My youngest daughter is 4 and she loves to help me in the kitchen.  I would love to find a cookbook for her so that she would feel more involved and foster her love of cooking.  Any suggestions?

Hi, What i have done is get a photo album and ask the kids (my son and 3 grand kids) to tell me what they love to eat, we wrote or printed the recipe and drew pictures of the way they saw the food looking.  We also decorate each album with our pictures or anything they liked, I use the small albums because they were three of them.  Then once a wk or on the wknd they took turn cooking, they were so proud of them self.

You can get her or make her a chef hat and an apron.  Google cooking tools for kids the have lot's of nice cute items kids size.
