Lunchby Denise Fleming
One hungry mouse peeks out of his hole and sniffs . . . LUNCH! Children can guess what fruit or vegetable comes next as the voracious rodent munches his way through yellow corn, green peas, orange carrots, and the rest of the primary colors vibrantly represented by Denise Fleming's unique, eye-catching style. 30 pp. 50,000 print.
“Fleming's feisty mouse peeks out of a hole in the wall and spies a table laden with goodies-a smorgasbord of fruits and vegetables in bold colors. With each turn of the page, the hungry mouse samples one colorful food after another: crisp white turnip, tasty orange carrot, sweet yellow corn, tender green peas. Children will love to guess what food comes next...” Booklist

I held a nutrition intervention with a group of 3 & 4 year olds and used this book as an ice breaker. This book is great becasue it not only has amazing illustrations, but it gets the children involved. I would highly recommend it!
We have had this book for 4 months from the library and I'm finally going to buy a copy. My 3 yr. old LOVES it. It's a cute story with a funny ending.
