Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3—Before his appetite was whetted by the taste of a tofu dog, the picky eater in this picture book subsisted on meals of macaroni. The boy narrates his gradual transformation in a humorous story that uses 31 idioms related to food. "Use your noodle!" his mom says, "People need three square meals a day." His dad, the couch potato, warns him his goose will be cooked if he lives on macaroni, and his sister, who eats like a horse, says things to him that he needs to take with a grain of salt. Mixed-media illustrations—color photographs and black pen-and-ink drawings—and the long-nosed dog add to the humor and playfulness of this story. By the end of the book, feelings of frustration are replaced with feelings of pride. Mom is pleased as punch that her son has realized that variety is the spice of life. Combine this book with Michael Wright's Jake Goes Peanuts (Feiwel & Friends, 2010) or Jackie French's Too Many Pears (Star Bright Books, 2003) for having fun with language.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada

Have a picky eater? Want to teach idioms? Then You Are What You Eat: and Other Mealtime Hazards is The Book for you!

Serge Bloch crafts a fun tale about a picky eater while teaching us about idioms through many colorful examples. I'm a big fan of picture books in high school and college classes - a great way to build vocabulary and background knowledge through reader-friendly text that is often sophisticated beyond the experience of our youngest readers, yet 'fun' for older readers. Give book-talks about picture books for your older students and they'll be hooked!!

This cute book, with its diminuitive size, engaging story, creative artwork & illustrations, and MANY examples of idioms, has earned a spot in both my classroom collection for independent reading AND my instructional toolbox when teaching vocabulary, exploring figurative language with students, and supporting ESL learners.

I thought this was such a cute book I got one for each of my grandchildren. Alas, they show no interest. One child is 3 the other 6. In the other family they are 2 and 4, and no interest there either.
