One of the gifts that each set of kids got from the grandparents was Paula Deen's kid's cookbook. I sat down and looked through it early this morning and I think it will be a lot of fun for both of my kids since they like to do things in the kitchen and they are both reading now. There are lots of illustrations and the ingredient lists are not only in words, but in pictures also. The recipes aren't complicated, but do involve measuring, counting, mixing, baking, etc. There really are lots of lessons to be learned in the kitchen that can apply to school as well. I can't wait until we start making some of the recipes! The girl already has a cute apron...now gotta make one for the boy.
Thanks Kiki and Bear!
