Pick of the Week: Yum Yum! What Fun!

Yum Yum! What Fun! by Maraq Bergman, illustrated by Nick Maland (Greenwillow Books, 2009)

Katie, James, and their dog live next to the zoo. So, when they are busy baking, a few unexpected visitors from next door come visiting. The delicious smells from their baking end up attracting a big bear and Katie and James are worried the bear is hungry and looking to eat them! But, alas, the bear is only interested in eating what they are baking. This book is a lot of fun for preschoolers - containing repetition, plenty of humor, just a teeny bit of fright when the bear comes over, and a pleasant surprise. It just might inspire some baking and multiple readings!
