KIRKUS REVIEW

Spices don't have to come from jars--this family flavors its cooking with promenades and pirouettes. When the grandparents, parents, and children gather to make a meal, the first ingredient is music: ""Dancin' in the kitchen/The family's packed in tight/I think we may be/Dancin' in the kitchen all night."" Priceman's illustrations are a bright salsa of mango, olive, blueberry, and tomato, and the stirring, dipping, mixing, and waltzing of the characters are contagious. Sometimes the rhyme is a little stodgy, but for families who like to have both the radio and the stove on high, this book cooks.
