A Few Bites

Written by: Cybele Young

First line: It was time to eat.

Why you should read this book: A teenage sister persuades her little brother to eat objectionable foods by reframing them as more exciting foods through elaborate fantasy tales. Broccoli becomes the fuel that powers Cretaceous dinosaurs; carrots are Orange Power Sticks coveted by aliens. While she can't force little Ferdie to eat everything, Viola does manage to communicate both the power of imagination and her love for her little brother.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You don't care how many dinosaurs are involved, you're not eating broccoli.
