Book Description

Delta the dog loves lots of things: her parents, walkies, stinky socks and chicken wings. But there's one thing Delta doesn't like: when her parents slip vegetables into her dinner bowl. After a disastrous, cauliflower-infested birthday meal, Delta declares war on vegetables. She soon finds out that eating chicken wings everyday isn't as good as it's cracked up to be.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

This was a cute story with great illustrations. My children loved it and took turns reading it to one another. I look forward to reading more in this series.

This was a cute book in terms of both illustration and drawings. My kids were interested during the tell of it (though not necessarily eager to repeat it right away). The message (eat your veggies kiddos) is not uncommon, but telling it through the story of a fussy dog did actually make it more palatable for my kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun book with a 'healthy' message June 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Delta the Fussy Dog by Skyler Andra

Great illustrations, engaging narrative, and a healthful theme.

This is a fun book and presents the message about the health benefits of vegetables without being preachy. Parents can read this book to their children and give them this message effectively.

The diagnosis by the vet is a little over the top. :-)

(I downloaded this book in return for my honest review.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute illustrations! June 23, 2014
By thejem
Format:Kindle Edition
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

The illustrations that accompany this book are nice. This is a cute story about how eating vegetables is good for a dog's body [a concept easily transferred to our own human bodies], and shows how our parents have our best interests at heart when they sneak veggies onto our plates. Some portions of the language may be beyond the simple grasp of a 3-5 year old child and there are moments when I personally found the sentence structure to be awkward, but both of these can be easily adjusted by the reader/parent/librarian/teacher who is sharing the story. Lots of opportunity for a child to connect with the story [and, specifically, the character of Delta] in both comparison to themselves and in comparison to a pet. I would recommend this book to those who discuss pets and/or health choices with small children ages 4-7.

4.0 out of 5 stars A new take on getting kids to eat those veggies June 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a free copy of this for an honest review.

The most important thing in a picture book are the pictures, and these were colorful and fun. My daughter enjoyed flipping through the pages with me, excited to see what the cute Delta would do next. She loved the bright colors and enjoyed the characters in general.

The story itself made her think. A dog is served chicken wings and vegetables? Yep, it sounded crazy to me too (especially since dogs should never eat chicken wings.) But although this concept seemed out there at first, it did make my daughter pay attention. And the x-ray pictures of all those nasty chicken bones in the dog's stomach really caught her eye.

I really doubt this story will help her eat her vegetables more than before, but it was a fun read that she enjoyed. If nothing else, she now knows to keep her dog away from those chicken bones.
