Seeking book recommendations for food-obsessed two-year-old. Topics can involve cooking, gardening, grocery shopping, eating, refusing to eat green eggs and ham, whatever--as long as there are colorful food pictures we can pretend to feed to my kiddo's stuffed animals.

Too funny: I Googled "spaghetti picture book" because I couldn't remember the title of the PB written by a BBer and all I could remember was I really liked it and it had spaghetti in it. I clicked on "images" and scores and scores of PB came up about spaghetti. Who'd have thought?

(I falter on the title/author only through my own faulty memory. Ugh. I hope someone else can remember. Published last year, I think.)

My absolute favorite story as a kid was Stone Soup. It's still being pubbed.

I have this awesome little book that's a sandwich, and each page you flip is an ingredient...as long as kiddo doesn't mind some of the icky stuff that Sam slips in between the layers!

We had a board book called Let's Nosh by Amy Wilson Sanger all about all sorts of Jewish foods.
Jamberry by Bruce Degan is very fun. (My husband loved it when my oldest was a toddler.) All about all kinds of berries and jam.

Peanut Butter and Cupcake by Terry Border is cute. Little Pea by Amy Krause Rosenthal. Yoko is excellent (but it's a Rosemary Wells, not Henkes.) I think I need a snack now...

I love FAST FOOD - photos are of fruit and veggies made into vehicles with little radish-people driving them. Adorable and very clever!

I've always loved How Are You Peeling? Foods with Moods by Saxton Freymann and Joost Elffers. It may not be what you're looking for since the fruits and veggies are portrayed with personalities and therefore you might not want to pretend to be feeding them to the stuffed animals. But it's bright and colorful and so, so creative. I'm always amazed at how the authors/photographers could get fruits and veggies to convey so much expression.

Julie and Ev, I am always fascinated by how creative some people are too and with vegetables!!! LOL.

There's always Veggie Tales! My kids loved those.

The Garden that We Grew by Eve Bunting
The Ugly Vegetables by Grace Lin.

Happy reading and munching! V.

Thank you so much! I was drawing a blank for our library run today, and now I have an awesome list of books to look for. Lots of books here I hadn't heard of or found on Google searches.

It's not possible for me to say too often how much I appreciate Blueboarders. :yourock

VEGETABLES IN UNDERWEAR is so cute!

Also, MONSTERS DON'T EAT BROCCOLI and CRAZY CRITTER CAFE. Oh, and DINNER AT THE PANDA PALACE.

And when she's ready for early readers, you can check out my forthcoming book called, "PIZZA! PIZZA!"

We picked up about a dozen of these books today, and they were a hit. I'm sure the kiddo's stuffed animals were grateful for the new menu options. :)

As for Jamberry--yes. We already had that one, but I agree that it's essential--even for kids who aren't obsessed with food.
