I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato is appropriate for all ages.

Summary:
I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato is a new take on the classic picky eater tale. Lola is very fussy about food. But when brother Charlie explains that those are not peas, but rather incredibly rare Greendrops from Greenland, she just has to try them. But what about those tomoatos? Will Lola be tricked into trying those?

Practice this Comprehension Strategy-Take a Picture Walk:
Before you read I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato flip through the pages with your child asking what they see. Talk about the different foods that are on the pages. Ask your child if Lola looks happy or curious or mad. After discussing what you see on the pages, ask your child to make a prediction about what they think is happening in the story. After you read, see if any of their predictions were correct!

Do this with your child:
After reading I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato talk with your child about their favorite part of the story. Have them draw a picture of their favorite part or of a food they think can be called something else. If you have a picky eater at home, use this book as a platform to start trying new things!
