"I Am a Little Chef is a fun interactive book to learn all about cooking. There are so many different types of ways to cook foods. This book shows there are many different types of food from all over the world."

Kids Book Buzz

“Art, irrespective of medium, either on paper or in the pan, has the potential to inspire, and no other children's book better exemplifies this. The way Mayumi Oono blends the fun of the kitchen with the approachability of crafts is truly brilliant. The striking style is reminiscent of greats like Matisse and midcentury French children’s books, the very same books I grew up reading. The new vintage look of I Am a Little Chef is the perfect inspiration for anyone looking to uncover their passion. I love it.”
