Eat Together

Penguin Workshop/Rise X. Nov. 2022. 32p. Board $9.99. ISBN 9780593384800.
Toddler-PreS–Inviting text and winsome cardboard collage illustrations come together in an appealing food-themed guessing game. Readers are presented with a set of deconstructed shapes and invited to predict the food they will form once the page is turned. Each item (strawberry, cupcake, lettuce, hamburger, turkey, pizza) once put together is promptly carried away by ants, who at the end of the book must break their snacks back down into individual shapes, carry them piece by piece through the narrow mouth of their anthill, and reassemble them underground to create a wacky feast of avant-garde food piles. Children will relish the enterprising ant characters and the winning interactive component.
VERDICT This generous graphic concept book will benefit all collections.
