Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

With Spring Break quickly approaching, moms and dads and grandmas and grandpas all over Westerville will have houses full of hungry (and after five minutes home) bored kids. Why not have some fun in the kitchen with these new themed cookbooks!

Still hungry? Try these awesome kids cookbooks! Or these fun non-fiction readers about food!

STILL HUNGRY!? Check out one of our favorite kids’ artists, Laurie Berkner singing “Song in my Tummy” off of her album Under a Shady Tree.

Just one more bite!

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

“One more bite for mommy!”  “You can’t eat only white food!”  “Potato chips are NOT lunch!”  If these phrases are in your daily repertoire, chances are you’re dealing with the dreaded picky eater.  (Insert scary movie sound clip here.)

As always, your friendly librarians have your back.  Check out some of these fun kid’s books and just maybe your little food critic will be inspired to be a bit more…adventurous.  If your problem runs deeper than picture books alone can solve, these books for grown ups might be right up your alley.

Now…where’d I put those goldfish crackers?
