I Like a Snack on an Iceberg

Overview

I like a mouthful of clover.
I like a bucket of scraps.
We like a bowl full of warm milk,
before curling up for our naps.

Bananas, bowls of milk, acorns, and clover are just some of the tasty treats that make appearances in this smorgasbord of snacks and snackers. Iris Hiskey Arno's delectable verse and John Sandford's beautiful and often ...

Overview

I like a mouthful of clover.
I like a bucket of scraps.
We like a bowl full of warm milk,
before curling up for our naps.

Bananas, bowls of milk, acorns, and clover are just some of the tasty treats that make appearances in this smorgasbord of snacks and snackers. Iris Hiskey Arno's delectable verse and John Sandford's beautiful and often humorous watercolors lead children through a wild world of munching and back home again to soothe the rumble in their own hungry tummies.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
With lifelike drawing and playful rhymes, this preschool book shows youngsters what types of animals munch on what kinds of foods. Children learn about the polar bear eating a fish on an iceberg, the woodpecker in a tree, the chickens pecking at corn in the barnyard, the pig scarfing down scraps, and the furry kittens drinking warm milk before curling up with their mother. Young readers/listeners also are treated to an elephant with a bag of peanuts, a long-tongued frog going after a fly, a naughty puppy that snatches a sandwich from the kitchen table, and a goat that will eat anything! Heavy paper makes this book friendly to tough little hands. Even the youngest book enthusiasts will enjoy looking at the drawings as well as listening to the easy text. 1999, HarperFestival, Ages 2 to 4, $9.95. Reviewer: Julie Steinberg
Library Journal
PreS-K-A tidy rhyme describes the location and fare for a variety of creatures' snacks: "I like a snack on an iceberg./I like a snack in a tree./Pecking our corn in the barnyard/is perfect for Mama and me." First-person menu preferences are delivered by a polar bear, woodpecker, chick, cow, elephant, puppy, goat, and girl, among others. Full-color artwork in a realistic style celebrates a variety of habitats and captures a pleasing array of textures and light. Pick this tidbit as a light introduction to nutrition study or to fill a few minutes before snack time.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
This Growing Tree entry features a series of animals, one to a page, nibbling on appropriate tidbits: "I like a snack on an iceberg," says a polar bear with a fish in its mouth, opposite a woodpecker who says, "I like a snack in a tree." Chickens, cows, pigs, kittens, elephants, and frogs have their say, as does the puppy that steals a sandwich off a checkered tablecloth. The last word is a girl's, whose rich brown tresses and glowing dark eyes contrast nicely with the big red apple in her hand. The meticulously detailed illustrations, with their stippled lines depicting every feather and blade of grass, are attractive if static. The text, however, is bouncy enough for repeated read-alouds.
