his board book features mouthfuls of fun for toddlers. Pictured here are a collection of critters who nibble, munch and crunch their way through a bunch of tasty goodies. And when they aren't eating, the animals are laughing, hiccupping, whistling and singing various melodies to amuse themselves.
h, yes, there are also a few creatures who use their mouths to smile, pout, prattle and shout. The simple idea here is to show that your mouth can be used for more than just eating. That being said, though, the interactive parts are sturdy tabs that do focus on animals chomping away on edible goodies. By far the best one is a pelican enjoying a seafood dinner. Pull the tab back and forth and you'll see that this bird can accommodate quite a bill full of fish! Actually the little beaver chomping on a log is pretty cool too!
ome interactive books can be rather fragile but this one will stand up to heavy use without any problems. The tabs are large and easy for little fingers to grasp and all the moveable parts are very sturdy too, so munch away!
