Infant & Toddler Storytime: Let’s Eat!

Since “Reading is Sooooo Delicious” this summer, we finished off our spring session of infant toddler storytimes with yummy stories about food.  To access any of the titles in our library catalog, click on the picture of the book.

Books We Read

Tickle Tum is a fun, rhyming look at eating time with a toddler — you may even pick up some new ideas to get your child to eat at home.  One Little Spoonful is another look at encouraging little ones to eat their lunch – and since it names various parts of the body it’s a fun way to bring that knowledge to your little one.  Brownie and Pearl Grab a Bite is a bright and colorful look at what a girl and her cat enjoy for lunch.

Flannelboard Story

This flannelboard story was inspired by a wonderful picture book, Lunch, and is a great way not to just get your little ones naming fruits and vegetables, but also learning their colors.

Film We Watched

Our film was based on probably the best-loved story about eating!  How can you have a food storytime and not include everyone’s favorite caterpillar?  This is a really wonderful video adaptation, and the DVD also has some other wonderful Eric Carle stories on it.

Jennifer D. is a Senior Librarian of Youth Services . When she was young, she was once grounded for reading too much. Things haven’t changed much since then and she loves escaping into a good story. When she’s not reading she enjoys watching old musicals, scouring flea markets, taking way too many photos and letterpressing. If she could have any pet she wanted she would have a wombat or a manatee.
