This is an absolute delight for young readers. This playful picture book takes a unique approach to teaching the alphabet, introducing kids to animals and foods in a fun and engaging way. The illustrations are captivating, making it perfect for toddlers, while the clever use of words and quirky combinations will keep older kids entertained and educated. This book is not only entertaining but also an excellent tool for vocabulary building. I highly recommend it to teachers, librarians, booksellers and parents looking for an imaginative and educational read that will have kids giggling and learning at the same time.

Hold onto your hats, folks, because Do Newts Eat Noodles? is like an alphabet adventure on steroids! If you thought learning the ABCs was boring, think again. This book is the bomb! From crazy combos like "Do Pigs eat Pickles?" to mind-bending questions like "do vultures eat vanilla?", it's a wild ride through the alphabet that'll have kids laughing, thinking, and learning all at once. The illustrations are beyond adorable, and the words used here are so fun, they'll stick in your brain like glue. If you're a teacher or librarian, get this book in your classroom or library ASAP. Trust me; you'll be the hero of the storytime hour, and the kids will be grinning from ear to ear as they discover the wacky world of letters and words. This book is a blast, and I couldn't recommend it more!

I loved this book! As a long-time educator and librarian, I recommend this book to all Preschool, Kindergarten and 1st grade teachers to keep a copy of this book in your classroom. All librarians should also purchase a copy of this for a wonderful read aloud to the PreK, K and 1st grade students. I can just see in my mind a sweet group of students glued to the pictures as I read aloud to them. They would be answering each letter with a reply that would be a form of yea and nay! Such fun for students as they learn letters and other words! PS- teachers and librarians will also be smiling with the students at this one!

This is the wildest and the most hilarious alphabet book I have ever seen! Parents, and teachers, please beware: do not go into this book blind. Be ready to… have answers. Kids will have questions. I’m no kid and even I have questions. I have more questions that I can write here.
The drawings are adorable and quirky. The alphabet part is even more adorable and even quirkier. If there is a super fun way to approach alphabet learning, then I vote this book is it. I also vote that this is a fab book for those who are learning English as a second, a third, or a zillionth language. The words used there are fun. They are used in fun, quirky, and super weird ways – and to me, that looks like a combo that leads to remembering those fun words. Yeah, it might not be the most useful phrase to learn and to use a question of – do vultures eat vanilla? – but it sure serves the purpose of fab vocabulary building.
So, but the questions. The questions are still here. Do newts eat noodles? And do vultures eat vanilla? Those are some legit questions this book raises.

Do Newts Eat Noodles? (Kindle Edition)
by Cliff Beneventi
Actually a very cute and silly alphabet book. But this not only shows the letters, animals, and different food types the pictures are very silly, and engaging. I can see a teacher use this in the classroom to help kindergarteners learn their letters, their animals, and their different food types. It is cross cultural as well since some of the foods are not your normal American table fare. Its a great book to help provide cultural discussions, and broaden the exposure of different animals and foods to young children. It can also help English acquisition learners to see how letters sounds are similar and used in the English language.

Do newts eat noodles?
Do lions eat lemons?
Do iguanas eat ice cream?

This alphabet book won't answer those questions, but it will give you (wait for it) plenty of food for thought. The format is very simple (same question repeated for different animals and types of food), but the illustrations are clean and playful, and I particularly appreciated the focus on less common animals—we have lions and elephants, yes, but also jellyfish and otters and (of course) newts. And umbrellabirds! Today I learned that umbrellabirds exist.

Overall, a fun twist on a classic style and a good fit for the pre-kindergarten crowd.

Thanks to the author and publisher for providing a review copy through NetGalley.

Thanks, NetGalley! This is such a fun alphabet book! I enjoyed the unique animals and all the interesting foods they could eat if they ate things that start with the same letter as them. My daughter answered the question asked on every page (spoiler: it’s always the same question!) she loved the silliness of the combinations.

I highly recommend to families with young children, especially kids who are learning their alphabet!
