Brilliantly fantastic. What a fun way to introduce our kids to the foods that WE love to eat. My daughter loves the illustrations, and we love being able to teach her words like quinoa, opah, and habanero.

"My Foodie ABC: A Little Gourmet's Guide" is a luscious looking, illustrated pasteboard alphabet of special foods that any child could learn to love with proper exposure. Written by famous gourmet chef Puck, "My Foodie ABC" covers delicious unusual foods from chantarelles to weisswurst, from jicama and opah to xuxu and yucca and nopales. Foods representing alphabet letters are accompanied by pictures, definitions, pronunciations, descriptions, and other miscellaneous facts. Additional foodie terms are also used, such as locavore, farmers' market, and vegetarian. All in all, "My Foodie ABC" is a first class effort to educate young taste buds while promoting literacy. "My Foodie ABC" is fun for both preschoolers and adults.

Format: Board book
My Foodie ABC is an excellent choice for gourmet parents and their babies and children. My three month old loves the simple, colorful, and tasty pictures. His shorter attention span can handle the concise food descriptions too. I love the fact that the book includes some very interesting and lesser known foods (I learned more about dragon fruit than I knew before!). I look forward to reading this book to my son when he's older too...when he can try some of the foods after or while we read!

This is a great book for kids and their adults. It's cute, funny, and informative. It could even turn kids on to new foods! The illustrations are charming, and the pronunciations are helpful for unfamiliar words.

This is a very cute book for those who know their way around the culinary arts. Not sure I want to teach my kids top of the line eating on my budget, but I always appreciate that they have broad and smart learning experiences. This book is just that!

Format: Board book Verified Purchase
This is a great little book for a foodie of any age. My husband and I are always looking for ways to include our son into our activities--especially important activities like learning to cook and enjoy healthy food. Our little guy is only 5 months old, but he loves looking at the brightly colored pictures. It's a durable board book so he is able to grasp the pages without damaging them. We talk about food in the kitchen while cooking together as a family. We often pull this book out and read it to him at the table while one of us preps dinner. From there we walk around the kitchen and talk about what foods we are preparing that night. But the book isn't only for little ones. My husband and I also learned a thing or two from the descriptions--like that saffron (S) comes from the red stigmas of a bright purple flower. As parents, we enjoy having a book that is a bit more complex than B is for ball etc. There's just enough trivia for each letter to keep Mom and Dad interested too. Overall I think this is a good purchase that will grow with your household and be appreciated for a long time. The only negative I can think of (and it's a very small one) is that the beautifully illustrated letters blend into the background a little more than they do in a conventional high contrast ABC book, which could be a bit challenging for an older child just learning to identify letters, but probably only slightly.
