Each recipe is well-organized. Recipes are rated on a difficulty scale (from one to three little chefs hats); recipes label if a knife, microwave, stovetop, and or oven are needed (or if no knives or heat are required for the particular recipe); and recipes start first with prepare ingredients and gather cooking equipment even before the start cooking.
The first chapter on getting stared in the kitchen has excellent and well-organized information such as 4 secrets to success in the kitchen (with several excellent bullet points), decoding kitchenspeak (explaining the meaning of words like peel, zest, mince, toss, and much more), an explanation of how to to season to taste, an explanatory list of pantry staples, how to measure (with both word and picture guides!), 7 essential prep steps (such as how to crack and separate eggs, how to melt butter, and how to mince garlic), how to garnish and plate, and a colorful picture guide to all the basic kitchen equipment. Its just like any informative ATK book, but with more pictures and kid-friendly! And like any other ATK book, this one includes equipment testing and results--but this time for kids.

With its straightforward but visually appealing layout, young chefs will be able to make anything from more familiar comfort food (like blueberry muffins and tortilla chips) to the creative and advanced (like a caprese panini, shredded chicken tacos, or a kale-pineapple smoothie.) Kids can get inspired and motivated to cook for themselves and for others. Every recipe has a short review or comment from a child who helped test and develop the recipe.
Additionally, this book recommends both safe handling practices and asking an adult for help, while still practicing growing independence. For example, there is a recipe called french toast for one (with notes on how to easily double it and make it french toast for two). Chapter 3: Cooking for You features sandwiches, soups, and other quick fixes for lunch or dinner on your own.
