"Sharing a meal, nourishing bodies, and preparing food are essential pieces of human and cultural experiences; this sweet book makes clear that everyone is a part of that…In this installment in the We Are Little Feminists series, readers see feeding tubes, breast pumps and breastfeeding, and adaptive cutlery along with diverse representation of families and cuisines…Spare text makes use of alliteration and simple rhymes. What really sets this title apart, however, are the beautiful images, taken by various photographers." - Kirkus Starred Review

“The board book market offers vast, untapped opportunities to introduce babies, toddlers, and preschoolers to so many different kinds of people. I’m glad at least one series has the pluck and moxie to give kids a fuller first glimpse of the world.

…You just hit the board book jackpot.”

Seriously, if you haven’t taken a look at these books then I urge you to run, not walk, to your nearest library or independent bookstore and grab yourself some copies. Any baby shower you bring these to will instantly make you the coolest gift giver in the room
