Calling all fans of the wonderful, whimsical world of Dr. Seuss! Families and foodies alike will adore this cookbook that’s specifically designed to get kids and parents cooking (and laughing!) together in the kitchen.
Featuring 50 recipes inspired by the fanciful works of Dr. Seuss, Cook It! The Dr. Seuss Cookbook for Kid Chefs will have you and your kids whipping up wild Seussical concoctions like Star-Belly Peaches, Roast Beast with Grinchy Citrus Sauce, and Warm Whisked Wocket Waffles. In true Dr. Seuss fashion, the text is written partially in rhyme, which makes this one as much fun to read as it is to cook from. Not only that, but classic illustrations from some of Dr. Seuss’ most beloved books and colorful Seuss-inspired food photographs provide a visual treat as well.
The Dr. Seuss cookbook makes it a snap for parents to find age- and skill-level-appropriate recipes to cook with their kids, as it’s organized by the cooking skills required. The Cat Hat Parfait, for example, alternates layers of berries, yogurt, and honey until it resembles the recognizable red and white stripes of — you guessed it — the Cat in the Hat’s signature chapeau.
“I know a game, a game that is yummy. All we need now is some yogurt and honey. Strawberries help, and a tall, empty glass. And now let’s begin our Striped-Hat-Making class,” reads the accompanying rhyme. “We’ll build one and eat it in five minutes flat. You’ll see, it’s delicious . . . or I’ll eat my hat!”
Whether you’re a diehard fan of Dr. Seuss, a parent wanting to experience some quality kitchen time with your budding chef, or anywhere in between, this is one cookbook to add to your book-nook.
