Two young toddlers stumble upon a treasure trove of wonderful toys, right in their own kitchen cupboard--a rolling pin, a tea kettle, chopsticks, measuring spoons, and lots of pots and pans to bang.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-- Identifying the utensils in the kitchen is the book's basic purpose, but the little carrot-topped girl and brown-haired boy exploring them are having fun playing, too. The children enter the kitchen in the beginning, ready to plunder the shelves and cabinets; then the objects are shown individually; and in the end the children, wearing a strainer and a colander on their heads, are shown banging and beating on the pots and pans. The objects are pictured with softened realism, but the human figures are cartoonlike. The warm browns of the rolling pin and wooden spoons contrast pleasantly with the silvery shapes of the tea kettle and saucepan, the butter yellow casserole, and the tomato red mixing bowl. The glowing watercolors are dynamically balanced, and the layout is well varied. Blue-and-white checked and flowered endpapers complete a cheerful and unified whole. The simple text mentions a few shapes, sizes, and construction materials but mainly names the items. Preschoolers who know the joys of pulling out kitchen things will appreciate this book. --Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA

From Publishers Weekly:

A seemingly unprepossessing subject yields surprising rewards in this attractive picture book. Two moppets tour the kitchen cupboards, pointing out such items as a cast-iron frying pan, a butter warmer, a Bundt pan, Tupperware containers, etc. The text, frugally pared, names each object and makes occasional direct overtures to the reader ("How many wooden spoons are in our kitchen cupboard?"). Lizzy Rockwell's bright watercolors capture an impressive variety of textures, from the gleaming metal of a tea kettle to the interior of a well-seasoned wok, the enamel of a casserole to the wire mesh of a strainer. Recognizing the interests of their audience, the mother-and-daughter team eschew the conventional uses of kitchen paraphernalia; instead, a final spread presents the children, hatted in colander and strainer, making music with wire whisk, wooden spoons, bowl and casserole. Thoroughly appetizing. Ages 3-6.
