The Berenstain Bears’ Holiday Cookbook by Mike Berenstain is a totally awesome cookbook to use when cooking or baking with children. The book is broken up into 6 sections, Valentine’s Day, Easter, Fourth of July, Fall Festivities, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Each section has six to eight recipes geared just for that time of year. The recipes consist of snacks, desserts drinks and meal options. Some of the recipes are what children can do by them selves but most are for helping a parent.
This is such a nice book! I wish I had it when my children were little. But I am looking forward to using it with my grandchildren. This is a hard covered book with shinny paper pages. I appreciate the cute stories, that start with a bible verse to correspond with the holiday, at the beginning of each section in which the bears talk about their favorite foods. Many of the meal options are recipes that are used year round, such as potatoes, salads, soups and sandwiches. This is a book that could quickly become the “go to” cookbook that will help develop a life time of traditions for families. The book is published for ages 4 – 8 years of age, but I feel it would be equally fun for all ages. Anyone who has grown up with the Berestain Bears will have fun with this book.
I received a copy of this book from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
