My preschooler loves this book! We’ve read it at least 40 times in the past month! He loves that there is a superhero with a cape, he loves the animals and illustrations, he loves the word awesome, he loves that there is a statue, and he loves that even though Woody makes bad choices, Woody decides to make a better choice in the end and can be awesome too. Awesome! is a hit with my 3-year old!

The Picky Eater Book Review

If you have a picky eater on your hands, The Picky Eater may be a good discussion starter on how both kids and parents could better handle dinner time frustrations. #ThePickyEater #NetGalley #Capstone #ChildrensLit #PictureBookThe Picky Eater

Piper is a wonderful piglet. However, as many frustrated parents may relate to, Piper is rather picky about the foods she eats. Unlike most picky eaters who prefer specific foods, Piper prefers foods that only start with the letter “P.” Pizza, pancakes, peas, pasta – as long as it starts with a “P” Piper will eat it.

After numerous requests for Piper to eat the dinner served to her, Piper’s mom finally has had enough. She tells Piper she doesn’t have to eat, but she cannot talk, not even one word, if she doesn’t eat. After several quiet dinners, Piper finally tries the food served to her. And many parents won’t be surprised by Piper’s reaction – hey! she actually likes other foods!

As a parent, I’m not keen on the idea of banning my child from talking because they’re not eating. However, the book does get it’s point across: it’s good to try new foods and not be so picky. It also realistically shows that picky eating can be frustrating for parents.

If you have a picky eater on your hands, The Picky Eater may be a good discussion starter on how both kids and parents could better handle dinner time frustrations.
