Food Face

​By Carrie Solomon

In Food Face, “playing with your food” takes on a whole new meaning through a series of easy-to-follow, illustrated recipes. Whimsical characters composed of ingredients demonstrate a fun way to think about food, inviting children into the process of cooking. The colorful photographs of ingredients and prepared foods create before-and-after connections and encourage edible experimentation with color, shape, and line.

Food Face is part of Set I in the Artists’ Board Book Series. Combining the conventions of artists’ books with those of children’s board books, the Artists’ Board Book series was inspired by the delight and creativity with which young children visually and physically explore books. These books offer physical experiences with art for lookers and readers of all ages.
