I bought this for my boy a few years ago and he loves it. He can now follow the recipes and loves to cook them. I've since bought this as a present for other children. The recipes are well laid out with pictures, they are not too complicated. We love the farmyard tales and this book is just a lovely colourful book ideal as a childrens cookbook. Would definately recommend. The spiral bound book is easy to open and use and the pages are wipe clean.
