If you could be any food, what would you be? You could be messy like spaghetti, tough like an orange, or even sweet like a cake! IF I WERE FOOD is a picture book for ages 2-6 and beyond. With colorful pictures and lots of details to point out, IF I WERE FOOD is a fun way for parents and kids to talk about different foods to try and ways to eat the foods they already love. Who knows, maybe your child will want to try tomatoes on their pizza, or mushrooms with their meatballs.

I wrote IF I WERE FOOD when my son was 2.5 years old, at the point that he was starting to lose his adventurous eating spirit. He was a kid who loved spicy Ethiopian food, BBQ chicken and baked tofu. Suddenly he only wanted pasta or pizza, and wouldn't touch chicken if it had the slightest bit of burn.I don't know if the book helped in any way, but it is definitely fun to read. Like so many parents, it seems like I've read hundreds of books, thousands of times. So when creating IF I WERE FOOD with illustrator, Chris Herrick, it was important that there be lots of things on the page to point to. Find a purple carrots or a red olive. How many candles are on the cake? Did you know that oranges have navels? You never have to read it the same way twice.This book is not just about healthy eating, but about the joy of eating. My hope is that IF I WERE FOOD helps kids identify different foods and be adventurous about trying new foods. For parents, I hope it helps to change up the foods that your kids already love. Who knows, they might love sushi, or putting red peppers on their pizza, or a tomato on their turkey sandwich.Bon appetit!From the Back Cover:
