illus. by Mary Reaves Uhles. 32p. ebook available. Sleeping Bear. 2015. Tr $16.99. ISBN 9781585369133. LC 2015001601.
PreS-Gr 2—Food fights, chewing with one's mouth open, elbows on the table: all common sights at the kids' table. Just in time for the holiday season, this rhyming story brings readers of all ages to the fun table where the food is good and the company is better. Though some of the rhymes and rhythms may seem a stretch, the concept is strong and the silly illustrations carry the text. "I bet if grown-ups were granted three wishes,/one would be to give up those fancy dishes./And go back to the days when they were able/to sit again at the little kids' table./Because we all know when the meal is done,/which of the tables has had the most fun!"
VERDICT A great addition to any library's holiday collections that can be enjoyed throughout the year.
