When it's time to eat, be a tough cookie and try something NEW!
Mealtime should be a piece of cake, but this finicky eater eats like a bird. Maybe he'll discover that variety is the spice of life!
They say "Don't judge a book by it's cover" for a reason. This isn't the healthy eating guide type book I thought it was going to be, though the quirky food odium's throughout this book would be a good starting point when teaching creative writing and thinking skills.
Although adults would like and appreciate the quirky odium's, I think that unless children are familiar with them, they wouldn't appreciate them and would lose interest in the book quickly. A one on one situation - adult/child would probably be needed until your child understands the odium's.
I love how the line drawn illustrations mixed with cleverly cropped photos match each odium. The actual physical size of this book (6x8) makes it hard to use as a shared, group book but it is the perfect size for a single pair of hands.
Our preschooler loved the pictures but is too young to understand the meaning of the odium's. I would recommend this book for school age children (and adults) in order for the odium's to get their due respect.
This is a great book for teaching the kids about different foods as the illustrations are photographs of food with overlaid drawings. I enjoyed the different expressions and idioms on each page but the kids were too young to understand the humour or the idioms themselves (pre school).
I love this book personally and think it would make a great gift for a school age child, it is brilliantly quirky. I ended up googling the author to find more books by him as I did enjoy it and found that Serge Bloch has won a gold medal at the Society of Illustrators. He also illustrates for The New York Times, The Boston Globe and The Washington Post, among other publications.
The illustrations really do make this story.
