Other highlights: This book is flat-out adorable — I don't care how old you are. The pages are full of vibrant colors and lovable forest creatures: a chicken, a hedgehog, a wolf, and a cat, each representing the recipes from each season throughout the year. There's no narrative in the book, but lots of visual storytelling — I could definitely see my young niece paging through this picture book for hours, peering at each little drawing. The recipes definitely require some adult supervision and participation; they're the kinds of recipes to make (and hopefully eat!) together, rather than letting your toddler have free rein in the kitchen!
