What the Kids Read: Animals are Delicious

Animals are Delicious is a boxed set of three fold out board books, by Sarah Hutt, Dave Ladd and Stephanie Anderson. Designed to help children learn all about the food chain in three different habitats.

Athena will sometimes go and show him the pictures in a book, or point things out to him when I am reading with them both.

It’s a nice catchy rhyme and the story is about helping the reindeer get to the sleigh on…
