Review: Play with your Food
"Do you remember the remarkable book I talked about last year called I'm the Scariest Thing in the Jungle by David Derrick Jr.? It's become a family favorite, but now his fourth book Play with your Food has been released and it's become a rival for one of the choice top spots. My boys enjoy the fun story lines that this author always seems to master, as well as the colorful and personable illustrations...
Play with your Food will appeal to not only young dinosaur fans, but it's also sure to get any child who has been told not to play with your food giggling out loud. The story is simple and funny, and just long enough to keep the attention of even the younger readers. There's plenty of room for a child's imagination to roam in between the lines, especially if they take their time to explore the illustrated pages." - Just a Little Creativity
