If An Armadillo Went To A Restaurant

If an armadillo went to a restaurant, what would she order? Would it be spaghetti and meatballs or a plate of ants and worms with beetles, too? In this book, If An Armadillo Went To A Restaurant by Ellen Fischer and Lauren Wood, children get to find out what an armadillo might eat -- and what plenty of other animals might eat, too! 

This adorable book came highly recommended to our family this afternoon by both Miss Wendy and Miss Bonnie at The Storybook Shoppe.  We took the book home and dove right in.  We learned what a sea turtle, rattlesnake, butterfly, giraffe, wallaby, hedgehog, giraffe and a few others eat. It's a clever book, really! As children learn about the animals, where they live and what they eat, it's also funny, a bit sassy, and entertaining. It's perfectly illustrated to keep things fun, dynamic and interesting for children to follow along. 

The O'Regan children especially enjoyed the last page with a menu and this message: "What would you order?" As I read off the items (chocolate chip pancakes, PB&J Sandwich, Spaghetti and Meatballs, and other kid friendly foods), my daughter, Molly, and son, Connor, rattled off which they would choose. (I was only a bit disappointed that less cliche and more varied foods weren't included. Certainly there are plenty of children who go beyond this menu! Chicken vindaloo? Indian curry? Pad Thai? It could happen!)  But the menu idea was a fun and interactive end to the book!
