I’m a huge fan of ethnic foods, however any attempts to get my 2-year-old to try curry or sushi has failed miserably. Well, I may just have found a solution that requires neither cooking, nor the hurling of unusual foods in the nice, quiet restaurant. Check outcool boutiquePokka Dots’ offering of world snacks board books by Amy Wilson Sanger. They include artwork so vivid and inviting that my stomach growls just looking at them. The series includes books onSoul Food,Sushi, and Dim Sum, just for starters. (Get it?) It’s a great way to expose your child to the cuisine of different cultures, perhaps eventually off the pages as well. If you’re feeling extra ambitious, you could combine reading time with a food sampling. Thank goodness for take-out! -Kristen
