Eat, Leo! Eat! by Caroline Adderson - OPTIONAL

Adderson, Caroline Eat, Leo! Eat! Illustrated by Josee Bisaillon. PICTURE BOOK. Kids Can Press, 2015. $16.95. Content: G
Every Sunday Leo and his family go to his nonna's house for lunch. She makes delicious pasta that everyone is eager to eat except for Leo. He says he's not hungry, but nonna has more than just food to share. In order to excite Leo's appetite, she serves up stories with her delicious meals that continue each week. As Leo's interest in the stories grow, so does his appetite for pasta.
Overall an average story will average illustrations. The only thing that would set this book apart and cause an interest in some readers is the insertion of Italian words throughout the book that are translated with a helpful glossary.
