Maya & Filippo Play Chef at Sea (Vol. 2) by @Alinka Rutkowska #BookReview

Maya and Filippo are a pair of jet-setting kids who travel the world with their parents and their cat, Otello. They live on a massive ship, which you think would get boring, but not for Maya and Filippo! These kids know how to get their hands dirty, in the kitchen that is. They learn how to bake cakes, and all sorts of other treats.

One great thing about the Maya and Filippo books is that each story is fun, but there are some quickly slipped in lessons so that your own children are learning right along with the kids too. Kitchen safety, healthy snacking, washing your hands, and sharing are all very important lessons that can be taken from this book and applied to your own real life cooking with kids experience. Next time you try to bake, have the kids help out like Maya and Filippo.

I loved Maya and Filippo’s first adventure, so I was thrilled to find another book in the series and I snapped it up right away. The concept of having children travel the world is by no means unique, yet Alinka Rutkowska writes with such heart and joy that Maya and Filippo’s adventures make them stand out from the crowd and really excel at what counts, entertaining children. The cute pictures, paired with a fun and interesting story, is sure to delight kids and encourage traveling. What a way to get out of your own town and explore the world. A very fun book indeed.
