Do your kids like to cook?
My kids have always loved to cook. When they were very little they helped me make things and did simple cooking tasks, but now they are all getting older they love the independence of grabbing a cookbook and making something on their own.
We have a small collection of well loved kid’s cookbooks, and a long list of cookbooks we’d love to own.
If your kids like to cook, they might like some of these cookbooks for kids.
