Here's a book that helps younger kids make a connection between great food and the colors they see in their everyday lives. Red trucks and toys at playtime? How about strawberries and squirty cherry tomatoes for a snack? An orange sunset leads into sweet potatoes for dinner and a tangy mango for dessert. With gatefolds that provide a guessing-game mode, it's a fun gateway to better eating. Offering a non-didactic way to open a conversation about good nutrition with a young child - with art that looks good enough to eat -the book also includes a note by a leading nutritionist about helping kids choose and enjoy great, fresh foods. Mm-mm, good reading and good eating.

Praise For MMM? Let's Eat!

Praise for Betsy Thompson's illustrations in Eggs 1, 2, 3, by Janet Halfmann:

*An Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Medal Winner

"For her picture-book debut, Thompson plays up the nature theme by using richly textured papers and fabrics to fashion her cut-paper collages. While her shapes and outlines are quite simple, their textures are anything but plain, adding another whole dimension to the artwork." --Kirkus Reviews
