If you'd like to encourage the love of baking in your kids, this baking cookbook written specifically for children is just the ticket. Anything from Williams-Sonoma is top notch and this cookbook is no exception. I found the section on Basics particularly helpful, since it includes step-by-step instructions as well as pictures for such baking standards as cutting butter into flour, melting chocolate, testing for doneness, and what whipped cream looks like when it's ready. There is even information on how to measure wet and dry ingredients that I think many adult bakers would appreciate!

My bet is that kids (okay, adults too!) will have a hard time choosing which of the delicious treats to make. There are sections for Cookies, Cakes & Cupcakes, Pies & Pastries, Simple Breads & Muffins, and Yeast Breads. Some of my favorites were Birthday Cake (this one contained the most photos – 13), S'mores Bars, Ice Cream Cake (while this is an advanced recipe, the instructions made it look doable), Puffy Apple Oven Pancake, and Elephant Ears (I was surprised how easy this is using frozen puff pastry).

One of the reasons Williams-Sonoma Kids Baking will appeal to young bakers is that the final product doesn't look perfect, like in many other cookbooks. Some of the sugar cookies have icing dripping off them, others have tons of sprinkles, so the message is that there's no right or wrong way to decorate. Everyone will appreciate the step-by-step photos, the range of easy to more challenging recipes, the photo glossary of kitchen items, and the glossary of terms. Simply put, this cookbook is a winner!
