I did not know it was International Childrens Day...What a wonderful way to celebrate..I love each country that you posted, as there is so much to read about I will have to come back 2 or 3 times.. Looks like a great cookbook! Thanks for sharing, I will be back to read more..Blessings on this Wednesday, Dottie :)

Pam said...

Love it!

Mae Travels said...

Children's cookbooks from the past seem to be an interesting reflection of what people thought children could do in the kitchen. And international cookbooks from the past also have a lot of cultural baggage about how we saw "others." So this is a very interesting combination of those trends. Your collections seem endless!

What a lovely book, love the illustrations....love them all, but my favourite is the Zaire one...love the hens and the chickens...celebrating children's day is a big one in India....just curious did they have a recipe from India, if they did what was that? Cheers, Suchi

~~louise~~ said...

Thank you Suchi. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I updated this post just now to include a recipe from India. Thank you so much for asking:)

How do you keep up with all these special days, Louise? I didn't know this was International Children's Day. I'm reminded of the book "How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World." This looks like a very interesting book for children! Nellie

It was fun choosing Pam...

~~louise~~ said...

I was thinking the same thing, Mae as I was choosing images to share. I have always found cookbooks as a way of reflecting on times past.

~~louise~~ said...

Thank YOU, Suchi, it was my pleasure:)

Hi Louise,
This is a delightful post! I especially like the guava jelly, I have seen recipes using guava jelly and am rather curious about it as have not seen it before. Perhaps I should make my own one of these days!
Beautiful book with beautiful illustrations!

~~louise~~ said...

I have a calendar Nellie! I showed it to my grandkids the last time they were here and they really enjoyed it.

Graham Cracker Cake is really a treat Grace. You should try it one day:)

I had no idea there was a day to celebrate children from all over. i think it is very important and will hopefully help spread piece between children. Thank you for sharing. I love the images you included.

Storybook Woods said...

Sweet illustrations and great recipes. Just the kind of book my girls would love when they were young. Clarice

Marjie said...

Any way to get children to cook is good. What an adorable book you have there. Have you let the grandkids get their mitts on it yet? You might not get it back!

Catherine said...

Dear Louise, I love children's cookbooks!! I loved some of the recipes I found using the children's books I bought her when she was little.
These are wonderful. Blessings and Happy Thanksgiving dear. Catherine xo

lena said...

i love the drawings, they are all so cute and a crustless spinach pie sounds lovely!

Amelia said...

Hi Louise, very interesting cookbooks, those recipes are really wonderful. Your postings are very unique, you always share alots of vintage articles and books which many I have not seen or heard off. Great job, well done!

Have a nice weekend.

~~louise~~ said...

Yes Anne, we sure do have a lot of celebrations here in the states. I try to cover them all at one time or another, lol...

~~louise~~ said...

Thank you so much Rosa...

~~louise~~ said...

I hope so, Candy:)

~~louise~~ said...

It really is a wonderful book for the kids, Nee. My grandkids were too little the last time they were here but I'll be showing them all the kids cookbooks I have when they come in the Summer. although, I already gave Noah his Star Wars Cookbook, lol...

~~louise~~ said...

I don't think I have ever had Guava Jelly either, Joyce. You make the jelly and I'll be the tester, lol...

~~louise~~ said...

Thank you, Uru. I'm so glad you enjoyed your visit.

Sorry to hear about your subscribers. I better check my subscription.

~~louise~~ said...

Welcome Lady Lilith,

I'm so glad you enjoyed this post. do stop by anytime, Louise

~~louise~~ said...

I can't wait to shre this book with the grandkids, Clarice. They were too little the last time they saw it.

~~louise~~ said...

I totally agree, Marjie. It really is a cool book and no, the kids haven't gotten their mitts on it yet. They will this Summer though:)

~~louise~~ said...

They are very difficult to find, Catherine but whenever I can, I try to buy them. The recipes may seem childish but they are usually enticing to the kids.

A very Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving to you and yours Catherine. It's been quite the year:)

~~louise~~ said...

I had my eye on that crustless spinach pie too, Lena. I'll let you know if I try it:)

~~louise~~ said...

I am so glad you enjoy your visits, Amelia. I love sharing my cookbook collection online. How else would anyone get to see them? You are very sweet with your words, thank you:)
