Editorial Reviews

Pamela Paul
Simple, tactile and clever…will appeal to babies…as well as to 3-year-olds snuggling down with a parent at bedtime.
From the Publisher

"Simple, tactile and clever, these delicious little books will appeal to babies grappling with their many colorful cut-out pages."

"[The backgrounds] featur[e] objects toddlers are sure to recognize (fire engines, flowers, etc), adding to the visual appeal."
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"A creative way to demonstrate to toddlers to open wide and enjoy a meal."

School Library Journal
PreS—In this jazzy little board book, each page denotes someone (or something) eating, e.g., "A spoonful for THE CAT!/A spoonful for THE MAILMAN,/a spoonful for THE DOLL!" The die-cut pages are all focused on food consumption, and THE SUPERHERO and THE DINOSAUR provide some humor to rev up the repetition. Illustrations are done in pencil and digital art. The bright hues bleed off the page. A creative way to demonstrate to toddlers to open wide and enjoy a meal.—Anne Beier, Hendrick Hudson Free Library, Montrose, NY
