He shared how his daughter was furious after ordering these cookbooks. She has a son and a daughter and wanted to get both of them into cookery and understanding food. She had bought these books from the Usborne series because she considered Usborne to be a trusted name in children's books.
Furious? Have a look at the ridiculous choice of contents for the girls book. Now, I haven't actually handled these books myself but have had a look at the book previews on amazon, where you can see the list of recipes and get the general feel. The boys book seems actually pretty good. There are better books out there but the recipes seem to represent a fairly balanced diet. The girls book? I am flabbergasted. What kind of message is it trying to portray? Girls only care about sweet things, pink and baking?
