Don’t Eat That by Drew Sheneman - ADVISABLE

Don’t Eat That by Drew Sheneman. PICTURE BOOK. Viking (Penguin), 2018. $18. 9781101997291



A talkative girl scout comes across a bear trying to find food. She tries to help but decides the bear is hopeless and goes to find some other animal to help for her merit badge. Having no luck with other animals, she returns to the bear and they solve his culinary problems together. 

This story is told entirely in dialog bubbles which can sometimes be confusing for reading aloud, but since the girl scout is the only one talking the entire book, it is actually a really fun read aloud. There are puns and humor along the way and the book ends up being a really endearing book on unlikely friendships and helping others.
