Eating and Food

Mealtimes can be trying times for parent and child alike.  Whether your child is a fussy eater or eats a special diet, or even if their table manners are monstrous, sharing books about food and eating may help to make mealtimes a little easier.

T-Veg – Smriti Prasadam-Halls and Katherina Manolessou

Reginald is everything you would expect a T-Rex to be.  He has a fierce roar, he is strong and fast, but sometimes he feels very different from his T-Rex friends – especially at meal times.  When everyone else munches on juicy steak, Reginald would rather eat crunchy carrot cake.  This fun book about a vegetarian dinosaur is told in rhyme.
