YUCK! by Mick Manning

YUCK!

Age Range: 3 - 5

KIRKUS REVIEW

An enjoyable gross-out game to share with very young listeners—with a bit of natural history thrown in. Set to a rhythmic commentary, oversized splashy watercolors depict in close-up a set of young animals, mostly birds, gulping down a worm, a rat, a fish and like food, live or far otherwise: “What’s for supper? This baby slurps a rotten egg. A rotten egg all stinky and smelly? That’s not our baby’s supper! YUCK!” So, after all that, what’s baby’s supper? “Milk! Mmm, warm and creamy.” And what would all those other babies say to that? You guessed it. This isn’t going to convince picky eaters to change their ways, but rare is the toddler who won’t chime in delightedly on the delicious exclamatory chorus. (Picture book. 3-5)
