Review for Busy Little Hands: Food Play!

Busy Little Hands: Food Play!: Activities for Preschoolers, Cooking, Cookbook, Non-fiction, Children's Books, Fun, Amy Palanjian, Hands, Fruit, Bread,I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

I just love cooking and baking, and I love reading cook books. Especially books featuring recipes for kids because often there are fun recipes with food in a cute way. This one shorter than I had expected when I requested it (Netgalley doesn’t put in page numbers), but it was a cute one.

This book is for pre-schoolers and features some very simple recipes to try out with them. From making delicious yogurt with just a few simple ingredients to pick and mix breakfast. The recipes are very easy to follow with arrows with text pointing to big photographs of what one needs to do. There are tips on how to prepare and suggestions for what you could add to make it just a bit more special or extra. The adults are also around of course, most of the recipes start with what the grown-ups can do to prepare, which I quite like.

Foods get fun faces and I just love it. It is quite simple of course, but I can’t help but giggle when I see a face in food. Eyes with olives, a nose of mozzarella. Or make monsters! So much fun.

The food is mostly, if not all, very healthy. Fruit, veggies, hummus, yogurt, that kind of stuff. I did like that it was all so healthy, though maybe I would have liked some less healthy options as well. But maybe that is for another book!

I really enjoyed reading this book and I would recommend it to everyone with kids. It is a fun and yummy book with tons of fun recipes that are very easy to follow.

Star rating, 4.5 stars
