About the author:
Jacque Wick was born in Denver Colorado. She studied education at Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida, and later came back to Denver where she studied computer science at Colorado Women’s college. She then worked in the computer science field. She later met and married her husband.
Tragedy stuck as Jacque’s husband died at a young age. She then began her life as a single mom to a toddler and baby. She developed and sold teaching materials to schools and retail outlets. She was recognized through Scottsdale Women’s News as a pioneer of her time building a home business to stay home with her children. Jacque moved to Texas to be closer to her aging father. For over ten years Jacque taught children alongside selling her educational materials.
Two of her greatest gifts were her two children left to her from her husband. Recently Jacque became a grandmother. She lives in Arizona with her little dog Kanga.

 FROM Reidhead Randomness:
Healthy and Fun Recipes That Kids Can Make was very fun for my daughter (age 6).  The recipes are healthy, and everything is depicted with children doing ALL the cooking. The recipes in this book are easy and inexpensive to make. They use common ingredients, and most seem like the kids would actually like them.  

This cookbook is broken down into seven parts (by color).  Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue & Purple, Brown, and "rainbow". There is also a section that has "teaching" help them learn about the foods, kitchen safety, list making, etc.  It has lots of helpful tips and techniques.

It is a beautiful hard back book with gorgeous pictures and even better recipes.  I love that the recipes are healthy, easy for kids, and tasty!  I also love that they are color coordinated.  

This is a great teaching tool to help your kids in the early stages of their cooking adventure.

Thanks to Cedar Fort for providing me a copy of this book to review.  All opinions expressed are my own.
