A bright and simple concept book takes readers through a noisy, smelly, sudsy, cluttered, and thoroughly enjoyable kitchen.

"The dishwasher is loud.
The counter is cluttered.
The blender is noisy.

The sandwich is cut.
The bags are plastic.
The milk is spilled.

The popcorn is popping!"

Through breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert, the kitchen is filled with interesting sights, smells, sounds and tastes. On this delicious trip through the kitchen, detail-rich scenes will delight young children as they recognize familiar foods and objects and learn new words to describe them. There's lots of fun to be had in the room where the syrup is sticky, the candy is hidden and the pie is cherry!
