I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato
((by Lauren Child), Candlewick $15.99 Score:) If you know a finicky eater like Lola you might want to take a lesson from her big sister, Charlie! Lola has a mile long list of foods she will never eat. But fear not! Charlie dubs carrots "orange twiglets" and mashed potatoes as "cloud fluff". Now what would you rename a tomato? A deliciously wry treat! Helps kids understand that they are not the only ones in the world who doesn't like certain foods. 4-8

Do Donkeys Dance?
