Description Description Mealtimes can be extremely trying for parents and toddlers alike, especially when a child is reluctant to try new foods. In this lighthearted and encouraging board book, Kitty is no longer a baby, so she is learning how to use a fork and a big-kid cup when it’s time to eat. She is also learning to clean up any messes that are left behind, and she’s even learning to try foods that she’s never had before. The reassuring message shows young readers that it’s fun to try new, colorful foods, and that it’s also okay to make messes, but to clean up afterward. Engaging prompts throughout the story encourage children to follow along with Kitty as they “Point to the green plate” and “Clap for Kitty for using a big-kid cup!” Bright, colorful artwork and simple text bright to life Kitty’s mealtime experience in an exciting, kid-friendly way, and a step-by-step summary at the end of the book highlights Kitty’s accomplishments and provides a simple guide for parents and their children who are new to independent eating.
