Pretend Soup and Other Real Recipes: A Cookbook for Preschoolers. by Mollie Katzen and Ann Henderson.
Tricycle Press: Berkeley, CA, 1994.

Honest Pretzels: And 64 Other Amazing Recipes for Cooks Ages 8 & Up written and il by Mollie Katzen.
Tricycle Press: Berkeley, CA, 1999.

Katzen's books are organized and written in a simple format to get young people involved in the cooking process. The recipes are simple and appealing to kids. The books get them excited about meal preparation and help them to see how we cook. It is also an experience to do with an adult, so that's a plus for them. Cooking together is a great experience. A bonus for parents is that if the kids are involved, there will be less whining about the food.

RL=1st and up **One of the books says preschoolers. I don't know how involved they can be at that age. Certainly they will like the pictures and food and be interested, but the adult would be doing most of the work.
