I bought two of these books for my nieces for their birthdays (twins) so that they can learn to cook and each take turns in showing off there dish to the family. I thought by starting with rice they might like the idea of becoming good chefs by studing culinary arts. They both loved the book because it tells a story of how other people cook their rice, making the book fun and educational at the same time! They should make more books on cooking like these for young kids. I really think this is a great book for young kids to learn how to make something simple in the kitchen.

Of course, garlic still makes good food even better, and every great cook has a garlic press among their kitchen tools.
