Burger Boy by Alan Durant

Last week at the library one of the books Kayden picked was Burger Boy by Alan Durant. This book made my little man laugh and laugh. It's probably best for kiddos 2 and 1/2 and up, the littler ones wouldn't understand it and parts of it will still be confusing to a 2 and 1/2 year old.

The story is a little boy that will only eat Burgers and his mom warns him that one day he could turn into a burger. He does and has to escape some different situations along his road to becoming a boy again.

The lesson is that you need to eat a variety of foods because all of one thing isn't enough for little kids. So this book could be good for picky eaters or little ones who are stuck on certain foods, it could help you bridge a conversation on why they need to eat a variety of foods.

It's also good for talking about food groups and different food categories. We used it to talk about fruits and veggies and which ones we like and some that he hasn't tried, etc.

Overall it's a fun book and got my little guys stamp of approval because everytime we read it during the last week he would laugh out loud, so to me that is a good book!
