Cooking can be a delicious learning experience for children.

Cooking Is Cool makes all of this hands-on learning possible without stepping foot in the kitchen. These classroom-friendly recipes are all heat-free, meaning they can be made without an oven, stove, microwave, or hot plate. With your guidance, budding chefs can follow the easy instructions to transform fresh, simple ingredients into tasty snacks, beverages, entrees, and treats.

This book includes

  • More than 50 heat-free recipes that are fun to make and taste great
  • An explanation of the learning that occurs as children cook
  • Tips to create your own classroom cooking center
  • Nutrition information, extension ideas, and interesting food facts

Heat Free and Beautiful
I just received my copy and my first reaction was.... 
"Oh, it's so pretty!" Then I started reading and
checking it out in detail. I love the cover and the graphics, 
and how well organized and clear the format is. Great 
large photos! Fun recipes. The heat free aspect is 
wonderful for busy teachers and childcare people. 
Marianne Dambra and Redleaf have given us a 
wonderful resource. I can't say enough about it.
This will be a huge benefit to anyone with children
in any venue.

We love this book!
We love this book! I have two daughters, ages 4 and 6, 
who are always eager to help in the kitchen. 
We have had so much fun trying several of the recipes
 and the book suggestions add another element of fun. 
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants 
easy recipes to follow that will help introduce cooking to kids!

I can't tell you how excited I am that somebody finally made a cookbook that lets children actually prepare the food themselves instead of just watching. Children love to cook, and I am thrilled to be using Cooking Is Cool at our center!
Review by: Bianca Affronti, Preschool Teacher, Pea Pods Child Care Center - February 19, 2013
We love the book and have tried all the recipes. Not only do they taste delicious, but they are easy and fun for the kids to make, too! They ask me all the time to make the fairytale punch.
Review by: Brooke Nicholson, Pre-kindergarten teacher - February 14, 2013
It's not always convenient to use an oven while working in child care, but with this book I can make healthy, fun, and easy snacks all the time. I have tried some of the recipes with my kids, and they loved making them and then eating what they made. This book provides great ways to spend time with kids.
Review by: Colleen Moynihan, Owner, Pea Pods Child Care Center - February 2, 2013
I find the book very exciting. It has a great variety of cooking activities that engage the children, and it is very simple to plan for each. I love that the photographs provide a glimpse of what the recipes will look like. I would recommend this book to early childhood educators and parents.

Cooking is Cool makes preparing and enjoying food with children a breeze! All recipes are heat-free, and having sampled some, I can vouch for the delicious recipes and their artful presentations. Cooking is Cool is perfectly suited to young cooks in classrooms, child care settings, or homes. I like that the food presentations are artfully pleasing to children. I especially like the little "Did You Know" information boxes, offering such facts like, "Did you know humans are the only animals to peel a banana from the stem end?" Marianne E. Dambra has perfected heat-free cooking for kids and made the learning experiences as important as the yummy results! I highly recommend Cooking is Cool for kids to enjoy learning through cooking.
