Bright pictures and an exuberant anteater make this book about a weirdly picky eater extra fun. I cannot look at tortellini without saying "totallini!" now. Dinner is forever more fun! --Recommended by Caitlin

I originally got my two year old to pay attention to this book by telling him its the same anteater as the one from another book he loves. He really enjoyed pointing to all the different foods on the page, telling me what they were, this book was his first time pronouncing the word "avocado." The illustrations are cute and teaches kids about a wide variety of foods outside of your every day chicken nuggets and french fries.
