Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The settings in this book all have to do with food—ranging from sitting in a high chair being fed with a spoon that looks like a jet liner, to playing with the pots and pans in a cupboard and enjoying the fun of going to a market. This cast of babies of various ethnicities and sexes share a common interest in food. In some cases, they share it with others, with the birds sitting on a park bench, or with friends at their very own table. The pictures look like they belong in an avant garde magazine, and one of my favorites is the picture of the young girl, glasses upside down, reading an upside down cookbook. She looks so relaxed and so sophisticated. This is not a book for everyone and neither are some of the other titles in this series such as Urban Babies Wear Black. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Kirkus Reviews
The latest in the Urban Babies Wear Black series demonstrates a wry sense of humor, crisp, sophisticated graphics and a thematic approach that leaves its presumed audience of babies in the cold. In addition to wearing bibs, it appears that foodie babies "know their way around a kitchen," "browse farmers' markets" and "dine al fresco." Dion's illustrations partake of a Helen Oxenbury-style sense of irony (the baby sharing "small plates" is seen from behind, flinging peas at a startled mother), but the complexity of their rendering puts them far beyond the visual comprehension of an actual baby. More for smug foodie parents than real babies-but we already knew that. (2-3)

I give these books to my friends as gifts all the time. They always love them, plus the children do too! They are fun to read and the children love the illustrations and love to read them once they learn to read also! I also recommend the baby bood as a gift for the shower! (For the non-traditional mother!)
