A whimsical–yet factual–series of questions and answers about the things we eat... and don't eat!
Food critic Joshua David Stein whets the appetite of young readers with a wondrous and informative approach to talking about food. This humorous, stylized and entirely unexpected set of food facts will engage both good eaters and resisters alike. With questions both practical ("Can you eat a sea urchin?") and playful ("Do eggs grow on eggplants?"), this read-aloud text offers young children facts to share and the subtle encouragement to taste something new! Food and textile illustrator Julia Rothman brings an authenticity to the text that Stein has written from the heart, for his own three year-old and for pre-schoolers everywhere.
Created for ages 3-5 years

Publisher's Weekly: "In a series of linguistically playful questions and answers about food, journalist and restaurant critic Stein suggests an exchange between an insatiably curious child and a good-humored parent...Throughout, Rothman (Hello NY) uses a vintage-meets-modern aesthetic to lovingly detail mismatched table settings, vats of pickles, and knobby chicken fingers, adding greatly to the book's smarts-plus-style approach."
Starred Review from Kirkus: "Wordplay and food play combine as an artist and a food critic explore edibles well beyond peanut butter and jelly...cleanly drawn and colored meats, veggies, and condiments are both easily recognizable and yummy looking. Tempting fare for venturesome children..."
"Both fastidious young eaters and those with adventurous appetites will find something to enjoy in the stylish pages of Joshua David Stein's "Can I Eat That?", a picture book illustrated by Julia Rothman. For the picky child, the fun may be in expressing gleeful repugnance at the idea of eating ghastly things like sea urchin or cold jellyfish. Pint-size epicures will, by contrast, savor the consonant potential of dishes such as tonnato, tournedos and tostadas... The bright colors and clean lines of Ms. Rothman's pictures give a fun, hip feeling to this amuse-bouche for 3- to 5-year-olds." -The Wall Street Journal
