Yum Yummy Yuck
by Cree Lane and Amanda Jane Jones
In their hip and often humorous Instagram accounts, Amanda and Cree Jones invite the world into their life with two young kids. Now, the Joneses are sharing another experience–the struggle to keep their kids from putting everything they see into their mouths.
Using simple, bright illustrations, irresistible colors, gentle repetition, and a lighthearted tone, this stylish board book teaches babies and toddlers what they should and shouldn’t put in their mouths.
Delectable treats like an ice cream cone, a pear, and a donut are interspersed with not-so-yummy things kids find irresistible–like coins, boogers, and sand. Facing pages display the correct use of these items– boogers go in tissues, coins in a piggy bank, and sand in a bucket.
Designed to appeal to modern parents, this durable and attractive book will have kids and their parents going back to it and sharing in the fun of all the delicious and disgusting things kids like.
This book is so simple, yet it’s so cute. It’s perfect to share with those little ones who love putting everything in their mouths! Some of those things are yummy, but others are yucky! I think it’s the perfect board book to teach your kids not to eat band-aids….or sand…or other gross things!

Introduce little ones to beloved redheaded orphan Anne Shirley in Anne of Green Gables: A BabyLit® Places Primer. as they explore Prince Edward Island and the places that Anne loves. Jennifer Adams and Alison Oliver, with their words and bright illustrations, introduce toddlers to Anne’s home and her favorite pond, wood, field, garden, and the avenue to Avonlea. This delightful board book will captivate your brainy baby’s imagination, and yours.
My review of Anne of Green Gables A BabyLit Places Primer
As an Anne of Green Gables fan, I was excited to see how this classic novel translated into a board book for babies. I love that it (as well as the other books in the BabyLit series) introduce even the littlest of children to classic literature. The text and drawings are simple, yet they stay true to Prince Edward Island and Anne Shirley. I highly recommend this board book!
