Eat Up, Gemma by Sarah Hayes

Baby Gemma is up to mischief - refusing to eat, throwing her breakfast on the floor, squashing her grapes, feeding her dinner to the dog. But one day, in church, her brother has a clever idea for getting Gemma to eat up.


A smashing pre-school book... A simple, clear text is beautifully brought to life by Jan Ormerod's crisp illustration. Books for Your Children
