Now that the weather is turning colder, I’ve started baking more often. And my three oldest are definitely ready to help out more in the kitchen. So I thought I’d look for some fun cookbooks for kids that would encourage them to want to learn how to cook.
Today I’m sharing 10 children’s cookbooks that are easy to use, full of pictures, and feature yummy recipes! After all, if the recipes aren’t good, the kids aren’t going to want to make them, are they?
If you and the kids enjoy these books, don’t miss our ideas for using a lapbook to teach kids to bake!

Thank you so much for sharing these – I want to cook more with my girls. They LOVE to cook with me and I see so much learning going on when they do. I need to make it more of a regular thing. They would so love the Disney princess cookbook!

I recently gave the Disney princess cookbook to my youngest daughter for her birthday and would you know that is the cookbook we use more than any other now?! We like nearly EVERY recipe in there and they are so easy and practical. I recently told some friends that was my favorite cookbook and they laughed. I said, “no really! Have you seen the pictures and the recipes in here? I wish they would make this cookbook for adults just without the princess stuff. It’s fabulous!” LOL. It’s still our favorite cookbook. 😉

Oh, these look like wonderful cookbooks! My kids love getting in the kitchen, but I haven’t given them their own cookbooks yet. Perhaps I should start with one of these. #LaughLearnLinkUP
