"A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading.”
― William Styron, Conversations with William Styron
Title: First Book of Sushi
Author: Amy Wilson Sanger
Ages: 3 months +
If your family gets excited about food and loves to experiment with new tastes and textures then this series is for you! First Book of Sushi educates with playful rhymes and lush collages of patterns. Textured mixed-media collages bring food to life. One teacher even used this in her classroom as a textbook to teach Japanese culture, concepts, and language to her students. Check out the back cover as the last line of the book is on there – clever, but could also be a bit confusing. Other books in this series are: Hola Jalapeno, Let’s Nosh, Chaat and Sweets, Mangia Mangia, Yum Yum Dim Sum, and a Little Bit of Soul. Another great feature: oftentimes there are pronunciation guides and meanings of words on the back of the books to help the adults with their education. Get your own and then buy extra copies to give as gifts to friends, even babies as early as three months are mesmerized by these tasty little books. The books are short, full of designs and patterns and will bring giggles to faces and drools to faces. ( I know that was a bad poem but all I had this morning to give you). It is a perfect introduction to a new food in your child's life. It is in board book form so your child can explore and nibble on it to their heart's content.
