Did you know that koalas eat only eucalyptus? That arctic foxes dine on lemmings? Or that leatherback turtles enjoy a dish of jellyfish? Like children, animals can be very, very fussy about their food! This rhyming board book, with engaging lift-the-flaps, introduces toddlers to ten choosy creatures and their minimal diets. After meeting each animal, kids lift the flap to see what it eats. Most important, in addition to having fun, little ones learn that it’s good to eat adventurously.
Put a new food on your plate,
You may find it’s something great!
