Foodie Reads 2016: Yummy Yucky


I wasn't sure I would share this for the Foodie Reads 2016 Challenge, but when my (little) foodies read this book, cuddled on the couch, giggling to themselves multiple times, I changed my mind. They are both in middle school; they read novels and textbooks. But they read this board book until I took it away to wrap it as a baby shower gift.

We all have smaller foodies in our lives, right? Maybe they are our kids, our grandkids, our nieces, nephews, or just good friends. And we all have opinions about our food. Yummy Yucky by Leslie Patricelli* illustrates the differences between those two adjectives in a charming way.

"Spaghetti is yummy. Worms are yucky."


"Blueberries are yummy. Blue crayons are yucky."

I remember a time in my life when I didn't read anything other than board books. I didn't have the energy to read for myself. But I read to the boys constantly. I'm glad those days are done and that they read constantly on their own. But I thoroughly enjoyed this kids' book by Patricelli. And, I figured, I would share it. It is a book about food after all! Yummy and yucky food.

  4. This book really is cute. I gave a copy to my little niece, who is finally at a point where she's figured out that books are for reading, not chewing on.
