Miso in my sippy cup,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

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.
We ordered this recently for a friend's daughter. I flipped through and they have changed it. The words on the back cover are no longer there, so it no longer says "Someday I'll eat with my chopsticks, but today just with my hands", so the book ends abruptly. Giving this new edition one star for leaving off the last line of the book.
Recently, however, I purchased a few more to have on hand for gifts and was shocked to find it had been published without its final page. All three books were missing the page that used to say: "Someday I'll eat with chopsticks, but today just with my hands." This line was the heart of the book! And also it no longer rhymes at the end! I even climbed up into my attic to pull out our old worn book to make sure I wasn't remembering it wrong. (I wasn't.)
This is a huge publishing error! I contacted the publishers, but never heard back.
The other downside to this new edition is that the colors on the cover are all faded, not the vibrant red, black and white that used to be so perfect for babies.
So, if you love sushi and need this book for your baby, make sure you buy a vintage copy with the bright cover. Good luck!
