Kids' Cookbook For My Granddaughter?

Will Owen | Oct 10, 201304:01 PM

She's five years old, reads at second-grade level, and has been cooking for a little over a year. Her mom is teaching her knife skills now (which mine never did!). I want to find a children's cookbook, preferably at third or even fourth-grade level, since her reading ability will only accelerate and I don't want the book to get left behind too soon. The recipes should be interesting and a bit challenging, concentrating on fresh ingredients rather than boxed or canned - I'll teach her our tuna-noodle casserole in due time! - and of course well-written. I've got a query in to Powell's Books, and I'll ask at Vroman's here in Pasadena too, but I thought it'd be a good move to throw the question out here. Her family is omnivorous and they live in Nashville.
