Mother and Father Rabbit really want their son John to eat carrots. His brother and sister eat theirs. They try everything they can think of to get him to eat them. They even resort to having Uncle Bunny come to their house so he can show him much he loves carrots.
There is one problem with that idea! Uncle Bunny doesn’t like carrots either. He hides them in plants and under his napkin.
He is a fun uncle though. He makes baked potato rabbits for the little bunnies to eat. (His potato lacks the carrot ears though. ) He takes them on hikes. He lets them feast on foods that they like.
After their feast, Uncle Bunny heads to the kitchen to eat what is left to eat and all that is left are carrots. He tries some and really likes them. He really does.
I love how this book about two picky eaters ends. What a fun book!
I am participating in a 10 day e-course offered by SKILLTRI called Love for Lunch. One of the days focuses on dips. After having JDaniel not like the carrots in his Bounding Bunnies Bento, I decided to have him help me make their pinto bean dip.
It was so easy. JDaniel helped chop up the parsley and scallion for it and then put it in the blender. He cut them into chunks rather than fine pieces and that actually gave the dip some texture.
We will be making this dip again. He really likes it and I love that he eats carrots with it.
Carrot Number Activity
This activity not only helped he work on forming letters. It reviewed counting skills as well as working with viewing numbers with concrete materials.
I need to confess that he still doesn’t like to write numbers and some are a little backwards. He did like getting to use the chopstick and salt to write them. I think we will be doing this activity again too.
