Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 5 Up-Taking a resolutely hands-on approach, these two titles explore the ins and outs of, respectively, baking and basic auto upkeep. Each book features a simple plot and a lively, diverse cast headed by an adult instructor. In Bake Like a Pro, apprentice wizard Sage learns from "alchemist and baking master" Korian (and an array of talking ingredients) how to make yummy baked goods, from chocolate chip cookies to cheddar biscuits to sponge cake, as well as the chemical processes that mixing and heating expedite, plus several tricks of the trade. In Fix a Car, several students gather once a week with their teacher Ms. Gritt for an informal Car Club. In addition to learning about the major components of their cars and the essential tools to keep handy, the kids practice changing a tire, cleaning their vehicles inside and out, jump-starting a stalled engine, and more. In both volumes, bright cartoon art consists of figures standing around and talking animatedly, but it's arranged in easy-to-follow sequential panels and only seldom looks squeezed by the narrative. Both entries kick off with safety notes and end with useful back matter: full recipes, side notes, and conversion tables in Bake; recommended repair manuals to keep on hand in Fix. VERDICT Offering challenging but realistically doable projects and specific explanations of background chemical and physical principles, these engaging guides will leave no wrench or spatula safe from middle and high school students (not to mention more intrepid grade schoolers).-John Peters, Children's Literature Consultant, New Yorkα(c) Copyright 2011.

Review

"[I] was surprised by how much I learned and how much fun I had while doing it... Bake Like A Pro! strikes a balance in presenting us with enough of the science behind baking without having it feel overwhelming." ―The Beat

"Offering challenging but realistically doable projects and specific explanations of background chemical and physical principles, these engaging guides will leave no wrench or spatula safe from middle and high school students (not to mention more intrepid grade schoolers)." ―School Library Journal

"Koch delivers charmingly even as she illustrates loads of baking procedures and anthropomorphized ingredients clearly and specifically." ―
Booklist

5.0 out of 5 stars Any Hands-on Kid Will Love This
Reviewed in the United States on June 25, 2021
How does this book have only 29 reviews? It is fantastic! Got my 11-year old son to the grocery store with me to buy ingredients, which he got on his own while I picked up a prescription. He chose to make the lemon meringue from the back of the book. We both learned along the way (I accidentally had us over-whip the meringue and it came out lumpy) but enjoyed doing it.
The bulk of the book is a loose story line of wizards being assigned different specialties (the one assigned baking feels like it will be boring and not very magic-y) with the logic of baking practices laid out—different methods of mixing similar ingredients in different ways to achieve certain characteristics, as well as things like how and why gluten forms. What makes it so engaging, I think, is that the main character starts out clueless, like us, but ends up more confident, like us. (Also every ingredient, even the molecules of ingredients, have little adorable faces and can speak)
It’s a fairly quick read, packed densely enough that I wanted to read it bits at a time over a day or two. There are only ten recipes, but nine of them are carefully discussed in the within the comic itself.
They are not little-kid basic recipes, they are regular cookbook recipes that will need help and supervision. (I also appreciate that the book points out the need to wash your hands before cooking anything.)
Now my other son, a 9-year old, has picked it up and is picking out a recipe.
All around, a great confidence-builder in the kitchen.
