One thought on “Naples!

  1. Engrid Penny

    Cute book for kids I can see it adding a spark to ignite sorry about that interest in cooking with fresh ingredients Didn t care for the characterization of the older sisterl told, it was cute.

  2. Gail

    Good book for the under 10 group I like to read children s books to keep up to date for my grandchildren.

  3. Creolecat

    While looking for children s cookbooks for my goddaughter, I came across this book and New Orleans Recipe for Adventure 4 by television chef Giada De Laurentiis Part of a series about the Bertolizzi siblings, each book takes them to a different city for a culinary adventure I am not a follower of Giada and I don t own any of her cookbooks But this is a fun series The stories have depth and the illustrations are lively Not only do children read about Emelia and Alfie s adventures, but they learn [...]

  4. Kirsten

    This book reads as if it were written by a celebrity chef intent on promoting good, healthy cooking and eating Huh It sounds reasonable, but it just didn t work, especially with the gender stereotypes Ugh.

  5. Namratha

    A kiddie book for kiddies and adults like me who love cooking and believe that something truly magical can happen when you respect the alchemy of food.

  6. Katie Fitzgerald

    This review covers books 1 and 2 of the Recipe for Adventure series.Alfie and Emilia usually eat take out for dinner because neither of their parents really likes to cook When Zia Donatella, their great aunt, comes to live with them, she introduces them to real home cooked cuisine Alfie and Emilia are thrilled to learn about new foods, and even excited when their aunt s cooking actually transports them to other countries In the first two books of this new series, Alfie and Emilia make unexplain [...]

  7. Elissa Schaeffer

    I approached this with trepidation, knowing that Giada de Laurentiis has added yet another dimension to her celebrity with now writing children s books.Upon being visited by their Zia Donatella, Alfie and Emelia, who s family dinner s consist of take out and pizza ordering, taste home cooked food from simple ingredients and find themselves whisked away to Naples for an adventure of ingredients.This struggled at first to find it s footing, mostly because it struggled to find it s narrator before [...]

  8. Jenn M

    Excellent beginning to the Recipe for Adventure series, co authored by Giada De Laurentiis, celebrity chef of Food Network and best selling cookbooks fame I believe these books probably originated with Giada telling stories to her nieces nephews and or child ren , because the main characters are Italian Americans, some of whom were born in Italy and emigrated and who love to cook This story begins with the Bertolizzi family enjoying take out food and siblings Alfie Alfredo and Emilia squabbling [...]

  9. Reving

    So Giada De Laurentiis is writing kids books now Recipe for Adventure 1 Naples Is her first one, the next one is Paris De Laurentiis was at ALA Chicago, but I didn t see her, but I did get a galley of Naples The premise of these books is interesting Alfredo and Emilia and Italian American siblings who are introduced to real Italian cooking by their Aunt Zia When they take a bite of her zeppole, they are transported to present day Naples where they help a family in trouble It s kinda a Magic Tree [...]

  10. Penny McGill

    A nice series choice for younger kids A brother and sister team up on adventures that have them travelling the world and helping children they meet with food related mysteries The siblings don t argue as much as they should said my 12 year old and there isn t enough tension there to grab our attention for long It might be that this series is too young for the readers in this house but I know that I ll be passing this one on to the strong readers who have finished everything Droon like or Jack an [...]

  11. Gabrielle

    Such an easy book for the culinary kid Or the person who dreams of traveling Or likes to eat This book was one I read in an hour, it was that easy It is the story of Alfie and his sister who are magically transported to Naples and a pizza making adventure You can tell that Giada de Laurentiis has been to Naples, as the descriptions of the places are vividly written Like I didn t need another reason to go to Italy.Another highlight of the book are the Italian words and phrases that pepper the pag [...]

  12. Jen B.

    I think this series could be a great series for students to get hooked on I love that it is something different, in terms of the passion for food and cooking While there are some similarities to other series boy girl siblings, traveling, adventure mystery this new twist is something a few of my students are really excited about, that I have not seen elsewhere The description of Naples and the food made my mouth water and piqued my curiosity to travel to this part of the world I want it to do the [...]

