With each turn, the reader can “feed” a new one, an activity that seems to bring a mysterious delight to children.
—The New York Times
Kids will delight in wielding the power to bring food directly to the hungry creatures’ mouths. Full of teachable moments—healthy-eating discussions, animal habitats, and more—this is an undeniable hit. A terrific read to placate little ones who may be waiting on their own meals.
A natural pick for toddlers, who will enjoy taking on the role of caretaker for this needy menagerie.
A solid choice for food or animal storytimes and one-on-one sharing.
—School Library Journal
This will make a cheerful addition to baby and toddler storytimes, and it will be a popular title for home reading (and an especially nice choice for an older sibling-younger sibling readaloud session) as well.
