The Kids' Multicultural Cookbook
Food & Fun Around the WorldBook - 1995
For ages 4 to 8 years. A festive medley of recipes, customs, activities, games, and more, this book offers parents and educators fun-filled ways to immerse youngsters in ethnic diversity. Decorated with black-and-white illustrations and photos, the text is divided into five geographic areas: Asia, Europe, Africa and the Middle East, the Americas, and the South Pacific. Surprisingly, many of the recipes that sound intriguing, such as ox-eye eggs from Indonesia, turn out to be familiar dishes with unfamiliar names. But the foods aren't the real reason to add this to a collection. Rather, it's the selection of wonderfully creative ideas for theme parties -- for example, a backyard tropical beach party -- and the interesting sidebars alerting kids to kitchen safety, fun facts, and cultural clues that make the book stand out.
