We Eat Bananas
Publisher: Bloomsbury Children’s Books
An entertaining collection of animal friends chomp their way through a variety of different meals in this cheerful picture book, which is packed full of fabulous foods of every description.
From sandwiches and cakes to fruit and vegetables, children will love poring over the pages to identify the wide range of delicious fare. While Giraffe slurps a bowl of tomato soup, Penguin tucks into a fish finger sandwich and Octopus gets in a twist with gluten-free spaghetti. The ice cream page is sure to be a firm favourite, and the pancakes have some very inventive toppings.
There are plenty of early learning opportunities, as readers are invited to count, identify colours and make independent choices about the food they like best. They are sure to enjoy searching for the elusive hedgehog, who hides throughout the book, as well as the cheeky monkey, who provides clues about the food that is featured on the following page. Bright, bold illustrations are full of humorous detail and are the perfect accompaniment to this light-hearted celebration of food, which is a delight to share with young children.
