Anteaters Eat Ants - What do you eat?

Anteaters eat ants all afternoon
Bears have berries with honey for breakfast
Cows chew their cud in the open fields
Donkeys dine on dry straw for their dinner....

This is the begining of a journey where children encounter animals and what they eat. It is in an alphabetical form and ends with the child and what he/she eats. It has a bit of rhyme and a sing-song feeling to it and I imagined it with fun and fanciful collage & watercolour illustrations. I wrote it for my boys who are three, because this is something they are interested in at the moment, namely animals and food, and I realized that there aren't many books addressing this topic. So the book would be for 2-5 yr olds, and would be a full 32 page title.
