Open wide—it's time to eat! Fussy babies may not be interested in food themselves, but they might want to share a spoonful with absolutely anyone else! There's a spoonful for Mommy, one for the fish, for the fly in the corner, even the lady in the picture. With bright, engaging illustrations, a die-cut open mouth to feed, and just enough silliness, this fun board book is bound to make dinner entertaining for your stubborn baby. Hooray—you ate it all!
