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.
