Format: Board book
Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 4.5
What did you like about the book? It’s time to bake! A little girl is going to show her little brother how. Aprons, big bowl, measuring cups, spoons and ingredients. Very expressive digitally created watercolor illustrations accompanied by very large bold typeface create a very endearing story. There are illustrations on nearly every page. Their large size in this board book creates toddler appeal. Included are recipes for chocolate cupcakes, vanilla cupcakes and vanilla frosting. (Mommy puts the cakes in and takes the cakes out the oven.)
Anything you did not like about this book? No.
To whom would you recommend this book? It would be really fun if a child were baking with a parent to read it while the cupcakes are baking.
Who should buy this book? Public libraries and day-cares
Where would you shelve it? Board books or picture books
Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No, but sweet
