A whimsical–yet factual–series of questions and answers about the things we eat… and don’t eat! Food critic Joshua David Stein whets the appetite of young readers with a wondrous and informative approach to talking about food. This humorous, stylized and entirely unexpected set of food facts will engage both good eaters and resisters alike. With questions both practical (“Can you eat a sea urchin?”) and playful (“Do eggs grow on eggplants?”), this read-aloud text offers young children facts to share and the subtle encouragement to taste something new! Food and textile illustrator Julia Rothman brings an authenticity to the text that Stein has written from the heart, for his own three year-old and for pre-schoolers everywhere. Created for ages 3-5 years
