Ages: 8 – 12

Cooking Class: 57 Fun Recipes Kids Will Love to Make (and Eat!) by Deanna F. Cook makes it to the 4th spot of the best kids’ cook books this year.

Cooking Class is packed with 50 simple recipes, all healthy and yummy. Kids will learn basic cooking techniques with simplistic, easy-to-prepare foods.
