Denise' Fleming's Lunch is one of my favorite story time books as it covers many things which toddlers love and recognize, especially food and colors! Also, with the way that Fleming puts the color on one page and the fruit on the next, it allows the toddlers to guess what is coming. We all know how they love games!
The shapes are all cut with an AccuCut machine and decorated with puffy paint for the details (individual grapes, kernels of corn, apple leaves, etc.) I also didn't have access to a turnip die so ours is a radish cut from white and green felt. If you don't have access to the dies and aren't a fan of freehand cutting, Microsoft Publisher has a lot of these shapes that you can use as a pattern.
