Van Fleet returns with another winning combination of interactive elements and buoyant rhyme as he explores an array of animal mouths: “Bunny mouth nibbles,/ Tiger mouth crunch,/ Hungry alligator mouth—/ munch, munch, munch!” he writes as friendly animals appear in a row, with readers helping the gator gobble some apples via a tab. Other nifty moments include a pelican’s mouth that opens 90 degrees to show just how many fish it can fit inside and a beaver that makes a ratcheting noise as it chomps on a log. Ages 2–6. (Aug.)
