Title: Green Gooey Goop
Author: Anna C. Morrison
Publisher: Green Gooey Goop
Genre: Children’s Picture Book
A little girl is presented with a different sort of a meal when her mom serves
her green gooey goop. Interesting and icky ingredients appear one by one as
the little girl decides what's in this noxious-smelling concoction. The little girl
creates a flood, and her dog's fur turns green. Suggested age range for readers: 0-8
This book was written to capture the moment when a child is confronted by
healthy food that, while nutritious, may not appear to be delicious. Many
children react imaginatively to new foods, and the child in this book is no
exception. She envisions the ingredients as other than what her mother
describes in the first part of the book in an attempt to get out of eating the
food. When she realizes she must eat it anyway, it spills onto the family dog,
who may or may not be green forever!
I hope you enjoy starting a conversation with your child about the value of
eating healthy foods that also taste delicious.
Thank you for reading Green

Green Gooey Goop is about a child's impression of the "healthy" foods Mom tries to introduce into their diet. It starts with normal foods, such as lemongrass, melons, asparagus, but soon becomes stranger and more disgusting. Quite suitable to a vivid child like imagination.
The green goop becomes uncontrollable as it oozes out onto the floor where the dog is waiting.
What happens when the dog samples the Green Gooey Goop?
The illustrations and imagination are delightful.
