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.
The illustrations in this book were so cute and whimsical, and a child would easily get the message that vegetables are a good source of nutrition and health :) I read this when my 7 year old wasn't home but I will read it to her when she gets back and I know she will love it! I am sure she will try to tell me the story using the pictures! I definitely want to read more of the Delta stories :) Very well written and sure to delight children!
***I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an open and 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.
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.
herself, talking about her not liking her vegetables and only really wanted the chicken wings until one day
she found herself in a lot of tummy pain and did not want to play or eat and found that however she tried
to lie down and rest because of the pain from not eating her veggies and more good news came out of this
but I cannot tell you,right? You need to buy this book for yourself and kids and read it,okay?
I really enjoyed this sweet dog story and it's lessons about one needs to eat their veggies. So, I
recommend this book for parent(s) to read to their loved ones and perhaps even for the,selves if they are not fond of eating vegetables! I received this great book for free and in exchange I am doing two reviews for her and you, the readers! Great job Skylar! By Angela
