About the Book:
Title: Green Gooey Goop
Author: Anna C. Morrison
Publisher: Green Gooey Goop
Genre: Children’s Picture Book
A little girl is presented with a different sort of a meal when her mom serves her green gooey goop. Interesting and icky ingredients appear one by one as the little girl decides what's in this noxious-smelling concoction. The little girl creates a flood, and her dog's fur turns green. Suggested age range for readers: 0-8
This book was written to capture the moment when a child is confronted by healthy food that, while nutritious, may not appear to be delicious. Many children react imaginatively to new foods, and the child in this book is no exception. She envisions the ingredients as other than what her mother describes in the first part of the book in an attempt to get out of eating the food. When she realizes she must eat it anyway, it spills onto the family dog, who may or may not be green forever!
I hope you enjoy starting a conversation with your child about the value of eating healthy foods that also taste delicious. Thank you for reading Green Gooey Goop!

When I first got the book I wasn't sure what the story was about. I read the story to my boys and they thought it was funny. Here is a girl who is being introduced to new food. It is healthy but she sees it as gross. It was a great way to start talking about eating healthy. The boys liked the pictures. They loved talking about the dog getting messy. They didn't really know it was about food until I told them. Definitely a book we will read again.
