Fast Food

Fast Food. Get it? Haha. Ha.

So the concept for this book is pretty simple. There isn't really a "story," but there are little rhymes that go along with each page. Every illustration is made of fruits and vegetables; this particular book has a transportation theme.

Saxton Freymann has written several books like this (by "like this," I mean illustrated with salad). I think my local library has six or seven of them. We've only read this one and How Are You Peeling?, and both of them are fun.

The best part for Little Boy--and for anyone who reads the book, really--is pointing out what fruits and vegetables are in the pictures. Some of them are tricky! And some of them are vegetables that Little Boy didn't recognize, like pea pods and radishes. Maybe we need a bit more variety in the veggies at our house, hmm? Anyway, these books are fun for little ones and a nice change from the usual children's book.

*Age ranges are very flexible.

Full disclosure: I don't receive any compensation for reviewing children's books--the books are usually just checked out from the local library.
