Too Pickley by Jean Reidy

Too wrinkly, too squishy, too fruity, too fishy! It's time to eat, but somebody doesn't like a single item on his plate. What's a picky eater to do?This romping text and stylishly bold art make for a delectable board book. Parents (and the picky eaters they love) will recognize themselves in the hilarious antics played out here, while the ending brings reassurance-and with a little luck, a clean plate.

My Thoughts:

Too Pickley is a cute children’s bored book. The little boy in the story is a very picky eater. Everything that gets set down in front of him, he finds fault with. I am sure some children and parents can definitely identify with this. Some of the words are silly and made up, which is guaranteed to get a chuckle out of a child. I like that the book rhymes. Books that rhyme usually hold children’s attention longer. The hamster that is with the boy in every illustration makes me laugh. In the end, the boy gives up on being a picky eater and eats everything. I feel bad for his stomach ache later. I recommend this book for children three and older. 

I give Too Pickley: 5/5.
