Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Much to his parents' chagrin, a bunny refuses to eat his vegetables. PW said, "Even picky eaters will find the message palatable in this zippy delivery." Ages 4-up.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-In this entertaining twist on the fussy-eater theme, children will discover that adults can also be picky about food. John, a young bunny, refuses to eat his vegetables. Frustrated, his father enlists the help of Uncle Bunny, who is left to care for his niece and nephews over the weekend with the implicit instruction that, "...John eats some of everything." By engaging the youngsters in rigorous physical activities such as soccer, tug-of-war, and mountain climbing, Uncle Bunny makes sure everyone becomes hungry, including John, who succumbs to his voracious appetite and digs into his veggies. However, as Uncle expounds on the need to eat vegetables, he manages to avoid eating his carrots. When confronted by his nephew, Uncle Bunny admits to his dislike for the root but tries some, agreeing, "...they're not bad." Gretz's watercolor illustrations are a perfect complement to the text. The portrayals of the bespectacled and bandanna-wearing uncle and the varied facial expressions of John are especially endearing. This book will be enjoyed by young children, and adults trying to prod finicky eaters can utilize it along with Vivian French's Oliver's Vegetables (Orchard, 1996) and Nicholas Heller's Peas (Greenwillow, 1993).

Format: Hardcover
Although my 5-year-old is not a picky eater, this engagingly presented tale has helped her to think about eating foods that she claims she does not like. As with John in the story, the lesson learned is that you cannot make a judgment until you have at least tasted the veggie in question. She still is not enthused about celery, but after reading Rabbit Food she was at least willing to taste it!
