Little Green Donkey

We rated this book:


The Little Donkey loves to eat grass. He thinks grass is tangy, sweet, and so, so juicy. Try as she might, Little Donkey’s mother cannot get him to try other foods. Grass is all he’ll eat. When he goes to the pond to get a drink of water, he sees his reflection and has quite a shock. His ears are green. His legs and arms are green. His tummy is green. Even his tail is green. He tries to hide his greenness, but he can’t. His mother insists he try some new foods. He tries oranges — no. He tries watermelon — no. Broccoli, apples, grapes — no, no, no. But carrots? They taste good! Sweet, juicy, carrots are all he wants. But what a surprise he has when he goes to take a drink and sees his reflection.

Author and illustrator Anuska Allepuz takes on the problem of being a picky eater. This is a cute way to combat that problem with kids by using the old adage that we are what we eat as a fun platform. The cute cartoony illustrations have lots of fun details to keep little eyes on the page and the text is imbued with humor.
