Excellent rhythm & language, would be a joy to read aloud. Also, I can easily imagine a toddler laughing at the baby sharing all her food with the animals. The repetition, the pattern, are good because they help children learn about language and then learn to read more easily. But still, it just didn't charm me, personally, and so the star rating is probably lower than a professional reviewer's would be.

This romp of a text, paired with beguiling illustrations, is sure to get enthusiastic response--and even invite lots of listener participation. Full color.

This would be a great book to make a felt story of. A little child sitting at her highchair while mom plays the drums. In walk a number of animals who eat the baby's lunch. Will mom notice? Recommended in Under The Chinaberry Tree in "making it through the day." A clever way for mom to de-stress - a musical interlude with the drums!

Fun read aloud about a distracted mother who served her baby a lunch that was thrown to the floor piece by piece for the animals to enjoy. What kid hasn't shared their unwanted food with the family pet? The child in this story was fortunate enough to have a variety of barn yard animals come and help clean his plate.

The story is actually not that fantastic, but how Ady responds to this book is delightful! She just loves it and after multiple renewals at the library, I finally broke down and bought the book.
