Hello, friends! Our book today is Kids Can Bake: Recipes for Budding Bakers, illustrated by Esther Coombs, a kid-friendly recipe book of baked goodies and treats.
Baking: it’s not just for grown-ups! This time around, Button Books brings a solid collection of recipes for baked goods, from the savory to the sweet, written and organized for young chefs. Featuring 30 recipes like beef empanadas, macarons, cake pops, profiteroles, and many more, kids can try their hand at tasty culinary treats (with adult supervision, of course).
Another winner! We were big fans of Kids Can Cook, and this is a great sequel to that delightful title. Once again, the recipes chosen are great for kids, and broken down into very easy-to-follow instructions. Coomb’s illustrations are colorful and engaging, and do a great job of making the food look scrumptious and giving helpful visual aides to the instructions. Basic techniques, an equipment guide, and safety guidelines are important and welcome additions to the opening of the book. JJ really enjoyed the few recipes we tried, and she’s excited to try more. Again, a great title for budding chefs and bakers, and a worthy sequel that matches all the charm of the original. Baby Bookworm approved!
