Bon Appetit!

Summary:

Matilda Macaroni doesn't want chicken nuggets or boxed macaroni or takeout or cereal anymore. But her parents wouldn't try any new foods. Not even Grandma Macaroni's jambalaya! For Matilda it was heaven. She tried new foods every chance she got. Then she went into the kitchen. She learned to read recipes, got ingredients at the farmer's market, and cooking help from Grandma. Then she announced to her parents that she was cooking dinner that night. Would they eat what she served? 


Parent Perspective:
Oh, what fun! The story turns the idea of picky eaters on its head in a way that will encourage kids to take the lead in trying new foods. I especially loved that the family started cooking together. Lots of great messages without banging the reader over the head! Highly recommended.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Matilda is spunky and knows what she wants! She might even inspire kids to take the spatula into their own hands.

Content Awareness Factors:

None!


Type of Book:
This is a picture book that makes the parents the picky eaters!
Educational Themes:

Have fun. Plan a meal as a family and cook together, take a family cooking class. Try different types of cuisine at local restaurants. At a minimum, you can try the quiche recipe in the back of the book.
