Look I’m a Cook

DK. DK, $12.99 (48p) ISBN 978-1-4654-5964-0

Helping kick off the Look series, this welcoming activity book invites children to enter the kitchen with their senses wide open. Bright photographs illustrate step-by-step directions for 11 dishes, including guacamole, meringues, bread, and chocolate pears; a cartoon boy in a toque adds commentary throughout. Clipboard-style sidebars encourage readers to think about what they are seeing, feeling, and tasting (“Does the avocado change color? Does the lime juice taste sour and acidic?”), and the book also delves into the science behind several recipes. It’s an accessible introduction to cooking that emphasizes observation, curiosity, and experimentation. Simultaneously available: Look I’m a Scientist. Ages 3–7. (June)
