Wearing food is much more fun than eating it in this sweet and sticky ode to toddler mealtime

Applesauce is fun to wear on your nose or in your hair. Toast is always nice and flat. What could make a better hat?
What’s more fun than eating your food? Wearing it, and toddlers are especially talented at that. This adorable picture book features a diverse cast of babies making a delightful mess at mealtime.


“In a silly, rollicking rhyme, Day explores the many ways that highchair-time can go awry. The titular phrase says it all: ‘Applesauce is fun to wear / on your nose / or in your hair.’"
