Book Details

A charming, heartfelt picture book debut from Su Youn Lee, Have You Eaten? celebrates one of the many ways we show love, by sharing food.

Coco loved sweet potatoes, and she loved to share them with everyone around her.

Coco the chipmunk is known for asking, "Have you eaten?" and sharing sweet potatoes. The other animals find Coco's question odd, but one day she shares her food with some animals who could use a friend. When Coco falls ill, her new friends come to care for her in the same way she taught them—by sharing food.

Inspired by a Korean greeting, this heartwarming story offers a fresh take on friendship and kindness.
