When Mama and Author Chenniah Patrick asked me if I would consider reviewing her new book, This Milk Tastes Good, I said yes without any hesitation.
Chenniah says the book was born from her singing this tune to her daughter, and as she grew older, she started humming it…..dad learned it as well!
This Milk Tastes Good! is a family-friendly nursery rhyme about breastfeeding from the baby’s point of view. This book features a black family promoting breastfeeding, I love it!
I enjoyed this book for so many reasons. I’m loving the black husband and wife team. Her husband is the illustrator, and they run a publishing company together. This book shows images of nursing in public as displayed on the cover. The pictures are bright and colorful, and the words are nice and big. I even like the font they used.
I love the drawings of mom and dad babywearing, dad wearing a shirts that supports breastfeeding. And a black family doing what is normal and natural. Breastfeeding! My kids really enjoyed flipping through this book, and having me read it to them.
A few lines from the book….
“This milk tastes good. This milk tastes yummy.”
My mama feeds me. She puts food in my tummy.”
Chenniah is set to record a YouTube video for the book so we can all hear the tune to the rhyme.
