The book starts out with a definition of what the word superlative means. The second page says superlatives help us describe foods. I think that statement might be a little misleading to children. It sounds like superlatives are only used to describe foods.
The pictures are marvelously done. The language is great for children, geared towards reading out loud to young children. The book asks questions of the reader, which is great to get them to participate and to think.
This book is a great way to explore the senses with children. It explores sight, taste, touch, smell, and hearing through the use of food. I don’t know that I would read it to a kid right before bedtime though, because all that yummy food is going to make them hungry! It would be great to read during the daytime, before a snack or meal time. I think it may be a great way to help get picky eaters interested in trying new foods as well.
