PreSchool-K–The cover of this brief introduction features an enticing dish piled with fried chicken, collard greens, and coleslaw. The text has a singsong quality: "When I wake up I smell biscuits/and gravy for our grits./I say thanks for smokey ham/cut into little itty bits." While the rhyme scheme is inconsistent, resulting in occasional unevenness, Sanger's three-dimensional collage images using wood, plastic, fabric, paper, and cross-stitching are wonderful. The board-book format would at first indicate that the audience for this book is infants and toddlers, but the text and the abstract nature of the illustrations make it a better choice for older children. The foods mentioned are listed on the back cover with a short explanation of each item. This offering could be used for curriculum units on food and culture.–Mary N.
