"Animals like to eat,
So do you.
Some nibble,
Some gulp.
                                        Some chomp,
                                        Some chew!"
     How do the animals eat? This simple rhythmic story is a delight to read. Chipmunks, beavers, cows, frogs, pigs, and more, all have their own way of eating.
"How does a cow eat?
Moo-o-o-o Chew
Moo-o-o-o Chew."
     This story goes through 10 animals, and then does a recap of the animals and the way they eat. Which makes this story excellent for young children and young readers. You can really evolve your preschooler in the story. During the recap have them tell how each animal eats. Preschoolers love to repeat what you say. With the right voice reflections on the animal noises, you can get a great rhythmic beat going. Your preschooler will certainly be chuckling by the end.
     Michael Rex does a terrific job of illustrating this story. The animals are large and loveable. The illustrations cover both sides of the open book, making it a great story for group reading. The illustrations are done in colored pencil and colored in using computer software, making the illustrations bright and bold. The text in this book also adds to the fun. Sever different fonts and colors are used for each eating action of the animals.
     I recommend this story for preschoolers of all ages. It is a story you preschooler will have you reading again and again.
