Are You a Picky Eater?

15 Jan

Here’s a Geisel winner from last year.

Not only is it funny, but it has a basset hound. See the connection to my blog name?

The book begins with a survey to determine if you are a picky eater. The  five chapters of this book present scenarios where James’ father convinces James to eat something disgusting by presenting fanciful and gross kid-friendly alternatives. It reminded me a little of Lauren Child’s “I will Not Ever Eat a Tomato”, but for a slightly older crowd.

There is a lot that can be done to get kids writing with these two books.  In both cases, the format is simple enough to emulate so an individual or a class, could write their own version.
