Just Try It

This is a Read It! Reader book about a boy who did not like vegetables. We read this book when we did our unit on vegetables. He did everything possible to avoid eating them! He stuck his veggies in his nose. He put them in his shoe. He fed them to his dog. He refused to give his vegetables a try. Finally, his mom made a casserole with peas, beans, corn, broccoli, and carrots (all the veggies he refused to eat) and he tried and he liked it! We did have to talk about what you should and should not do at the dinner table while reading this book.
