Book Blurb: 

"Rookie Cookie Cookbook" takes young readers step by step through the cooking process, teaching such basics as measuring and how to use certain utensils, even how to set the table and have good table manners. Black-and-white illustrations are perfect for coloring while waiting for snacks, soups, main dishes, breads, cookies and candies to cook.

Review: Anyone that is familiar with The Mini Page in their local newspaper will know who Rookie Cookie is. I've checked the kids page in our paper since I was a kid. Rookie Cookie shares recipes that are kid friendly to make and eat.

I've always been a fan of cookbooks with easy recipes that anyone can make and most everyone will enjoy. I read through all the recipes in about a half hour. The cookbook is about 130 pages and it has some really great recipes I can't wait to try, like the chili and cheese burgers and the chicken chow mein.

There's more to the book than easy recipes it gives kids some tips on table manners and other useful things, like how to set a table and what some basic cooking utensils look like.

Its a fun little book and if this book were for a child it is filled with illustrations that can be used for coloring. (But this cookbook collector would never let anyone do such a thing).

I have a few kids cookbooks like this, and my only gripe is that there aren't more recipes.
