4 out of 5 stars on GoodReads


This baby board book teaches little toddlers what is okay to eat and what is yucky! Fruit, veggies, icecream, donuts, and pizza are all good to eat, but boogers belong on a tissue, NOT in your mouth. Coins go in a piggy bank, NOT in your tummy. Crayons are for drawing, NOT digesting; and even toothpaste has to be spit out.

Each page has a simple silhouette of an item with the caption of “yum, yummy,” or “yuck”, perfect for teaching little hands to keep certain things out of their mouths.

I can really imagine reading this with a young child, and making faces as we read each page together; licking our lips and rubbing our tummies for the yummy pages, and making gross faces and gagging at the yucky pages. haha! Even a simple book like this is fun when read with a child!
This book is also useful to teach little kids the names of different types of foods, as they are learning to speak and identify various vegetables and fruits.

I like the clean illustrations that use geometric shapes to give the silhouette of the objects and items. The colors are bright but not overpowering, and the shapes bleed into one another for an interesting transparent look. The simplicity would appeal to any baby or toddler, catching the eye and engaging the attention.
