Reading about eating

MANCHESTER - Chew on this: New York Times bestselling creator Matthew Van Fleet will be at the Northshire Bookstore on Saturday, Sept. 21 at 11 a.m. to talk about his new interactive novelty book all about eating.

From the creator of the New York Times bestselling Heads and Tails, comes Munch! It is a humorous look at how animals munch, crunch, and eat. In this hands-on read-aloud, tabs and textures animate the madcap antics of a cast of frolicking critters whose mouths are made to do more than eat.

Matthew Van Fleet's innovative books have been introducing children to basic concepts for almost 20 years. His unique formats invite toddlers to touch, press, pull, lift, and even sniff as they explore colors, shapes, numbers, letters, opposites, and more. His books include the New York Times bestsellers Tails and Dog as well as the Cat, Heads, and Alphabet. His books have sold more than three million copies.
