Review: National Geographic Kids Cookbook

A fun cookbook great for kids from Barton Seaver (a master chef and National Geographic Explorer)

The Set-Up:
The book follows the months of the year with several dishes to try. The recipes are easy to understand with clear instructions. Sidebars give cooking tips, details on different cuisines,kitchen skills, people profiles, cooking challenges and more.  Pictures and color blocks make this a very attractive book

The Good:
The range of recipes from main dishes to desserts to appetizers to cultural dishes makes this a diverse book for foodies. The book touches upon entertaining, going green, and eating healthy.

The Bad: I don't know which recipe to try first
A fantastic fresh cookbook that kids and teens will enjoy reading and testing out the recipes.

Recipes I want to try
(either with teens at the library or just because it looks yummy!
Raspberry Yogurt Parfait
French Puff Pastry Napoleon
Zucchini Bread
Awesome Oatmeal Cookies
Fruit Smoothies
