Seriously, You Have to Eat by Adam Mansbach
Published by AKASHIC BOOKS
Most of us with kids, nieces and even grand offspring, have gone through that delightful stage when our charge simply refuses to eat anything. They seem to run on air (or toast) and lunch boxes come back from school and daycare still completely packed. In our household we joke about taking the apple out for a walk, it seems to leave the fridge in the morning, go to school and return safely to its abode in the afternoon. If this is your household too, then this book is right up your alley.
Filled with vibrant, sharp images of familiar birds, rabbits, pandas and more, this book follows the journey of an eloquently, rhyming, and ultimately frustrated parent trying to feed their child. Anything. Ultimately giving in by providing a pancake supper, the book continually points out the need to eat.
This book is one that you can enjoy with the source of your frustration, or to use as a teaching tool on health for pre-schoolers, it certainly struck a chord in our "he only eats white food" household.
