"No More, Por Favor"
"No More, Por Favor" by Susan Middleton Elya,
Illustrated by David Walker (G.P.Putnam's Sons, $16.99, ages 3-5) is a
treat, a funny one at that, and also a bi-lingual picture book. It has a
lot going for it. Elya and Walker team up effectively in words and
pictures to create this love of a book which is about a bright and funny
look at an appealing rainforest which is filled with great things to eat
like pomegrantes, squishy avocados, bananas.
Yet, when all the children in the rain forest refuse to eat their usual
food at the same time, a smart mama comes up with a way to make everyone
full and happy. As the back cover of this terrific tome declares: "Picky
eaters have never been so entertained." HIGHLY RECOMMENDED READING.
