"As a new mom, the prospect of feeding my baby food for the first time was daunting. I browsed several sites online to learn how other parents taught their kids to try new food, but nothing really stood out. With Read Them and Eat Books, I finally found a fun way to engage my toddler while showing him that vegetables are just as fun to eat as fruits and sugars! My son particularly loves story time, and I thought that mixing his favorite activity together with feeding time was a fun and creative way to get him to eat everything. I can't wait to see him finish everything off his plate as he advances to new foods. . . or should I say page?"
— Christina Kim with son, Jeremy (9 months)
"My son Liam enjoys looking at the pictures while eating and listening to us read the story. The book is so easy to clean. Our son often gets other books and toys so dirty when he's eating, so having a book easy to clean helps a lot!
— Renee Hulsmann and son, Liam (14 months)
"Read Them and Eat Books is a very unique idea that I haven't seen, and there's nothing more frustrating when your child doesn't eat. My son was never a picky eater until recently, and this book helped him focus on eating."
— Jennifer Flowers with son, Aidan (5 years)
"It was like no other book that I have ever interacted with before, and let me tell you, I have interacted with a lot of books. . . We got to spend time together, we got to eat food and have fun."
— Joel Slater with son, True (3 years)
"Our son Giovanni is now old enough to be “reading” books. He has been loving the RTAE books simply for flipping through the pages. He calls it the “Choo choo” book."
— Anthony Lombard and son, Giovanni
(2.5 years old).
"I definitely can see myself getting creative with food using this because I love the idea of creative, beautiful food, but I am not about to do it if it's just on a plate. With this, I can see myself using a carrot coming out of her [Sally of Sally Strands and Her Wacky Hairstyles] hand, which could be a wand. . . so it helps me out in that way. . . I would use Sally as my model."
— Erika El-Ansary with daughter,
Isabelle (3.5 years)
"What stands out to me about this product is that it is interactive. As a parent of a picky eater it's nice to do something fun with my kid to get her to eat instead of force feed her spoonfuls of food."
— Ilene Feng with daughter, Zoey (3 years)
