When I first got the cookbook I was really excited to get started. My first recipe didn't turn out that well but after I chose a lovely recipe and it was very delicious the book is very easy to understand and it is in simple steps! I love it!!

Great for older "kids" too
I'm not at all embarrassed to say that I am a 31 year old woman who up until about 6 months ago wouldn't have even been able to melt chocolate for Rice Krispie buns. Now I can't wait to get out the cookbook and make a few fairy cakes or apple crumble. Oven roasted veg are GORGEOUS!!! Easy to follow and can I say for those like me who are slow to try something new in the kitchen this was a godsend. Thank you so much.

Best cookbook ever!!
I loved this book I only borrowed it from the school library and after I made the Lemon Layer Cake (By the way it was absolutely delicious) I just had to buy it!! Thank you Usborne for making this book I love it :D

I am 12 years old and I wasn't sure if this book was going to be really simple but when I read it, it was the best I've ever seen. It was clear and makes lots of really nice meals. My family have enjoyed letting me make tea for them.

Cookbook for Children
Being a 12 year old girl myself I feel that a review from me might show how interesting many young people will find this book. I already owned a baking book from the Usborne Company and when I saw this book it was at the top of my Christmas list! It has some really interesting recipes and what is nice is that they have really thought about some of the meals that children like. They also have shown a picture with every recipe and both I and my Mother agree that it adds a nice effect. I personally feel that this is the best children’s cookbook I have ever seen! I am happy to own a copy of this book.

I bought this book as it looked very appealing. My daughter made the spaghetti bolognese last night and it was delicious! Most definitely looking forward to making many more meals if they all taste as good as the spag bol did! Will be recommending this book to friends and family!

How cool is this?!
My friend had this and we had some absolutely gorgeous chocolate brownies from it. One thing though: an awful lot of the recipes had lots of sugar in them. But all the better for children! Overall, 9 out of 10. This is a fabulous, great value cookbook and so I recommend it to anyone looking for a child-friendly cookbook. :)
