Minki's Stuff came up with this amazing idea to create a cookbook for children with the theme of dinosaurs. The book has a great collection of recipes. There are recipes for appetizers, main courses, desserts, and drinks. Each recipe has the name of a dinosaur. The recipes are accompanied by information about the dinosaurs that are mentioned in the recipes' names. If that got your interest, hurry up and get your copy of Jurassic Junior Chef: A Dinosaur Cookbook for Dino-Loving Kiddos by Minki's Stuff.

I adore everything about this book. Starting from the brilliant idea to the beautiful and colorful design. The recipes are clear and have all the required ingredients and steps. I liked how the recipes focused on including fruits and vegetables and healthy ingredients to encourage kids to eat them. I also like how the book starts with the necessary precautions for the children before starting to cook. The variety of the recipes makes them applicable. I just think the portions of ingredients were more than necessary, especially for children to handle. I suggest using smaller amounts.

There was nothing to hate about this book. I appreciate the idea and the joy that comes out of it. I believe it can turn into a series with different themes. I thought attaching photos of each dinosaur and each meal would have been a good addition. The book received professional editing. I could only notice a couple of errors. Therefore, I rate this book five out of five stars. The book is directed at children aged 8 to 12. The writer encouraged them to start cooking on their own. I find that nice, but I also believe this can be a wonderful bonding activity between parents and their children. That can even include a younger age segment. I guarantee a pleasant experience either way.

Thank you for your delightful and informative review Your love of the idea, design, and variety of the recipes has made me excited to get my own copy of this book to try it out. Your note regarding the portions of ingredients and the suggestion to use smaller amounts was of great help, and I appreciate your attention to detail. I agree that this book would be excellent for parents looking to bond with their children while cooking and could even be applicable for younger age segments, as you mentioned. Your suggestion to add photos of each dinosaur and each meal was interesting and would aid in visualizing the outcome. I look forward to reading more of your reviews and recommendations in the future!

The review was informative. The concept of the book is brilliant. To put a dinosaur themed cookbook is a definite winner but the writer seems to have done a great job with the recipes too. Looking forward to read this one.

Your review illustrated the significance of children succeeding with cooking. I loved how you specified why you gave the book a perfect rating and the age appropriation. Nicely done, and I am looking forward to reading this book and sharing it with my nephews and niece.
