Cookery books for young people

This week, we look at three books about cooking for young people.

My First Cookbook by Lenard Minnow
Lenard Minnow's last cookery book was a huge success across the world. And now, he has written a cookery book just for children. It has lots of lovely reading activities so that children can get to know the names of more unusual foods. It explains in an easy-to-read way how to cook and makes it clear that cooking can be a hobby that young and old can really enjoy.

Cooking for Students by Cormac O’Dally
The idea for this book came when Cormac O'Dally's two sons went away to university. They never cooked and had no idea what to do in the kitchen, so Cormac wrote this book to help them. The photo on the cover of the book shows Cormac and his sons laughing and enjoying the food together. Students who use this book won't win prizes for great new food ideas. The meals are very simple, like cheese on toast, but they're easy to prepare and good for you, too.

Everybody Can Cook by Denise Macon
With its “look-as-you-cook" photos, you can see the author doing everything that you need to do in this wonderful new book. And, as the title says, you'll soon be able to make tasty meals. Many of them come from all four corners of the world. The author received £4,000 when the book was chosen as Cookbook of the Year in the competition this year.

Where playing video games IS real life

Seo-yun Cho doesn't have time for hobbies because she spends all her time playing video games. "I practice as much as I can so l will improve," she says. "This is what I really need to do." Seo-yun and her friends are members of KS Fireflies 6, a video game team. She and the other members share a flat in Seoul's business district. Since they all left school, they have managed to make playing video games their life.

Every day, Seo-yun gets up after a good night's sleep at 10 a.m and goes for a jog for an hour, before sitting down at her computer and starting to play. She and her friends have a few breaks to eat and relax during the day and the evening, but Seo-yun thinks that after midnight is when she has more fun playing than at any other time. She usually goes to bed at 3 a.m.

Seo-yun and the rest of the team need to train hard and keep fit, as top players need to do about 500 mouse- clicks a minute. Video games are big business in South Korea, and the best players (like KS Fireflies 6) usually become even better-known than top baseball or volleyball players.

Some people might get bored after playing video games for an hour or two. But these guys are actually getting paid to do something they love as a job. Many of them would even like to do it for free!

What is the most important thing for Seo-yun Cho?

  • Trying new video games
  • Getting better at video games
  • Finding enough time to play video games

Seo-yun and her friends _____

  • live together.
  • went to school together.
  • have a business together.
What does Seo-yun say about playing games at night?
  • It's when she feels happiest.
  • It's the time that she most enjoys playing.
  • It sometimes makes her tired.
What does the writer say about sports?
  • Seo-yun and her friends play a lot of sports video games.
  • Seo-yun and her friends play sports to get fit.
  • Seo-yun and her friends are more famous than some sports players.
Why does the writer think that Seo-yun and her friends are lucky?
  • Because they earn a lot of money
  • Because they don't need to look for another job
  • Because they are doing something that they love

From: Giles

To: Aunt Nel

Dear Aunt Nel,

Thank you very (0) much for the book you sent me. It was very kind of . Actually, History Space Travel sounds like a brilliant title. I'm really interested in that kind of thing - exploring space and learning about moon. I’ll start it after I finish the one I'm reading now, which is how cars are made.

The holidays are nearly finished now. l go to school next week. Then I've only got two more years of school, so I need to decide what to next!

Thanks again for the present.

Best wishes,

Giles
