Cheeky little split page flip book for younger readers to concoct all sorts of crazy meals and scenarios - do you like toothpaste on your toast? Or custard in your bath?
Very simplistic illustrations but very bold and colourful :)

Ok for the kind of book where you can match/mismatch the top and bottom halves. Nothing special though.

I've bought this book because I teach English to kids, so my perspective is a bit specialised. I think it's a great book, playful and funny and a great way to teach Do... questions and food items.

Yeeeees! The book of my childhood, my brother and I adored putting ketchup on our cornflakes, custard in our bath, toothpaste on our head...

Well, if you have to do the cleaning up afterwards, maybe this book isn't such a good idea, but although the layout is simplistic it's fun, brightly coloured and silly. My brother and I fought often over who would get to turn the pages. I picked this up again just the other day, now a teenager, and read through it with my little cousin, who thought it was

This is a very simple book. There are two flaps. The first says, "Do you like ketchup" and the second says, "on your cornflakes?" with pictures of ketchup being pourn onto cornflakes. You can change the flaps to ask different questions: "Do you like milk on your cornflakes?" "Do you like custard on your toes?" "Do you like ice cubes in your lemonade?" The child can answer either yes or no.

This makes a great book for Teaching English as A Foreign Language or Second Language.

This is a fun book where you can turn the top half of the book or the bottom half and make strange combinations or normal combinations. For example, the top half might say, "Do you put ice cubes" and the bottom part would say "in your lemonade?" and then you could turn the bottom page and make it instead say "in your bath?"

Recommends it for: Kids Ages 3+ and Food Storytime
Is there Ketchup on Your Cornflakes, sounds kinda gross--which, ofcourse, is why kids will love this. This flip through book is not only fun and cute, but great vocabulary builder for new readers. A fantastic attention keeper for storytime and I would recommened getting this book for any young reader, not just preschoolers.

I love reading this book to my kindergarten students! It's always hilarious to get their reactions.

me: "Do you like a DUCK on your HEAD?"
kids: "Nooooo-oooo!"
me: "(Boy's name) likes ducks on his head."
Boy: "Nooooo!"
