Pajama Pr.. (Big, Little Concepts). Mar. 2024. 24p. Tr $17.95. ISBN 9781772783018.
Toddler-PreS–The newest entry in the “Big, Little” series features bright colors, healthy foods, and color photos of people and animals eating their way through a veritable rainbow. Wittingham’s rhyming verse falls into an easy, enjoyable, and repetitive reading pattern that lends itself to an interactive story hour, where listeners can clap along and join in: “Bright gold, sticky gold,/ Dripped from the comb gold/ Gold for a bee,/ And gold for me!” A diverse group of children next to a variety of animals all enjoying vibrant fruits and vegetables illustrates how humans and animals eat many of the same foods; simultaneously, the pages introduce colors and wholesome eating.
VERDICT A playful concept book that will have toddlers and preschoolers reaching for fruits and vegetables; this is a multilayered addition to board book collections.
