Jocelyn, M., & Slaughter, T. (2007). EATS. Plattsburgh, NY: Tundra Books.


As a concept book, Eats shares simple images of various animals and a common type of food that beasty eats.

Each page includes an animal pictured with that food labeled according to color codes. There are no complete sentences and if the child recognizes the animal and food chances are good the child will not even need to glance at the text. So, if a teacher is using this book to help with phonics or early

"This book has no narrative at all, just two words on each simply illustrated page. One word is an animal name, the other is the name of something it eats. The reader (or reader and a child listener) adds the rest. When I had young children, I was not a fan of these kinds of books. I need story! However, Eats was a huge hit with a three-year-old family member. I believe a couple of us read it with him three times over a long weekend. I think the last page was the grabber for him.

A reminder that

I liked how though this book looked simple in design and layout it was well thought out and designed incredibly well. I was mostly impressed with the artwork and how each animal corresponded with the food they ate. I think it would be a great book in teaching small children about animals and the foods they eat.

Illustrations by Tom Slaughter bring this treatment to life in bold primary colors. The organization seems to point to something that is not delivered. But for very early readers, this is a sweet beginning to learning how all living creatures depend on food.
For the earliest readers (and great for those with low vision) this is a great concept book. Simple simple text: Worm apple. Giraffes leaves. Love the ending (and who eats ice cream?). Great for toddler storytime!

This story has bright colorful pictures that show the name of an animal and the name of the food they are eating. This book teaches students names of animals and names of food they eat. With all the bright colors, it will be easier for them to remember. This is great for Ells

Each page of this book shows an enimal and what the animal eats. It's a nice idea, though for some reason the whale eats a squid instead of krill.

A very simple colorful book about animals and their eating habits. This is especially good for the very young because of the simple illustrations and short text

You can read my review here.
Invite preschoolers to "read" the pictures and words: "Who likes to eat...?" Bold graphic design carries well for group readings.
