Ketchup on Your Cornflakes? by Nick Sharratt

This delightful book for preschoolers gives children a chance to play with their food (and other familiar items) without getting messy! Each page is split into two parts - dutch door style - and allows the reader to come up with some really silly ideas of what to do with food and other familiar items, like a hat or rubber duck. You can create pages like "Do you like ice cream on your head?" or "Do you like toothpaste on your apple pie?" The pictures are done in vivid, saturated colours that make the book really appealing to young readers. It's a great book that helps children make language predictions, encourages problem solving skills, and is just plain silly and fun to read. Where to Buy: This book was originally published in 1994, so it's not readily available in local bookstores. You can however find it on Amazon and eBay.
