Reviewed by Robert Ahanes for Readers' Favorite Green Gooey Goop, a children's book by Anna C. Morrison, narrates the story of a mom who tries to add more green to her child's meal. She prepares a smoothie-like food with diverse green ingredients inside for her little girl who imagines the green smoothie as a mixture of disgusting and awful things such as sweaty socks and monkey. The little girl needs to eat the smelly green sandwich. She drops it and her dog licks the green stuff spilled on him. What happens to the poor dog is a mystery.   Readers, kids or adults, will enjoy the descriptive and rhyming story of a little girl who hates green stuff in her food. Everyone will enjoy reading this book since it's a common story among kids who prefer more sweets and chocolates rather than green nutritious vegetables. We may have had the same experience when we were children. Morrison just reminds us of the healthiness of green foods. Green Gooey Goop is a fun and insightful book for its readers. The intuitive and adorable illustrations by Alexander Morris help kids be part of the story, by letting them see horrible things brewing up from the pot mom gave to the little girl. The colors are vivid and attract readers, inviting them to enjoy it to the last moment. This book is a reminder to its readers to live healthily and stop making excuses since vegetables are good for everyone. We must change our eating habits and nutrition to live better and healthier lives.

Anna C. Morrison's "Green Gooey Goop" is a rhyming story about a mom trying to introduce more “green” into her child’s diet. Mom concocts some green stuff in a cup—perhaps it’s a green smoothie? The girl over-reacts and imagines all sorts of yucky smelly green stuff. In one scene she’s even wearing a gas mask. Several appealing green foods are mentioned, such as avocados, asparagus, broccoli, green apples, kiwis, pistachio nuts, and peas. Later other things are added: pickles, cilantro, spirolina, even frog toes! So, if all that is blended into the same cup, then maybe it is green gooey goop. As a mother and teacher, I cheer any and all efforts to get more fruits and vegetables into children. I know one mother who successfully snuck bits of broccoli into her boys’ smoothies. I never tried that, but I have served celery and apple slices with peanut butter, and baby carrots as snack foods. I have gotten my daughter to like strawberry banana smoothies without ice cream! Another friend serves a veggie tray with Ranch dressing. We do and try all this in the name of improving our children’s nutrition and health. The artwork by Alexander Morris is quite descriptive. He makes it look more like a mad science experiment gone wrong instead of a dietary innovation or intervention. The first plate of food looks perfectly normal and edible with melon and asparagus. Then later on, our main character is stirring up something with noxious fumes and describing all sorts of horrible things that must be brewing up in the pot. Slimy and thick, with floating chunks, made from snot in elephant trunks. In the end, the girl’s poor dog gets some green goop spilled on him, and he turns green. Hmm, maybe it isn’t food after all. Still, we all need to eat more green foods, more colorful fruits and vegetables to improve our health. If poking fun at what we eat, how it’s fixed or smells at least starts a conversation about healthy food, then we’re moving in the right direction.
