This is one of the coolest children's cookbooks I've ever seen! It is not hard to get Laney in the kitchen with me, but sometimes I'm telling her everything to do, which I know shes like "mom stop Im a big girl" But there isnt many great kid's cook books that are inspiring trust me Laney has more than a few of them, and she doesn't pick up any of them! This one she actually picked out, we were at the book fair and she took this one over her beloved Ariel SHOCKING!! Anyways It has great recipes, good learning tools, and if you like your children in the kitchen with you, this is a good book to get, called the Magic Kitchen Cookbook! Every page and recipe is lined up with a disney charcater, like these "as you wish muffins" with alladin!
