With a few well-placed knife cuts and the addition of black-eyed peas for eyes, the creator of Food for Thought transforms fruits and vegetables into a menagerie of animals and everyday objects. Green pepper frogs, banana giraffes, and a sweet potato guinea pig are just a few of the edible sculptures used to illustrate simple concepts for young children. Five chapters highlight shapes, colors, numbers, letters, and opposites, in a format guaranteed to amuse adults while entertaining children. (Ages 2–6)
