In addition to writing gift guides involving price point, y’all asked if I could do gift guides based on age range. Now, the kids closest to me are 5 and 2. However, I wanted to gather some books to choose from for the kids in your life.

Some of these books live on our shelves while others came upon recommendation!

Who are these food books for kids actually for?

We’ve gathered nine food books for kids. Some are for toddlers through elementary age kids. Others are for young to middle-grade readers (so basically any children who are in elementary into middle school.)
