K-Gr 2-Three exuberant children make pizza from scratch (with a little help from an adult) and enjoy eating it together. Full-page color layouts illustrate the multiethnic cooking crew as they mix and knead the dough, add sauce and toppings, and bake it. The rhyming text is right on target for the grade level. The short sentences and easy text, combined with the lively illustrations, clearly convey the process. A recipe is included for any readers inspired to try it themselves. An excellent addition to easy-reader shelves.-Lisa Smith, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
