Animals Eat Their Veggies Too! is a whimsical rhyming 32 page hardcover children's picture book. It aims to make vegetables fun, and a normal part of a child's everyday diet, through imaginative story and humorous animal illustrations aimed at ages three and up.

Harry is pretending to be a lion before dinner time. He only wants to eat meat like a lion and leave his veggies. So mummy and daddy think up a story about which animals like to eat their veggies, hoping to encourage Harry to not only eat his vegetables but enjoy them too.

Harry took one look at his meal,
he slumped down in his seat.
“I’m a lion today,” he said,
“I’m only eating meat!”

Daddy had cooked a delicious mix of healthy vegetable treats.
But Harry only wanted steak.
Not broccoli, carrots or leeks.

Oh my gosh this print is so great in person! The seller kindly included a small button as a gift which was very awesome, as well as signed the print as requested. (Thank you so much! Aaaah I love it) I have it framed up on my wall and the button now lives on my backpack! Print arrived very quickly from Australia to US (I'm just a slow reviewer). Packaging was sturdy and nice. I'm delighted with my purchase and definitely intend to buy from this seller again!
