Children’s Cookbooks

Do your children like to help in the kitchen?  Why not (with your help) let them cook the family dinner?  The library has a wide variety of children’s cookbooks with simple recipes.  Some of our books contain recipes from around the world. We also have literary cookbooks so you can make dinner to go along with reading.  For the truly brave, we have a Fear Factor Cookbook.  For you campers, we have Cooking on a Stick: Campfire Recipes for Kids. Stop in and check one out.  Let us know what you made.

These cookbooks are also great for the novice cook (like myself!)
