Always loved dreambooks. ( )
  Kiramke | Jun 27, 2023 |
The book is very friendly, creative, and innocent, as it introduces so many different types of foods to children. Things that they could remember from spending the day in the kitchen or listening to parents. The book at the end of the say is encouraging to children who might need help broadening their list of favorite foods, and making their likes and dislikes much more indifferent. This book represents a childlike, cookbook that will influence children to be creative when it comes to their food choices. ( )

This eery, dreamy story discusses a Childs imagination so beautifully. I definitely feel uneasy while Im reading it, but it is still a classic for a reason.
