Why There Is Always Room For Dessert Review (The New Foundation Press)

What It Is

Why There Is Always Room For Dessert, is a silly book that seeks to answer the age old question, "Why is there always room for dessert?" The book is written by Lynn Fielding, illustrated by Jeff Lee Johnson, and storyboarded by Sonnet Fielding. In the story, a family sits down to dinner and as usual the kids don't want to finish their vegetables. Mom announces that there will be no dessert until they finish those vegetables. The kids start to complain that they are too full of carrots, peas, potatoes, but not too full for dessert. The kids, of course, question their parents how this is possible. Mom and dad explain in a whimsical way that little food people representing each food kids eat live inside every kid's tummy. And while all the other food people are full, the dessert one is starving and must be fed.

This is a silly book with full-page illustrations that will both entertain and maybe want to feed the dessert person living in your own tummy after reading.
