Gr 1-6--The 13-to-14 recipes in each volume are easy to make, require accessible ingredients and prepared foods, and cover a variety of categories, from drinks ("Warm Cranberry Punch") to dessert ("Baked Stuffed Apples"). They're also wholesome without calling a lot of attention to that fact; they're packed full of fruits and vegetables, fiber, and sugar substitutes such as honey and agave nectar. Bright, seasonally appropriate palettes and sharp, color images of food and ingredients give the books an appealing, modern look. The "Healthy Tips" section at the end of every title offers additional ways for readers to make their culinary creations delicious and nutritious. The syntax is occasionally stilted, with many simple sentences and few transitions, but this is not much of an issue given that the bulk of the writing here is instructional.[Page 110].
