Eating healthy just got a lot funnier with Green Gooey Goop by Anna C. Morrison.
In this rhyming story, a girl is served a different kind of meal by her mother who is sharing with her the importance of eating all those green fruits and vegetables. This green gooey goop is whirled up and served in a huge cup with hilarious results.
What a blast this book is. Morrison definitely knows what will relate well to children. I am pretty sure those healthy smoothies look like “green gooey goop” to most youngsters. With her zany creativity, the author is able to highlight all those healthy foods, while acknowledging how kids could feel when presented with such a concoction.
The artwork of Alexander Morris is perfect for Green Gooey Goop. The wavy lines, the wide-eyed expressive faces, and his vibrant mix of colors is the perfect complement to Morrison’s entertaining story.
Kids will eat this one up!
