My Foodie ABC Is A Tasty Treat
Now here’s an ABC book that makes me hungry!
My Foodie ABC: A Little Gourmet’s Guide is a wonderful board book that stresses the importance of having a healthy relationship with food while teaching the letters of the alphabet.
The 22 full color pages captured my toddler’s attention and she listened intently as I read the descriptions for each letter (for example B is for Bento Box!)
The writer Puck, who also wrote the Cool Counting Books series, does a great job in introducing exotic foods like dragon fruit and jicama. I love that there are pronunciations included too. Now I know how to say “alfajores”, a cookie I definitely want to try one day.
The artwork is clever. Illustrator Violet Lemay creates a simple layout with scanned items behind each letter. She even used a bamboo cutting board for one of the designs!
Recommended for kids 3-6, as an adult I adore it. It’s educational, hip and unique!
Published by Duo Press, MY Foodie ABC is $8.95 and available starting September 2010.
