What Portia Peach Won't Eat
Portia Peach hates nourishing food, and her despairing family fear for her health. When Great-Aunt Doreen takes Portia to visit relatives at a circus, Portia discovers an ambition to be a circus performer herself, and finds that good food can help her achieve her dream!
Help inspire children who hate healthy eating, with this charming book, written and illustrated by Lynn Costelloe.
WHAT PORTIA PEACH WON'T EACH COLORING AND ACTIVITY BOOK
"What Portia Peach Won't Eat" is the uplifting story of a sickly child who refuses to eat healthily - until she realises that doing so is the only way to achieve her dreams. In this companion colouring and activity book, offered as pdf so the illustrations can be printed out at full size to color in, the author has created a series of activity pages for children, all reinforcing the theme of the benefits of healthy eating. This version is intended to be more attractive to younger children, who can ask for help reading the larger text, complete the illustrations in between reading the story and perhaps develop an interest in reading other chapter books while they color in the pictures. More than just a coloring book, this takes development through play to the next level.

Emma Tate is a good girl, but the same canít be said about her eating habits. Like her friends, she loves to eat fish fingers, chips, sweets and crisps rather than the mashed potatoes, vegetables and meat that her mum prepares for dinner. She often pushes her food around the plate, makes faces, and drops bits over the edge of the plate. Her mum is worried about Emma not getting all the nutrients she needs. One day she buys a lovely plate with a beautiful picture of a house on it for Emma to use. When Emma still wonít eat her food, an elf who lives in the house on the plate begs Emma to eat her dinner because the food blocks his door and windows.
Children are all about taste. If it tastes good, then itís good for them even though itís unhealthy. Their reluctance to expand their taste buds also makes the problem worse. There are many ĎEmma Tateí kids out there, testing their parentsí patience. With the help of the magic plate, little Emma realizes that dinner might taste good after all. Iím sure this charming, short tale would also help others like Emma.
To all those mothers out there who have children who are fussy eaters, Emma Tate and the Magic Plate by Rosita Bird is a fun way to teach children with picky eating habits. With Lynn Costelloeís delightful and entertaining illustrations as well as Birdís easy and engaging prose, young readers can enjoy this story with or without their parents.
