Miller, Margaret. Baby Food. Book Review.


This is a great book for getting the concept of reading across to a one year old. Each double page has a close-up photograph of a baby doing something and a single word. The words are banana, spoon, cracker, bottle, yummy, and messy. The last two words take a little longer for the toddler to memorize but when she does, she is delighted with those pages. This became a book my granddaughter could “read” to me.

The photographs are bright and endearing. They feature children of different races. Children relate well to the words and pictures. However, if your baby is entirely breast-fed, she may not relate to the picture of a bottle. The board book is sturdy and just the right size for little hands.
