The Lovereading4Kids comment

This book will be a godsend for parents whose toddlers refuse to try more than one or two items of food. Dozy Bear won’t eat his lunch, he only wants fish, even though he’s hungry. Trotting off on his own, he meets all sorts of other animals who tempt him with tasty treats – apples, blueberries, carrots. They encourage him to taste them properly and by the end of the book Dozy is converted, ‘Food tastes good in different ways. It’s HOW you eat it that matters, not what it looks like. And the more you eat, the better it tastes.’ It’s full of practical tips on ways to encourage little ones to try different tastes, and children will love copying Dozy. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Dozy Bear and the Secret of Food by Katie Blackburn

Grumble grumble went Dozy's tummy. He was hungry! 'I'll go and find some food,' Dozy decided, and off he trotted into the woods. And that's how his adventure began!

The curious little Dozy Bear learns the secret of food in this innovative, thoughtful picture book which encourages youngsters to try something new...Dozy is hungry, but he doesn't like the food that Mama and Papa bear like. He only wants fish! But can a food adventure with the other animals in the forest change his mind?

Reviews

Praise for Dozy Bear and the Secret of Sleep:

The first book I've read that teaches children how to fall asleep. This book is the way forward. The Three Day Nanny, Kathryn Mewes as seen on C4

This book is a genuine lifesaver. On those nights when you think nothing will work it has sent my toddler fast asleep Jenny Hutton, mother of Woody aged 20 months

I love this book almost as much as my toddler does! Maybe more. Beautiful rhythmic language patterns...A must-have for all parents and their young children at bedtime Deborah Henley, Clinical Hypnotherapist and Mind Coach
