Praise for Yummy Tummy Food
As the mother of grown children, I think Yummy Tummy Food is a delightful way to illustrate to younger children how the body works. I can’t wait to read it to my grandchildren! The text and pictures show how the process of digestions takes place and the happy results at the end of the story! The complete diagram and Q&A section at the end are sure to generate “stimulating” conversations between child and parent.
Yummy Tummy Food is the only children’s book I’ve seen that explains the digestive process, from table to toilet, in a fun, easy way for kids to grasp. The beautifully illustrated bright pages capture children’s attention and their curiosity as they learn about the importance of good foods to eat and the healthy process of digestion and elimination. The catchy phases on each page could easily turn into a happy tune the child might sing while eating. I look forward to sharing this with my grandchildren, great niece, and my friend’s children. Great job Mardell!

My 4 year old could not put this book down! He loved the colorful pages, traveling through the tummy with the different types of food, and wanted to read it over and over again. The question/answer section & diagram in the back was very beneficial and guided me through the questions my son had that I was not sure how to answer them on my own. I would highly recommend this book for parents to read to their children!

This is a kid friendly, very delightful way to teach children what happens to food after they eat. My grandkids especially like the part about waving bye bye to the poop!

When I was a child I imagined the inside of my body to be a dark scary place. How everything worked was a mystery. If I’d had a book like Yummy Tummy Food when I was little my imagination would have been sparked into rays of rainbow understanding taking away all fear of what’s inside. Yummy Tummy Food is a treasure!
