Foodie people are particular about their food. This is why cooking shows are so popular on TV today. People are beginning to experience a love affair with food by what, how, and the way that they are eating it. In this hilariously illustrated children's book, Eggshells in My Omelette by Anson Berberich, there is a special way to fix an omelette: without eggshells. There is an omelette to suit every palate whether it's veggie, or seafood, or an omelette packed with protein that includes meats and cheeses, but eggshells are not invited. As your child reads this picture book, they will begin to taste this specially made omelette, and they too will feel and hear the crunch of the eggshells and giggle uncontrollably. Yummy! Children will truly enjoy this book as they read it; they will laugh, and begin to vividly think about how they would create their own omelette story. Join me and have an omelette as we walk through the story at Mrs. Chicken's Diner.

This book was such a pleasure to read. The illustrations, rhymes, and the story line surrounding the omelette are gems. As the boy makes his case to the waitress to take back the crunchy omelette, the story explodes. He tells her that he's not picky about his crunchy peanut butter sandwich falling on the ground, his bread getting moldy, or if someone sneezes on his cheese - he'll still eat it, these things are nothing to him - but eggshells in his omelette? This is where he draws the line. The story is simple and full of laughs while putting you in mind of a Dr. Seuss story like The Cat In The Hat and Green Eggs and Ham. The waitress gives him another omelette, but that too comes as a surprise. Enjoy!
