This is a fun story that shows different babies and the 'gross' foods they eat. It's very colorful and repetitive and I expect that a young child would really like it.

Yuck is a hilarious rhyming text about the “gross” information for children to learn about animal babies. The book talks about a crow, lizard, osprey, toad, and owl and all the foods that they eat to survive. However, the description of their food, a rotten egg or spiders with hairy legs, make it engaging for young readers.

though info is good for gr 1-3, illustrations are more for preschoolers.

The illustrations were cute.
I cant quite discern what age group this book is intended for. It seems to have halfway interesting information presented in a very babyish manner.

This is a book about animals and the different things they eat. The storytime kids loved the repeated use of the word, "Yuck."

My 4 and 3 year old LOVE this book. We borrowed it from the library and I read it about 10 times on that first day. My three year old basically has it memorized.
