Book Description: Want to learn how cupcakes are made?

A great start for beginning bakers, Chef Joey's Cupcake Creation brings fun and innovation to the children's kitchen. Happy Baking!
My Review: Ah! The adventure of baking. This interactive book brings the young reader to the heart of a baker's palace-The Kitchen.
The reader meets Chef Joey as a baby and then we skip a few years ahead to an older Chef Joey walking down a grocery store aisle. This is where children learn what ingredients go into a cake mix. The ingredients for a sweet treat are included in this read. Then on to mixing, baking and icing the treat. The sweet treat that the reader learns to make is a chocolate cupcake! Yum! for a neat treat that I can make by myself!
Cupcake facts are also included at the end of this read. My favorite fact is: "Cupcakes were named because they are a small cake that is the same size as a teacup." Makes one feel like having a cup of tea to go with that wonderful cupcake.
Children ages 6-10 are going to like this fun 5 star read. The illustrations are cute, colorful and full of energy. The process of buying ingredients, mixing and baking are great for a family adventure of learning!
This is a sturdy book so young ones can follow the recipe and then if the book is dribbled on it can be wiped off.
This is one of those books that makes a wonderful gift for a young.to.be.chef. And included in the purchase of this book is a free audio book digital download posted at the very end of the book.
