In Too Much by Lucy Simon, we learn that kids worry about some of the most curious things. One of the funniest childhood concerns is turning into a particular food they eat in great quantities. To diminish those worries, Simon has created a picture book that shows kids and their fears about turning into a fruit or vegetable they eat. Too much eggplant, and poof! The child looks like an eggplant. Too much broccoli, oh no! They might turn into a stalk of this tree-like veggie. Is it possible that eating too much of any given food will make someone become a life-like replica of it?
Too Much by Lucy Simon is a cute picture book that goes through a list of fruits and vegetables that kids might be concerned about. Each page has a picture beside it that will help kids learn to identify the different foods and give them a laugh when they see the image of a child that reflects their worries. The illustrations are bright and colorful and help tell the story in a fun way. I love how Simon used short, simple words that kids can easily follow as they learn the names and shapes of each fruit or vegetable. This will help reduce the fear of transforming into a favorite food and serve as a cute story for kids to learn how to read and how to identify and group each type.
