Children 3-11 years.
Children’s reading books, toys, and games are often targeted at specific age groups, and now it’s time to apply this approach to learning to cook. In Cook School, Amanda Grant teaches core cooking skills for children of elementary school age. Each skill is presented at the stage when a child’s development, self-confidence, and sense of independence are ready, with recipes grouped into three age groups: 3–5 years, 5–7 years, and 7–11 years. With plenty of step-by-step photographs for children to follow and easy, tasty, and fun recipes that they will love to learn, this is an invaluable book for parents to help teach their kids practical kitchen skills that will remain useful throughout life. As well as explaining kitchen safety, there are 50 recipes specially suited to particular age groups. Each dish includes key skills which will be used again and again throughout the book and throughout your child’s life in the kitchen. Parents will discover that this book covers topics that are no longer consistently taught at school or at home, while their children will love learning how to cook with Amanda Grant’s fantastic recipes.
