From the creators of The Little Book of Backyard Bird Songs

Follow Rabbit and her hungry friends in their mealtime adventures!

This delightful picture book helps to promote healthy and positive attitudes to food through simple proven strategies. It will help take the stress out of meals for both parents and children. Eat nuts with squirrel, wash the mud off with piggy, get ready with penguin chicks, and get down to it with chipmunk, lemur and stork.

Try not to guzzle, or eat with a slurp
Or finish your meals with a fart and a burp.
Look at this chipmunk just stuffing her face
With nut after nut -- will she run out of space?

And then caress the rabbit's fur and the penguins' soft feathers, and enjoy your food.

A book perfect for parents who want to be closer to their children, while also encouraging them into healthy and positive activities for eating.

The book features a group of 6 attractive animals doing natural things, related to food. It has an amusing, rhyming text opposite a winning picture of a familiar animal, and a die-cut space in the photograph for some appropriate, faux "fur" or "feathers" to poke through, and to be touched, stroked and enjoyed by the child. Additional foil stamping adds the sparkle of snow, starlight and moonlight. It is a hardcover board book, with rounded corners and very endearing text and photos.

Feeling Hungry will be family favorite.

  • rhyming text is mostly light-hearted instruction about mealtime manners.

Andrea Pinnington and Caz Buckingham have one main objective -- to inspire the next generation to get out and appreciate the natural world. The wonder of the sound book format is that it allows them to take children and their families to places they may never visit in a wonderfully multi-sensory and immediate way. Caz Buckingham and Andrea Pinnington are the founders of Fine Feather Press, which promotes a love of nature in children from an early age. They live near Farnham, UK.

[Review of UK edition:] With a rhyming text and appealing photographic images of a series of animals in natural surroundings, this board book explores choices of food, getting ready for a meal -- washing hands, helping lay the table, good table manners, being prepared to try new foods and enjoying a family meal, each presented alluringly for little humans... Adding to the fun for young children is the touch-and-feel element on each spread. Adults whose small child finds mealtimes challenging might well find this a helpful book to share; however there's plenty of language development potential even if this isn't the case. - Jill Bennett, Red Reading Hub
