Picture Me Cooking

Picture_Me_Cooking The first children’s book to combine a cookbook, photo album and activity book all in one! Cook along with your children, take photos of who they cook with and what they create, then slide photos in the provided pockets and you have an heirloom in the making!

Picture Me Cooking is perfect for kids of any age.  Each recipe has a full color photo to help encourage kids to make the dish and every recipe page has a photo pocket to slide in the photos you take. The book contains 54 family friendly recipes.
One very special feature is the Family Section of the book. It's where you can have your loved ones handwrite in cherished family recipes to pass on in a safe and protected spot to the next generation - Years later when folks look back they will just adore having those family favourites in the handwriting of loved ones.
The book has many other treats as well, like Did You Know's and Fun Facts about food and more as well as a multifaceted measuring chart easy for kids to understand.
Cooking with your children is a wonderful way to build memories and spend quality time together.  And to top it off, it is an excellent homeschool opportunity as well.  Why?  Simple because while cooking, your children learn reading, math, science, organizational skills and so much more.
My own kids have participated to cooking class at a local grocery store near my house.  They started in the little hands class where I need to be there and my two oldest are now in the older class where they cook without my presence.     They love the classes and can’t wait to participate to more of them.
Whenever possible we involve them in the cooking at the house.   Recently they observed while mom and dad discovered the joy of making jam for the first time.    My oldest son sometimes ask for permission to cook the supper by himself – he is 9 years old.
I find cooking to be a life skill that all children should learn so that they can cook by themselves when they left home.
The Picture Me cooking book is fantastic and very innovative. 
You can won two copies of Picture Me Cooking by participating to a contest.   Check it out by clicking on the image below.
