DS is 6 and loves to cook, we've almost worked our way through the I Can Cook Cookbook just in time for his birthday, anyone got any recommendations for more children's cookbooks that similarly make it easy for the children to follow and do themselves?

DS has made loads of things from the Shrek cookbook. It's not as junk-foody as I had expected it to be.

I'd really strongly recommend this book by Sara Lewis. It's a baking book, so cakes, breads etc, but the recipes are excellent (I actually use quite a few of them myself when cooking without dd), and it's really clearly written and easy for children to use. The recipes are graded - so super easy ones for littlies, through to more complicated ones that will need a bit more parental help for smaller children.

thanks all

baking I'm not so bothered about, we do so much of our own already, also it's kind of DH's domain what with him grinding his own flour and all (don't ask Hmm )

I had no idea there was a shrek cookbook

There's a Roald Dahl cookbook (Revolting Recipes I think). If he's familiar with any of the stories he may enjoy that.

Second the suggestion for the Usborne book. We had the one for girls, and it was excellent.

usbourne seem to have quite a few for children - what's the difference between girls and boys and children?

revolting recipes could be good!
