Bought this book thinking it would show me a little more about bentoing, but it's not. This book is all about making sandwiches into different shapes. So if you are into turning sandwiches into different shapes for your kids then it's an awesome book. Hope this helps since you can't search inside the book. The book also has great illustrations.
I swear this (and the Australian women's weekly birthday cake book sent by grandma) are always out of the cookbook bookshelf - my three year old and her preschool friends pour over it like it is a fashion (or girlie) magazine. They like to choose which one they want to have when they come over to our place for lunch - they even have a voting system. When we teach preschool here (we homeschool preschool) we always have a themed lunch to match the daily unit of study and this book is the gold standard. We've introduced Kid chef, and they are now keen to make their own "funky lunches" (they even use that term). It's really cool thanks!
If not for anything, it's fun to read. Easy recipes and one of my faves to go back to for ideas to get my toddlers to munch! This is one of the best English Bento books on the market, and trust me: I own MANY!
And they were cute! I am making bento boxes with my 6th graders. It is a way to being culture into making a sandwich and allowing the kids to express their creativity. The pictures in this book are fun and most of the design are within the grasp of the 6th graders I am working with.
for Prime customers... this really is not an Prime book, so don't expect it in 1-2 days...it's more like 4-6 days.The PICTURES are amazing... great to look at. But in reality this is something to do at home and not in a school lunch box. I love looking at the book with my children and we try to recreate, but it just doesn't work out. an example you ask? the 'dairy delights' is a sandwich made to look like a cow, ingredients listed : white and brown bread, sandwich filling, cucumber and ham. looks dead easy, but this the 7 steps you take to create it. 1, place 2 slices of wholemeal bread together and cut out the shape of the head excluding the ears.(note from me : I can't create a cow shaped head on a piece of paper let alone with Bread!)2. with the top slice of wholemeal, cut away the centre (europena Centre, not american center!) section leaving 2 side areas for the eyes. 3. blah, blah, blah.... oooh nice picture though! I would love nothing more than this book to work for food, however I think if they made it work for felt arts and crafts it would sell out like ice-cream (page 17 in funky lunch... which would also look better in felt!).
What fun it is to see a child's eyes light up when they open their lunch box in front of other children, that has such wonderful surprises in it for them to eat. YES would recommend to any parent that loves to make their child smile.
My 4 year old loves taking these lunches to school. Easy to follow directions and pictures- not super fast, but they are all cute. Happy with the purchase and have recommended to several friends and family.
