Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sheilah Egan
This sturdy board book has small, baby-hand-sized slots cut through it to make it easy for little ones to grab it for eating—I mean reading. Two of the corners are covered with textured, rubbery material in bright red and blue just right for oral explorations. The text, beginning with the title, is clever and shows the word eating crossed out and reading written above it. As Momma reads and baby gnaws we learn that "crayons are for writing, not for biting" and "feet are for stomping, not for chomping." The latter goes for shoes, the dog's bone and the telephone. Written in rhymed couplets, the book cautions little ones to "leave the leaves on the plant" and to keep their teeth to themselves. Of course, everyone is aware that babies and small toddlers cannot help putting things in their mouths. The final picture shows baby in Grandma's arms being encouraged to give her a good-night kiss. We see that he has opened his mouth in a wide attempt to bite her on the nose! Babies will love it, as does my own grandson, who chews on the corners that are not protected by the "intended for teething" covers. Reviewer: Sheilah Egan

    My son loves this book!

    An easy to read alound book, about how items are supposed to be used. My son loves the bright colors, and the teethable edges. It could be a little longer, but I usually read it twice, anyway.

    Great book for any baby!

    My eight month old and I absolutely love this book. She's always trying to chew on the edges of the books, and so when she does so on this one I don't need to immediately get her to stop. Also, the story is just really cute and funny for adults, so it's entertaining for me to read.

    Charming, Colorful, Clever

    I am always on the lookout for new baby gifts, and try to steer clear of the more standard choices. I found this book, read it, and had that "Awwwwww!" reaction when I finished. It is a little gem of a book -- very sweet with big, engaging pictures. I'm glad I discovered it, and am happy to pass along news of this treasure to others. I hope to see more kid's books from this author.
