will inform and inspire. Esme has included an awesome variety of accessible recipes, from dinner staples to desserts and more, and she presents them in a way that isn’t daunting or overwhelming. Her detailed instructions and tips make each recipe easy to follow and will give kids the cooking confidence they need. Calista’s bright, clear photos perfectly capture each recipe. Aesthetically, with its fun, bright colors, and pretty layout, 20 Recipes Kids Should Know is also a feast for the eyes!

Looks like a fun line-up. It's been awhile since I've looked at Dr. Seuss. So, that made me smile.
