The Children's Baking Book

Denise Smart, , photos by Howard Shooter. . DK, $17.99 (128pp) ISBN 978-0-7566-5788-8

This accessible baking book features more than 50 sweet and savory recipes—everything from tarts and potpies to brownies and muffins—with full-color photographs that show both preparations and tasty end results. Divided into sections on cookies and baked goods, dough, cakes, and pastry, the recipes are further labeled with levels of difficulty. Aspiring bakers should be pleased at the simple steps involved to make a raspberry cheesecake, but more difficult dishes, like a jam-filled cake roll, may benefit from adult assistance. The sweet-toothed should find the mouthwatering pictures and straightforward instructions hard to resist. Ages 7–12. (Feb.)
