The only words in this book are nouns. The first page features a banana that is fashioned out of a banana. At story time I asked the children, "What is this?" A DOG! "What is he made of?" A BANANA! "What do dogs say?" WOOF! WOOF!

The second page features a cat fashioned from small onions. The questions are the same and the responses match the illustration.

Believe it or not, we all had a lot of fun with this clever book.

A super cute and creative book from the author of the popular 'How are you Peeling?' Freymann mixes simple phrases with with pictures of baby animals made from fruit in this fun and colorful picture book.

This book creates a lot of conversation about what fruit or veggie these "baby" animals are. My one wish would be that the actual food used in each picture was listed with each photo.

There is a listing on the back, but some we weren't clear on.

My Three-year old didn't seem to enjoy this one as much as "Dog Food", but she still liked it.
Very creative work.

Pictures of baby animals made from fruits and vegetables. While my baby recognized a few of the animals, and it's a very creative idea, I think my baby prefers pictures of real animals.

Rated and reviewed by Dylan, age 7:

They were making baby animals out of food. I think I would like to try to make all of them. This book was easy because there was a little bit of words.

The cuteness will make you squee, but another part of you will just be staring in open-mouthed wonder, gradually taking in all the details to figure out how he did it.

In the year of having a kid now, this is the second really good baby book I've found.

VERY cute. Not my favorite of his books but this one was meant for very little kids so it isn't meant to be Shakespeare.

I enjoyed this book, but I'd rather add "Food for Thought" by the same author to my collection.
