A taste of Kentucky through singsong repetition. Singer/songwriter Johnette Downing serves up catchy verses to her fourth installation of taste exploration. The award-winning author tells what lucky children all over the state eat, giving each dish's significance later in a "word menu." Did you know that only Kentucky has a tradition of serving Derby Pie on Kentucky Derby Day or that it is the only state that offers Rolled Oysters? A different treat is presented for each day of the week, allowing young readers a seven-day trip for their taste buds.
