OFFICIAL AMERICAN GIRL COOKBOOK: The trusted partner for families who want to raise strong, confident girls and help girls discover their sense of self
"The inclusion of American Girl characters of different religious and ethnic backgrounds is a strong point. Some of the recipes evoke their strong cultural ties, such as Rebecca Ruben’s Potato Latkes and Josefina Montoya’s Mexican Wedding Cookies. Ranging in difficulty, the recipes do not indicate length of prep and cooking/baking time, so careful reading of instructions is a must." --- School Library Journal
