Editorial Reviews

Review

Great stories to use with young children. The books are made of sturdy cardboard and feature a mixture of familiar and unfamiliar age-appropriate scenes and pictures. Each page has a statement - for example 'elephant has floppy ears' - and the opposite page folds out to reveal the baby and the repetitive 'just like me!' that features in the title. The physical characteristics of these books make them appropriate to use with very young children and toddlers. The thick pages are easy to turn, the fold out flaps add the element of surprise and the statements are repetitive. The bright colours and simple illustrations are attention-grabbing. The books are relatively small which makes them easier for little hands to to hold and carry around as independence develops. -- Margo Turnbull Early Talk 2007 Part of the delightful 'Just Like Me' series. The themes and charming drawings are sure to engage the attention of the very young and provide lots of scope for adult-child interaction. Nursery World 20071018

Format: Board book
The babies and toddlers in this sturdy board book are not being tucked into bed; they're "tucking into" food.

Real whole foods too. Terrific!

We influence young children quietly, often inadvertently, with books.

We can choose to glorify Candyland, exalt the very hungry caterpillar's strange diet, and promote ice-cream therapy for all manner of emotional upsets,

or,

we can take notice as we unthinkingly program young children to crave worthless foods too much and instead get them used to better choices.

Later in life, they won't need to battle the effects of this book,Tucking In!

Right from the start, its positive attitude supports reasonable eating habits.

(I wouldn't rant so if this book weren't one of just a few sensible food related books for the youngest children, but there aren't a lot of them so it stands out.)

Jess Stockham, the creator of this book, knew what she was doing with content and format.

She makes excellent use of flaps here, not just to keep little fingers busy because flaps are fun, but to lend a bit of oomph to the comfortable surprise under each one.

An inviting, repetitive pattern on five spreads of strong, exceptionally thick pages, and lighter weight flaps involves toddlers in experiencing the book --turn to an animal enjoying its appropriate fare, lift the flap, discover one of five ethnically diverse babies or toddlers who likes the same food, and join in on the cheerful "Me Too! response.

A good mix of animals, foods and children:

An adorable mouse "likes tasty oats." Lift the flap-- "Me too!" -a bibbed baby messily spooning oatmeal.

"Lamb likes warm milk." Lift the flap-- "Me too!!

In this case, "Tucking in" is a reference to food that one eats, not a bedtime ritual. My daughter loves this book, and likes the fold-out flaps. I like that it shows a mother nursing her child in such a straightforward fashion.

My daughter couldn't get enough of this book until she was about 18 months old and eating became more routine.
