If you are a parent, I am sure you have served something, whether it be a vegetable or meat, and hear your child exclaim, “Yuck! I hate _____!” John Donkers has authored a great little book about Lilly and her dislike of fish in Fish Potatoes. Without giving away the ending of the story, Lilly’s parents and her aunt figure out a way to sneak fish into Lilly’s diet. Lilly is a very typical young girl who decided she did not like fish without ever having tried fish. This is a frequent problem with children about different foods that they have decided to dislike. John has done a masterful job in presenting a very clever way to teach children to like or at least try different foods.
Fish Potatoes by John Donkers is a superb book for parents to use with their children. If you have a fussy eater, buy this book. When the book arrives, call your child(ren) to you on the sofa and draw them up on your lap or close beside you. Read this book with them and start a conversation about why it is important that they at least try a portion of the food before jumping to the conclusion that the food is yucky. John has authored a book easy for even young children to read. It should keep their interest. To make the book even more appealing, beautiful illustrations highlight the storyline. I highly recommend this book to all parents.
