Yummy Stories is a collection of six modern folk and fairy tales that kids of all ages will adore.
Full of beautiful, vibrant illustrations by Anda Cofaru, these imaginative stories make healthy food fun and look delicious at the same time- a brilliant way to encourage kids to eat their veggies!
Follow the stories of unforgettable characters, like a brave little pea who wants to grow tall, or a greedy giant who swallowed the carrots whole. Find out what happens to a vain strawberry who is always admiring herself, and discover a magical world of fairies, dinosaurs, and so much more.
Short and wonderfully entertaining, each tale ends with a rhyming lesson to be learned from the story. Kids will love interacting with this book and exploring the beautifully detailed artwork- and are even encouraged to finish telling a story themselves!
As an added bonus, in the back of the book the author has included some fantastic food art that you can create with your kids to encourage them to eat well. You can also view these by visiting her instagram page at: www.instagram.com/lillalexander
If you’re looking for a refreshingly fun and imaginative book that just so happens to teach kids about healthy eating along the way, look no further than Yummy Stories by Lil L. Alexander.
