Leave it to Beamer Presents: The Proof is in the Pudding by Clay Boura is a children’s book about a young boy named Beamer as he struggles to understand the popular idiom 'the proof is in the pudding.' Beamer starts to wonder what this means after his schoolteacher uses the expression in class and the remainder of the book takes place in his imagination as he tries to piece together how such an odd figure of speech came to be. As the story unfolds in his head, he begins to formulate an idea of how the idiom was created. Near the end of the story, Beamer’s teacher shares with him the real meaning of the saying, which only confirms what Beamer thought all along; that grown-ups really do have a funny way of saying things.

While reading The Proof is in the Pudding by Clay Boura, I noticed how clever the concept of the text is. The entire purpose of this book is to teach the true meaning of a single idiom and it achieves this goal in the simplistic approach which is both enjoyable and refreshing. Its fun and silly storytelling works wonders in bringing Beamer's imagination to life. There are times where this book can seem a bit repetitive with its word choice but, in general, The Proof is in the Pudding by Clay Boura conveys its message and is sure to delight any child in need of a bit of light reading or a bite of sweet dessert.
