Although out of print and only available in libraries or as used, I couldn’t resist introducing Baby Food, by Saxton Freymann and Joost Elffers. Each page of intense pink, blue, yellow or green features a baby animal carved and decorated out of a piece of fruit or vegetable. Expand a child’s imagination and creativity with Baby Food while simultaneously introducing vegetables and fruits. A child could have fun calling out the animal and calling out the food used. When they get a bit older, try making your own animal with your helper. Find out how they make a baby alligator out of a yam and a mouse out of radishes!
Available as a used selection on Amazon; check your library, too!
