About the Book
It’s The Berenstain Bears' Country Cookbook! Bear lovers everywhere are sure to find favorite recipes for fun food in this new kid-friendly, cookbook—ranging from Bear favorites that use honey and berries to delicious main meals and breakfasts, and even Berenstain favorites like Jan Berenstain’s famous Green Lasagna.

Featuring breakfast, lunch, main meal, and dessert recipes as well as kid-friendly cooking tips such as food and measurement conversions, this is sure to become a go-to cookbook for delicious and fun recipes kids can cook with an adult.

About the Author
Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents, Stan and Jan, working together to write and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too.

My Take on the Book
I have always enjoyed reading the books written by the Berenstain family. When I saw the cookbook, I was eager to view the contents and see the layout.

Mike Berenstain has included recipes for breakfast, lunch, main dishes, desserts and sweets. He has a section with facts about honey, grace before meals, and kitchen measurements.

The book is colorful and easy to use. A color photograph is included with each food entry. They will make you hungry just looking at them. Some of the entries are quite creative, like the TASTY TOBOGGANS. This breakfast item is two pieces of cooked bacon set perpendicular on a plate, with a piece of French toast on top. 

Some of the recipes use a grocery store ingredient that will save you some time: like a box of scone mix for the scone recipe and the tube of refrigerated rolls for the bunny biscuits. Most of the recipes are made from "scratch" which will encourage your child to learn kitchen measurements.

The directions were well written and easy to follow. 

Before each major section, Mama or Papa Bear have a short narration for the adult and child doing the cooking.

I feel the recipes are healthy. I think you and your child will enjoy not only using the cookbook but eating the food you will prepare.
