Kid Chef: the Foodie Kids Cookbook


Kid Chef: The Foodie Kids Cookbook. Melina Hammer. 2016. 

As an elementary school librarian I have seen more kids being interested in checking out cookbooks. Most of the time, I have kids asking for them before I can reshelve them. As an educator I can honestly say this is one of the best cookbooks for kids I’ve seen. 

The book is divided into two parts. Part One features skills that are crucial in cooking (how to read a recipe, creating a shopping list, measuring skills, using the stove, safety, food prep, baking skills, etc.). Part Two contains recipes as a traditional cookbook would. The recipes in this cookbook include a variety of recipes ranging from breakfast to snacks to salads to main dishes and desserts. I was impressed by how many of the recipes were for healthy dishes and that there are numerous unique recipes that typically aren’t featured in a cookbook for kids. 

I am definitely going to look into buying a copy of this book for my school library. While the pictures in any cookbook are generally appealing, I love that Kid Chef contains so much more!

I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
