Got a reluctant listener at your house? But probably not a reluctant donut eater? Pop out this little wonder and watch what happens. Those eyes are going to get big and that little brain is going to ask the big question - exactly what is that? Can I eat it? It sure looks like a lot of fun!
And the laughs will begin. This is a board book thank goodness so if they decide to sink their teeth into it just to be sure it isn’t their favorite donut, it will rise to the occasion and just be left with some tooth marks that may become a family treasure.
So what goes on in a book shaped like a donut you might ask. We kick off with a mouth watering picture of a glazed donut. (Do not read this book when you are hungry.) That’s a pretty good start and from there we turn the page and begin the fun. This is a guessing game book.
You get a clue and of course, a fabulous picture of a donut, and then you try to guess what kind of donut you are looking at. Now, if you’ve been around the donut counter a few times you might not have any trouble seeing that this donut is a blueberry donut, but imagine the fun your preschooler is going to have trying to figure it out and remember all the kinds of donuts they’ve seen at the donut store in those fabulous trays of donuts all rowed up and waiting to be eaten…by them.
Page by page reveals a parade of fabulous confections. The clue and the donut illustration for each donut starts the game and then the turn of the page gives you your answer and a whole (not hole) new donut to guess.
Talk about yummy!
