Yummy!  Eating Through the Day selected by Lee Bennett Hopkins

Cover Image

A delicious group of humerous poems about all kinds of food, this anthology will take kids from breakfast to bedtime snack, with all kinds of food in between.    Distinguished poet Lee Bennett Hopkins has selected short poems ranging from “Ketchup” and “Jell-o Cups” to “Peas” and “Macaroni and Cheese”.   While the actual words may be over the head of most young readers, the sound of the poems coming off the tongue will mesmerize them, and they will love the extremely bright illustrations, done in vivid, contrasting colors and showing food and kitchenware with faces.   Kids and their adults should savor this delectable meal of a book together.
