Fun for the whole family! My review of "Berenstain Bears' Country Cookbook"
If you and your children are a fan of the Berenstain Bears, then you are in for a treat! The Berenstain Bears' Country Cookbook is chock full of fun recipes for your children to tackle, whether you are looking for main dishes, lunch ideas, breakfast foods, or a variety of different desserts. Soon, your children will be requesting to make "Beary good mac and cheese" or "Blue-beary pie", and the whole family will be enjoying the results of their efforts in the kitchen!
My children loved getting their hands on this cookbook, and immediately started paging through the different recipes and remarking on the different characters pictured there that they've come to know and care about. The book is beautifully put together, with easy to read and follow recipes, accompanied by mouth-watering pictures of the end product. In fact, I wish there were more adult cookbooks that were so well presented! My children were very enthusiastic about some of the special recipes this book includes, such as the panda cupcakes which not only look amazing but taste delicious too! The recipes are all kid-friendly, and there is something in here for kids of all ages and taste-bud preferences. Now, I will caution that the focus in the cookbook isn't necessarily all natural foods and staying away from processed foods. But your children can learn to make reasonably balanced, healthy meals, and have a great time doing it too. Many of the recipes they will even be able to work through entirely on their own with just a little oversight.
If you are looking for a book that will spark your children's interest in learning to cook, then plan on picking up a copy of this cookbook for yourselves. Not only will your children learn some valuable lifeskills, but it is a great opportunity to spend quality time together making dishes that look good and taste good too! I give this book a solid recommendation and a rating of 4 out of 5 stars.
