'Lil Sonny Sky's Book of the week...

Vegetable Glue written by Susan Chandler and illustrated by the fantastic Elena Odriozola, is one of Sky's favourite books and one of mine to read together. I bought this book ( along with a few others) to encourage Sky to eat more vegetables...other than carrots! Sky's fantastic at eating friut but pants at eating her veggies.... and still is! but will eat 5 plums, a kiwi, clementine and a pear all in one sitting! 

This book tells the tale in a lovely rhyming way of a little girl who doesn't make enough vegetable glue in her tummy to keep all of her bits stuck on!! ...
Skyla love's this page with all the noses, and we have to 'pick' a nose, Sky always picks the very long pointy one for me   ( I can't think why?) and the cute mouse one for her!...

Granny comes to the rescue who has always eaten her Veg and is looking good for a hundred and four! The illustrations are sooo beautiful, I've admired Elena Odriozola's work for a while and try to buy her books when I go to Spain
This is our favourite bit, when she trumps and her bottom falls off!  magic! You can't beat a trump in a story, a classic in our family library!
