Green Gooey Goop

Kids will love this amusing book by Anna C. Morrison. It's about a kid whose mother makes a "healthy" drink by combining green vegetables and plants into a slimy mixture.

The kid spills it on the floor and the dog licks it up. What do you think happens to the dog?

Any child who is encouraged to eat healthy food will appreciate the ingredients in the goop, which keep getting more disgusting as the story progresses.

And parents will want to assure their kids that the real fruits and vegetables they offer won't be anything like the combination in the story. Sharing this funny book would be a good way to start a discussion the importance of eating real foods that are healthy.

Alexander Morris did a great job of showing the story in his illustrations.
