So while this book had some of the features I hoped for in [b:Cooking Is Cool|16057093|Cooking Is Cool Heat-Free Recipes for Kids to Cook|Marianne E. Dambra|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1367340201s/16057093.jpg|21843003], such as lots of pictures of kids in the process of making the specific recipes, it was a pretty generic book of cookies and cakes. Cooking is Cool had the whole idea of 'no oven needed' to separate it as a different kind of book, and it really seemed like almost every one of the recipes could be handled by kids without an adult intervening. Anytime the oven is involved, there's a need for hands-on as the adult. Which is fine. Lewis clearly notes how cooking together is one of the big ideas behind a kids' book. The recipes are clearly marked to show which ones might work best for new cooks, which would be a good way to identify which ones a kid might try alone, too.
