You Are What You Eat:: and Other Mealtime Hazards by Serge Bloch...Review & Giveaway

[9781402771309] 



I have such a witty book to tell you all about today...You Are What You Eat:  and Other Mealtime Hazards by Serge Bloch.  This book is so much fun and will surely spark some interesting conversations...



In this deliciously clever follow-up to Butterflies in My Stomach and Reach for the Stars, our young hero and his loyal dog, Roger, tackle another major aspect of life: eating. Mealtime should be a piece of cake, but this finicky eater eats like a bird. And that drives his mom bananas because he really should have three square meals a day. What will happen when he dines at the home of a friend whose mom is a real health nut? Maybe he'll discover that variety is the spice of life!

Children might find these sayings puzzling at first. But Bloch's witty and wonderful images, which mix whimsical line drawings with photographs of inanimate objects, make everything clear-and will leave readers of all ages pleased as punch.


This book is just so much fun.  A&W were confused about the expressions at first....4 year olds are just so literal!  Expressions like "Use Your Noodle" and "Cool as a Cucumber" are not things you are just born knowing!  Having the opportunity to get some serious chuckles with them as well as explain what this all meant was so much fun.  I am a huge fan of the illustrations as well.  All done in black and white with the exception of the object from the expression (a nut for "health nut" and a salt shaker for "grain of salt") make for some super creative pictures and are very eye catching.


You Are What You Eat is a great read and a fun way to get your children talking!  It is also a fun way to talk about eating a variety of different foods.  As they say, "Variety is the spice of life"!.  Serge Bloch is a very creative author and I can't wait to check out his other offerings.  You can find this one on Amazon...

When my oldest was three, he overheard someone say, "...stop on a dime." After a few days of trying to walk around town, with him looking at every little thing on the ground, I asked what was up. "I'm trying to find the dimes everyone stops on. We can be rich!"
