5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!!!, 20 May 2009
This review is from: Eddie's Kitchen: and How to Make Good Things to Eat (Hardcover)
This is such a lovely, warm-hearted book about a family - reminds me of the Shirley Hughes Alfie books. It's the story of a hectic day in a family kitchen when mum realises she's forgotten grandad's birthday and spends the afternoon cooking some lovely food for his party with Eddie, who looks around 5, and Lily, who looks around 2.

If you don't enjoy cooking with your children, don't buy this book as it's all about what a lovely activity this is and will raise your children's expectations of joining in with everything in the kitchen, and it even has recipes at the end, but if you do enjoy cooking together (or would like to try), you'll love this book. I also like the fact that it assumes children will eat and enjoy good home-cooked food.

I don't want to make it sound like it portrays an over-idyllic, unrealistic version of life as this is definitely a normal family - they get messy & stressed, the phone and doorbell ring at the wrong time, they run out of ingredients and they just look like normal people. It's not clear if it's about a single parent - could be read either way, which is nice.

My children love it and find it funny and I enjoy reading it to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful, 20 July 2010

This review is from: Eddie's Kitchen: and How to Make Good Things to Eat (Hardcover)
This is such a great book. My little boy aged 6 has had me read it over and over and has also made all the lovely food from the recipes at the back. This is going to sound horribly victorian but Eddie, the hero, is a very sensible, helpful little boy and a wonderful example to little boys everywhere. My own little lad, who idolises Eddie can often be prevailed upon to behave like Eddie when all else fails.

This review is from: Eddie's Kitchen: and How to Make Good Things to Eat (Hardcover)
Really loved this book and it inspired me to get the other one about Eddie's garden. My toddler loves cooking and now he talks about having a party every time we cook something together. Love it.