  13. KGlo

    Note This book was won on a giveaway featured on All thoughts on the book are my own.This is an adorable book featuring siblings Emilia and Alfie as they have an adventure in Naples Although the plot is a little silly, it is still a cute book that focuses on family, food, and cultural traditions This book would be perfect for an elementary school reader.The only thing I dislike about it is the recipe cards in the back The idea is nice, but I wish they would have included recipes that are easy fo [...]

  14. Megan

    Magic Tree House meets the Food Network is the best description of this beginning chapter book While it s a fun read with adventure, food and facts there was some sort of weird gender stuff going on between the brother and the sister that really bothered me It would have been fine but over and over again to the point of ridiculousness the author mentioned how afraid and timid Emilia was and how her brother always had to care for her This book is not on my list of great female characters but fans [...]

  15. Elaine

    This is like Magic Tree House, but going to a different location rather than a different time period The focus is pizza and the kids mysteriously and unexpectedly travel to Naples and while they are there, they discover the pizza legacy of Naples, using fresh, simple, quality ingredients It s a sweet story that intertwines the importance of family into the adventure The beginning of the book was filled with annoying bickering between the siblings, but by the end of the book, they realize how imp [...]

  16. Kim

    I read this one second due to my library being delayed with the weather As with the second book, the recipes were missing from this copy, a move I now feel was done by the library for whatever reason This makes it hard to review the entire book as it was not complete I liked the second book a little better than this one, but since this was introducing the characters, I can forgive the stiffness of it I feel that your budding chef and early readers will like the story, and again Giada fans will s [...]

  17. paula

    Hmm Yes to the celebration of cooking and eating, yes to the story of ingredients and the descriptions of Naples No to the older sister being so frightened and trepidatious that her younger brother is constantly monitoring her comfort level, and has to make all the decisions and cajole her into action Yes to the actual recipes included in the book giant Yes , and I m going to read the next book to see whether Emilia becomes emboldened in the course of these adventures.

  18. Lauren

    Very cute idea for a series A brother and sister are magically transported to another country via their fun and crazy aunt and her delicious food Cute, fun read, and something I recommended to my 9 year old daughter She LOVES this series and we enjoy making some of the recipes that are in the back of every book.

  19. Carol

    This series is a great choice for 3rd graders Basically it is Magic Tree House for slightly older kids with an international cuisine twist.Brother and sister are catapulted into another part of the world with the help from their aunt While trying to figure out how they got to Naples and how to get back home, they stumble upon a family rivalry and a bit of mystery.

  20. Wendy

    Cute chapter book about a brother and sister magically transported to Naples, Italy, after eating their great aunt s delicious zeppole I think the series will get kids excited about both food and traveling Also, I am now craving a pizza Margherita, and I am seriously considering using the recipe card included in the back of the book.

  21. Cassandra

    I won this book for free from first reads.I loved this book and it is such a fast read that you can enjoy with your kids I loved to read it out loud an d my kids and home school kids had a great time This book is well written and I would love to read by this author in the future.

  22. Dieu-Hoa Nguyen

    Quite good book for children to understand about pizza and southern Italy in general One interesting thing is that in the end of the book, the author gives recipes of making pizzas and zeppole so even children can cook with the aid of their parents.

  23. Tyler Hedge

    I heard of this book through my 7.5 year old sister i enjoy taking a break from my fantasy booksI think this book was great a small approximately 100 page book.but I still LOVE fantasy.

  24. pati

    The only problem with this book is that I get so hungry when I am reading about all the delicious food I wish I could just jump right in and join Emilia and Alfie Great story for young adventurers who will learn how to travel by reading a book

  25. Molly

    My 9 year old daughter really enjoyed this book I think this series would be great for kids that enjoy cooking My kids are little foodies I think fans of the Magic Tree House would also enjoy this as there is magical travel involved as well as a positive message at the end.

  26. Gemma

    Picked this up at the library on a whim Food, international travel with Italian language mixed in made for an interesting concept The writing is just so, so, but a fine choice for kids who just want to spend a few hours on a light read Won t appeal to everyone, but it does for us.

  27. Rachel

    Fun read, great for kids or families who either love food or are getting ready to travel to Naples Siblings fighting and having to work together while learning about the history and sights of Naples, all while learning to make Neapolitan pizza.

  28. Beth

    A lovely story about the importance of food and family While the writing lacked a true and distinct voice, it was an entertaining read nonetheless Longer review to come.
