Cool African Cooking
Cool African Cooking: Fun and Tasty Recipes for Kids
by Lisa Wagner
ABDO, 2011. 32 pgs. Non-Fiction
Part of the larger series, Cool World Cooking, this book is admirably well-formatted and contains simple but tasty recipes which should appeal to children and adults. Each book begins with a short tutorial on cooking in general. In the recipe section, Tools and Ingredients are clearly listed in separate colored boxes and, coolest of all, each step in the process is listed in a colored number which corresponds to a similarly colored circle around the picture of what is being done. Cool African Cooking is an excellent, accessible cookbook for middle-grade kids with some adult supervision and we are looking forward to acquiring the rest of the books in the series.
