The holidays are here and you know what that means: fun and “interesting” gatherings with family and friends, a time when we’re especially happy to hear these two little words: LET’S EAT!!
When all your favorite dishes magically appear on the table, where will you sit?
I love when we visit my grandma Mabel.
I get to sit at the little kids’ table!
The young narrator in this hilarious new rhyming picture book, The Little Kids’ Table, couldn’t be happier. After all, he knows he and his cousins are in for a rollicking good time. Unlike his parents, who must sit at the grown-ups’ table (“so shiny and fancy,/and has pretty flowers from my aunt Nancy”), they will, among other things, get to fiddle with their flatware:
Next to our forks we have spoons at our places.
We try to get them to stick to our faces.
First you breathe on the spoon, then press it on tight.
It’ll hang from your nose if you do it just right.
