When Suziw got in touch to ask if I would be interested in reviewing one of her books I jumped at the chance as I have been a fan of children’s literature since falling ‘in love’ with the Gruffalo while I was a registered child minder.The things Evie eats is written by Suziew and has amazing illustrations by Lillian Dawson.
The book tells the story of Evie, who is a very fussy eater, preferring to play with rather than eat her food. When Evie says that she wants to eat flowers her family cleverly make her food into flower shapes making it attractive and more appealing she then eats everything
This is a delightful book with fantastic illustrations of familiar items that children will recognise and so can be encouraged to look for and point out to an adult reader, therefore aiding communication skills
I would recommend this book this book to any parents, but it could be especially useful to parents and carers who have a fussy eater as it may encourage the child to try new foods and give the adults inspiration to make food fun.
I have written a blog post on fussy eating titled, how to avoid do I have to eat all this?
Disclosure: I was sent this book for the purpose of the review, but all opinions are my own.
Things Evie eats can be purchased for £6.50 from Beresford Publishing house or visit www.suziew.com where an accompanying free activity pack can be obtained also.
