Beelicious Recipes With Honey... out now!

Due to be launched this Sunday (22nd April) and out in your favourite bookshops NOW; a great new cookery book for young children by author Dolores Keaveney (If I Were a Bee and Jenny, the Little Brown Hen) from Mullingar. I was privileged to receive a preview copy and have an early look at Beelicious Recipes With Honey. It's simply delightful in every way, and very useful both to help develop an active interest in healthy eating (and cooking!) in children and in teaching children of all ages about that wonderful, productive and incredibly necessary insect friend; the honeybee. I thoroughly recommend this lovely new cookery book for children... every household should have one!
Here's my review:

"There’s no doubt about it. Children love to cook. This beautiful new cookery book is just the thing to introduce cooking into their lives. Colourful and joyful illustrations take the whole family on a journey through the kitchen with simple, clear recipes for scones, pancakes, cakes and smoothies that even the youngest can make and enjoy. All made with honey! This book isn’t only a ‘how-to’, though. It is chocked full of interesting information about one of our worlds’ most valuable creatures; the honey bee.  We’ve tried a few of them here at home and I’ve got to tell you, the results are satisfying and delicious!
Easy to make, even easier to eat, bright and happy; Beelicious: Recipes With Honey is more than a welcome addition to your cookery book collection. It’s a book that will generate an active interest in nutrition and environment and will promote family togetherness."
