Let's meet Little Grace in the story Greedy Grace (The Grace Book Collection) by C. Selbherr. She had curly hair and big brown eyes and loved playing in the mud. She enjoyed riding her bike while blowing out bubbles. Her dad was a cook and Grace often watched him make her favorite things. Grace loved baking and she baked beautiful cakes, muffins, and cookies. One day while cooking, Grace and her sister Alicia decided to have a picnic outside. There was so much food and Grace ate and ate. Alicia warned her to be careful but Grace did not listen. After a while, Grace's stomach began to ache and their mom had to call the doctor. The doctor asked Grace to stay in bed all day, much to her dismay.

The story is cute and adorable and the funny dogs at the end of the tale will bring a smile to young readers' faces. Greedy Grace (The Grace Book Collection) by C. Selbherr will teach children about self-control and guide parents on how to teach their children to eat properly without overeating. Nugraha makes the story appealing and the concept tangible with her wonderful and lively illustrations that make Grace's character real and relatable. The rhymes give the story a good pace and movement. This book is good to read out loud in classrooms and can be used at home and in schools for storytelling sessions to help children understand why it is important to eat right and why overeating can be bad for one's health.
