"The world is full of exciting flavors, and once your kid is familiar with standard fare like tacos and lasagna, Cool World Cooking will introduce him to exciting new global fare. Take your child on a culinary adventure around the world as he learns to cook exotic dishes like groundnut stew and croque monsieur."

Daily Parent, "The 15 Best Cookbooks for Kids"

"This appealing introductory guidebook to global cuisine earns a place next to Deanna F. Cook and Michael P. Kline’s The Kid’s Multicultural Cookbook (Williamson, 1995) and Matthew Locricchio’s The 2nd International Cookbook for Kids (Marshall Cavendish, 2008). Children will relate to the easy-to-read instructions as well as the photos of their peers from around the world."

School Library Journal

"Most kids are excited about the opportunity to learn to cook, but it is often difficult to find kid-friendly recipes that have variety and interest to them. This book is a great answer for those deficits in the world of cooking for kids. ... Kids will enjoy creating their own tasty, healthy dishes. Parents will want to borrow this book for the easy, delicious recipes."
