MEDIA REVIEWS
"[O]ffers a unique glimpse into the personalities and culinary habits of more than 50 children's authors and the often astute observations of student writers....It is doubtful that any gourmet chefs will be born as a result of this compilation, but these young people promise to be wonderful writers themselves. Such a rich and sumptuous dialogue is substantial fare, a feast for hearts and minds." - School Library Journal
"This book is a new twist to a long-standing language arts strategy. Waltz put together a cookbook of authors and their favorite recipes to raise money for a children's literacy foundation. Students in her sixth grade class wrote to their favorite authors expressing their opinion of a classic book they read, and asked the author to send them their favorite recipe....The student and author letters are the most appealing to use in the classroom to motivate reading. Teachers can use the letters from students and authors to introduce books to their classes, show letter-writing examples, and discuss opinions of various books that will offer insight into how and why the author wrote the book. Other strategies could include math integration by making some of the recipes in class to practice measurement and to follow directions. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
