I love books. Little Missy loves books. Reading to Little Missy is the best – especially when I can do sound effects and talk about the pictures. Leslie Petricelli is a current favorite author and illustrator. Her books are quite simple on the surface – with lots of repetition – but there is so much room for expanding on the simplistic dialogue and charming pictures, and lots of opportunity to elicit the giggles I so adore from Little Missy. Petricelli has a wry sense of humor in each of her books, and it’s on full display in Yummy Yucky... “Spaghetti is Yummy. Worms are Yucky,” and “Hamburgers are Yummy. Boogers are Yucky.” Come on! You have to laugh at that!
