    • Marketing Copy

      Description
      Filled with fascinating facts delivered visually, this infographic book explores the topic of food from every aspect. Written for middle-grade readers, Eat Up! is a colorful infographic look at the many surprising and fascinating facts about food. Information is presented in easy-to-understand graphics and clear explanations. Each spread explores a different aspect of the topic. Readers will find answers to a wide range of questions, including: Who grows our food? Where does our meat and fish come from? How does it get to us? What’s the difference between a hybrid and a genetically-modified crop? How do companies advertize to children? Who are the “Big 10” food companies? How much farmland is there across the world? Weightier topics (for example, farming and pollution, or child labor in agriculture), are balanced out by fun facts, such as “extreme foods” and how our sense of taste works (and sometimes deceives us). Other topics include how food production has an impact on the local and global economy, access to food and food insecurity around the world, and conventional vs. organic farming. Vibrant, dynamic illustrations, diagrams and photos and small chunks of text make this book ideal for reluctant or struggling readers.

      “What do we like more than homemade goodies? When kids can make 'em themselves! The new book Baking Class helps them do just that with cute ideas and step-by-step how-tos perfect for any aspiring chef.” — FamilyFun

      “What's the phrase – kid-tested, mother-approved? Two years ago, my then-9-year-old worked her way through Cooking Class, Deanna F. Cook's previous book, with little to no intervention from me. This year's charmer has been the same story. It's a teach-yourself-to-bake book with vast kid appeal, thanks to big step-by-step photos, clear instructions and adorable, easy recipes (cranberry orange scones, teeny tiny apple pies, sugar cookies, macaroons). At the back are stickers, labels and – be still my beating heart – stencils so that you can sugar-powder your cookies into art.” — T. Susan Chang, NPR's Best Books of 2017

      "Spiral-bound, with glossy, easy-to-clean covers, these cookbooks are bright and colorful, with recipes that range in difficulty from very easy (mug cake, salad dressing) to more complicated (crepes, spring rolls). They are perfect for children who want a thorough introduction to the kitchen, including basic rules for safety, vocabulary, setting a table and — you’re going to love this, parents — cleaning up. They are written for children ages 8 to 12, but again, younger ones will find something for them here, too." — New York Times

      “Roll up your sleeves and get out the oven mitts for Baking Class: 50 Fun Recipes Kids Will Love to Bake! This colorful, spiral-bound guide, presented by the aptly named kids' cookbook writer Deanna F. Cook, features easy instructions paired with helpful pictures. There are eye-catching recipes for crispy cheese squares (think Cheez-Its) and brownie pizza, plus adorable bread art (bake an octopus or a snail) and cake and cookie decorating ideas, all rated for difficulty using a scale of one to three rolling pins. Who knew you could put designs and initials on toast using foil shields? A section on the basics gets young bakers started, and additional bonuses include stickers, bake-sale tags and design stencils to use with confectioner's sugar.” — BookPage

      “This colorful baking guide offers detailed illustrated directions to help kids make a wide range of baked goods, including muffins, breads, cookies, scones, biscuits, pies, cakes, and cupcakes. Color photos accompany each step of every recipe, as well as several pages of baking basics that introduce common cooking terms, safety tips, and tools. The recipes are rated with one, two, or three rolling pins to indicate their level of difficulty. Along with the 50 recipes, the book features sidebars and extra pages of cooking tips and variations. For example, the recipe for “Silly Sticks” includes a sidebar that describes five other easy ways to use puff pastry, and the “Sweet and Simple Sugar Cookie” recipe is followed by four pages of decorating ideas and tips. While most of the recipes require the use of an oven, a few, such as “A Toast to You,” can be made in a toaster oven, or in the case of the flour-free “Cocoa Cake in a Mug,” even the microwave. The book also includes a table of contents and an index for handy reference. VERDICT This attractive and well-organized baking guide for kids will make a nice addition to most nonfiction collections, and a good gift for young baking enthusiasts.” — School Library Journal

      “Highly visual, photographing each step along the way to creating crispy cheese squares and “dig in the dirt” pie (chocolate ice cream topped with cookie crumbs, painted candy ladybugs, and gummy worms, and frozen overnight).” — Publishers Weekly

      “Crammed full of joy and fun, this cookbook teaches kids baking fundamentals while they whip up their favorite treats. The only way this book could be better is if it did the cleanup, too!” — Stacie Billis, author of One Hungry Mama and Make It Easy
