About Kids Cooking: Students Prepare and Eat Foods from Around the World
Engaging photographs follow a diverse group of kids as they find out where their food comes from, how to prepare it — and how great it is to share a meal together.
Roll up your sleeves, wash your hands, and join four different groups of kids as they prepare recipes from all over the world, step by step. George Ancona’s photographs record every crumb of effort as the children make their way around the kitchen, chopping, measuring, rolling, mixing, and learning about the food they’re eager to eat. The end result? Roasted vegetables from Morocco, fried rice from China, minestrone from Italy, and salsa from Mexico, filling the kids’ bowls and plates and tantalizing readers who may be inspired to cook up something savory of their own.
Kids will sense the excitement that accompanies these classes and clamor for cooking lessons. Spice up school, library, or home cooking projects with this beginning guide to the fun of cooking. —Kirkus Reviews
