Are you looking for a whimsical picture book, a sweet story of challenge served with a bit of silly? Do you deal with a child’s food refusal? Do you know a picky eater? Whether your child is neurotypical or on the autism spectrum, my new picture book, entitled Silly Lily and the Polka-Dot Lunch, encourages children to try eating something new.
Sometimes Lily is silly, but she always knows what she wants. Instead of eating food, Lily tries to eat the polka dots on her pants. Will strong-willed Lily try real food for lunch? Kristina Lunde’s new story uses shapes, colors, repetition, encouragement, good manners, and a bit of silliness to encourage children to try new foods.
