Chew on these one-of-a-kind conversation starters!

Pass the salt? Eat your peas? You can do better than that! This book provides you with 365 ways to spark conversation and engage your youngsters while you gather around the table.

Make dinnertime a lively experience the whole family looks forward to, as kids share their ideas, explore their creativity, and let you in on their wildest dreams with fun (and thought-provoking) questions like:

  • If you could adopt a single trait from a wild animal, such as horns or a poisonous bite, what would it be?
  • If you could invite any character from a book or movie to do something with you, who would you invite and what would you do?
  • What would your life be like if you could be invisible?

Studies show that kids who participate in regular family meals get better grades, have larger vocabularies, and are healthier than kids who don't. So grab your fork--and your imagination--because it's never too early to start a dynamic dinner routine!
