James is a very picky eater.  He does not eat broccoli because it is disgusting, lasagna smells funny, milk is repulsive, oatmeal is lumpy and eggs are slimy.  In order to get James to eat his food, his father comes up with creative stories to encourage and guilt him into eating the different foods.  Either he eats the oatmeal or oatmeal will continue to grow and eat the things James likes, such as ice cream, cake and his dog.  His father’s reason for why James should eat certain food becomes even more creative as you read through each chapter.  Will the reasons and explanations James’ father give be enough for him to try new foods? Read and you shall find out!

Tales for Very Picky Eaters by Josh Schneider, is a great book for beginning chapter book readers, grades 1 and up.  This story will also be a great read-a-loud, especially by parents who have children that are picky eaters.  For 1st grade and older.
