Staff Reviews

Do you know a kiddo who can’t get enough kitchen action? This ABC book is perfect for budding chefs, or even just kids who spend a lot of time in the kitchen during meal prep. The alphabetical pastas range from spaghetti to ditalini to the occasional non-pasta pasta accessory (basil, pecorino and parmigiano),  and each is assigned a circus role. The illustrations combine photos of the actual food item with  thick-lined  drawings, turning them into the role. Great fun for foodies—or for the kind of kids who live on macaroni and buttered noodles! 

— From Ann's Picks


A is for angel hair acrobat
M is for Macaroni the Magician
and T is for tortellini trapeze artist.

It's an ABC circus that's good enough to eat.
