"This baby slurps a rotten egg that is all stinky and smelly. That's not our baby's supper. Yuck!" With a funny and rhythmic text perfect for reading aloud, this fun "gross-out" information book for young children is about animal babies — a crow, lizard, osprey, toad, and owl -and the foods they like to eat — a worm tugged out of the ground, a stinky rotten egg, a spider with eight hairy legs, a whole raw fish, a crunchy beetle, and a furry rat. The authors' colorful artwork and natural history background make this book both lively and educational.
