Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

For families that place good food high on their list of priorities, educating their wee ones about the joys of sushi may be far more important than teaching about bunnies and balls and flowers. But even those who don't know futomaki from hatahata will relish the playful rhymes and lush collages in Amy Wilson Sanger's wonderful First Book of Sushi.
Miso in my sippy cup,
tofu in my bowl.
Crab and avocado
fill my California roll.
English-speaking tots will love wrapping their lips around Japanese words such as tekka maki, ebi, and wasabi, and will soon be joining in the bouncy recitation of sushi favorites for the very young. This bright little board book, with its gorgeous array of patterns and textured, mixed-media collages, looks good enough to eat. And who knows, it might even inspire picky eaters to try a little egg tamago or squishy salmon roe (otherwise known as ikura)! (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter

From Publishers Weekly

Tricycle Press kicks off a new series called World Snacks with First Book of Sushi by Amy Wilson Sanger. A simple rhyming text demonstrates the different kinds of sushi children can eat: "I'll take yellowtail hamachi/ and a red maguro slice./ Big, BIG futomaki/ has so many grains of rice!" A pronunciation guide would have been helpful for novice diners, but the bright collage illustrations help to identify the menu items.

My kids got this book when they were about 6 months old. They loved the rhythm even then, and it's still one that they pick up and ask for now, at 18 months. I love it as a parent - I think the author is clever and talented!
It will make much more sense, both rhythmically and logically, if you remember to include the line on the back cover as the end of the book.
On some of her other books, she includes either definitions of the food or pronunciation guides - this has neither, so I may be butchering the words, but no one seems to care.

I bought this for my nephew for Christmas when he was eight months old. He is now 15 months old and has it read to him every night. He loves this book. He often grabs it from his book table. It's the perfect book for small children - short, colorful and rhymey. Just remember that the book actually ends on the back cover, which I thought was a little strange. My sister has memorized this book since she reads it every night and so have I. I plan on giving this book at baby showers.

Like the book says, "Someday I'll eat with chopsticks / But today just with my hands." Why should the preschool set be limited to hardened paper stock books with colors, shapes, letters, numbers and animal. Future Foodies need books like this. The graphics are bold and bright, and the rhymes are fun. With "miso in my sippy cup / tofu in my bowl", this book on your cribs will make for tickled ribs.

This is a wonderful book. Our 8 month old loves the pictures and rhymes. Wonderful way to expose our son to a type of food we love. We plan on taking the book with us on our next trip for sushi.

I bought this book for my daughter when she was not even a year old (truth be told, I bought the book for myself). She is almost 3 this year and still loves her sushi book. Her favorite parts are the wasabi, hot, hot, hot and big, big, futomaki. Not only does she love the words and rhythm of the book but also she adores the illustrations; every corner of every page is filled with something interesting for her to look at. This book also encouraged her to try some of my sushi, which she loved almost as much as the book. I would recommend this book to every parent and have often given it at baby showers.

Better than your typical baby book. A subject and rhymes that parents will enjoy. Give it to your favorite sushi loving new parents, along with the sushi bib and burpcloth (available from select online baby stores)

My daughter got this book a few days ago for her first birthday, and my husband and I already really love it! My daughter really likes the bright colors and likes turning the pages. It really is a beautiful book.

This is a fun twist on your typical children's book. Its got colorful pictures and whimsical rhymes, but the funniest part is the subject matter -- sushi: "I'll take yellowtail hamachi / and a red maguro slice. / Big, BIG futomaki has so many grains of rice!"

I'm sure my kids don't understand exactly what what's being talked about (and sometimes I don't either). But there's a pleasant pace to the rhymes and the words are fun to say out loud ("tekka maki" and "kappa maki" sound a bit like the nonsense phrases of Dr. Seuss).

Don't forget to notice that the last line of the story is actually on the back of the book. The first couple times I read it to my kids I didn't see that, and the book seemed to come to a puzzlingly abrupt end.
