Beware: The Seven Silly Eaters

July 18, 2008

Parents everywhere, hearken to my words. You may have a unknown threat in your home.

A review of the children’s book, The Seven Silly Eaters, found on

I’m a teacher and can spot a good children’s book when I read it, and this one is no good. It teaches children that it’s ok to be picky, lazy, demanding and impulsive. It also teaches that cake is a good meal. The pictures are pretty, but that’s not worth the ridiculous story.

So, Mom, you got that? No more cake for breakfast, ok?

This does leave me wondering exactly what picture books this lady does endorse…I don’t want to know.
