Handstand Kids

This kiddie cook book is so much fun. When mine arrived in the mail, my kids could not wait to put on the little oven mitt that was included and they wanted to look at the book. I opened it up and was pleasantly surprised that they had a whole page of utensils that were in English and Spanish, and a whole page of ingredients that were translated as well. . I figured that we could make something so I looked through the recipes and figured that the apple taquitos sounded the best. It had a list of the ingredients and all of the utensils that we would need. The kids had so much fun being involved and they had even more fun eating the final product!

Handstand kids cookbooks are the perfect recipe for kids to learn how to cook, while discovering the people, places, and language of a new country. The second Handstand Kids cookbook in the series travels to Mexico to make delicious and nutritious Mexican recipes. Each book comes with an oven mitt, packaged in a tortilla bag.

Kids will learn how to cook simple, yet delicious Mexican dishes, while learning about the vibrant Mexican culture. Each book is packaged in a tortilla bag with an oven mitt. "Ingredients and utensils are translated in the intro so kid chefs get to learn Spanish," Handstand Kids Founder Yvette Garfield told TDmonthly

The Handstand Kids Mexican Cookbook was just named2008 Award WINNERS for Top Toy of the Year!

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that The Handstand Kids Cookbook Company will be releasing its third book, The Handstand Kids Chinese Cookbook, a part of the increasingly popular cookbook series. The Handstand Kids Chinese Cookbook features easy-to-learn recipes like: The Great Wall of Chicken Lettuce Wraps while learning about the Great Wall of China; and Kung Pow! (Kung Pao Tofu), showing the characters doing karate; and Chow Mein Long Life Noodles.

The Handstand Kids Cookbooks take value in educating children about the global culture of the food they are cooking-- The Handstand Kids Chinese Cookbook introduces readers to the Mandarin language and comes in an adorable takeout box with a pair of child-friendly chopsticks.

The books will be available for sale mid-April but I wanted to give you the heads up!
