In the mood for food with mood!

Kids’ moods are as unpredictable as the weather! Some days they pleasantly surprise you and some days they seem determined to act difficult. Sometimes, they owe their mood swings to lack of sleep and sometimes it’s too much sleep! Sometimes it’s just before school in the morning and sometimes its right after school in the afternoon or evening! Sometimes, it’s the end of a playdate and sometimes it’s the beginning of one! Sometimes they are simply bored and sometimes they are simply tired! But most of the time, your little one will always be in a mood for a book! :-)

Today I read the book titled “How are you peeling- Foods with Moods” by Saxton Freymann and Joost Elffers. A brilliantly illustrated book, this one is sure to cheer any grumpy face, be it of a child or of an adult. Believe me, your little one will love to see the carved fruits and veggies mimic facial expressions that we commonly see in them which they in turn probably see in us! You’ll never find a green bell pepper looking so sad, a turnip feeling bad, a smiling tomato cheering up a dull looking jalapeno, jumpy orange looking relieved to see his friend lemon arrive, an amused looking red bell pepper, a surprised apple, a confused tomato, an angry pear, an embarrassed peach, disappointed onion, sweet lemon looking all apologetic, tired looking turnip and a sleepy kiwi letting out a yawn! So next time either you or your little one feeling broody, then peel off your foul mood by reading about the foods with moods!!! :-)
