Your Kids: Cooking! is a fun, lively and educational program that teaches children to cook. It includes EVERYTHING a kid would need to understand the process, art and skills needed to cook a fabulous meal, snack or treat. It has beautiful illustrations, easy to read, step-by-step instructions about what tools, foods and skills are necessary for that particular recipe. I love that my daughter can have a cookbook that supports her independence, which she loves, while I know that she is also reading and being shown how to be safe in the kitchen. On top of it, the recipes are delicious. The only reason I am not giving this 5 stars is that I was not given the DVD to look at and I do not know if and how it might enhance the book. Otherwise, really excellent..

Thank you to NetGalley for allowing me to review this book for an honest opinion, ( )

Your Kids: Cooking! is a fun and engaging hands-on cooking program that prepares kids for a lifetime of healthy eating by teaching them how to turn fresh, wholesome ingredients into healthy and delicious meals. Much more than a just a cookbook, YKC is a multimedia cooking program that teaches kids how to cook in a structured, fun, and engaging way. Through the seamless coordination of step-by-step demonstrations on the DVD with written and pictorial directions in the book, budding chefs are effortlessly guided through the preparation of 20 delicious and healthy meals the whole family can enjoy. Upon completing the program, young chefs will have acquired all the cooking skills, techniques, methods and confidence they need to cook virtually anything they want. In addition to learning to cook, kids also learn the basics of nutrition and how to make healthy food choices. Following the guidelines established by the USDA, young chefs learn about the five food groups that are the building blocks of a healthy diet as well as which foods to eat more of and which foods to eat less of. The more kids understand about how to build a healthy plate, the easier it is for them make healthy food choices now, and for the rest of their lives. Although kids do all the cooking themselves, the program is designed so kids and their parents can enjoy the experience together. The parent's role is that of sous chef, there to provide support and encouragement, help, if needed, and to keep things safe. The multimedia approach used in the program makes it possible for kids to be 100% in charge of the entire meal preparation process. Taking on the challenge and responsibility for what is typically an adult role in the household develops confidence and builds self-esteem. Children experience pride and a sense of accomplishment as they share a meal with their whole family that they made all on their own.
