    By Laura J. Colker

    Here is a book that invites teachers to the table—even those of us who don't see ourselves as cooks—to create tasty, wholesome projects with children. Young children certainly love to cook, and cooking experiences give them a chance to see a task through to completion and take pride in a product. As they prepare food, children learn social competence; science, math, and literacy skills; and the joy of creativity. Author Laura Colker has decades of experience cooking with children and teaching early childhood educators to do so.
