Cool World Cooking – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
[“Cool”] will no doubt be the reaction from children after they whip up these tasty dishes. Each book begins with basic cooking terms and techniques, a picture list of ingredients (in their original packaging so that people will know what to look for at the grocery store), and key symbols that indicate whether the preparation requires sharp tools, heat, or may affect people with food allergies. The step-by-step directions make it easy to create both essential components of meals (“Remarkable Red Sauce” in Italian Cooking) and side dishes (“Chapati Flatbread” in African Cooking), as well as to make main dishes that are as enticing as the pictures. These are worthy guides for the first few steps around the kitchen. . . . Use these titles to instill a sense of accomplishment and adventure in the kitchen. . .
