New Children’s Book Explores Young girl’s determination to learn to prepare her favorite dish Kacie’s Chicken and Dumpling by Dr. Julia E. Antoine, is Volume 8 in the delightful Too Clever children’s book series. In the first story, Kacie was five. Now she is ten going on eleven and determined to prove to her parents, she can cook her favorite meal. During testing situations at school, she kept her focus and her friendship with her best friend, Holly, and as if that was not enough, she had to deal with her first crush.

This is a delightful book I think that many girls ages 8-12 will enjoy this story and be able to relate to it. I read it with my 11-year old son and we enjoyed it, although I do think it is geared towards girls.
