Kids Cookbooks for Younger Chefs (under 12)

For younger chefs they love to look through cookbooks with lots of pictures and pick out something that interests them or attracts their eye. For preschoolers up to school age, pictures are very important in children's cookbooks. This age group either can't read or are just beginning to read. So seeing the picture helps them know what the recipe will look like.

For a reading and cooking experience, try adding a cookbook to go with a chapter book in our reader's cook with books section.

Or for younger children try tying in a picture book with your cooking section.

Best Teenage Cookbooks

For teens it is great for them to have cookbooks that they can look through and create real meals as well as snacks or desserts. So look for a basic how to cook book that will help them, as well as ideas on what to fix for meals.

This is a great age for kids to start collecting their favorite recipes and creating a cookbook of their own.
