B is for Best Ever Birthday Book Review

***This post contains affiliate links***

I was lucky enough recently, to win a copy of the new book by Louise Fulton Keats,    

What a wonderful idea for a children's party cookbook.  The first part of the book contains a story of a young girl, her little brother, their dog and their grandma trying to decide what type of birthday party the girl should have to make it the best birthday ever- fairy, dinosaur, space, circus, picnic or little chefs.  The rhyming text is fun to read a loud and takes the reader on a journey through each of the birthday themes .  The illustrations are a great combination of drawings and photographs and add to the cheerfulness of the story.

The second part of the book contains recipes for each of the birthday themes. Ranging from chocolate meteoroids for the space party to chicken Waldorf sandwiches for the picnic party the recipes are suitable for children and provide some alternatives to the standard party food as well as some regular favourites.  There is also a party cake or cupcakes suggestion for each theme.

I would definitely recommend getting this book if your child would like to help you plan their next birthday party.  Bear and Bee were both entranced by the story and keen to look through the recipes and choose something for their upcoming 3rd birthday.  We aren't having a big party this year - I think we will go with one every 2 years.  But grandma and grandad are coming to visit so we still have some guests to prepare party food for. Bear has chosen the Raspberry jellies and Bee wants to make the Star biscuits.  Keep a watch out for my next post on these two recipes.

And a great big happy birthday to my two princesses.

What party food does your child like to help make?
