Emma and Ethan the twins, love to throw their food on the floor, every meal. Mom and Dad are very angry, but that does not bother Emma and Ethan that continue to throw food on the floor. The potato tired of this, the tomato tired of this and even the cheese tired! What will do the potato, tomato, cheese, bread, egg and pie ......??? This book is for children, age 2-4.

When the town's food comes alive to teach an important lesson the story finishes with a triumphant ending. Beautiful writing and illustrations make for a great fun book that kids will love!"

Author Yael Manor and illustrators Anahit Aleqsanyan and Ani Vardanyan have created a book that is not only well written and visually pleasing but carries with it an important message about a chronic problem with children - making messes, and how to change that. This is the third of Yael Manor's successful twin stories: She has a set of twins of her own!
Twins Ethan and Emma are messy eaters and toss their food on he floor without concern for their parent's instructions to be tidy. In that `other world' the slice of bread, tomato, cheese, omelet, potato and pie that have landed on the floor are disgusted. They plot and agree to get revenge. The next day when Emma and Ethan try to eat the food placed before them (slice of bread, tomato, cheese, omelet, potato and pie) each piece of food jumps from their hands onto the floor and then the revengeful foods march to the wastebasket to tidy up, leaving Emma and Ethan with no food to eat. With a satisfied parent looking on, the...
This book talks about the importance of food and how little children love throwing and playing with food.
Learning and growing go together but sometimes food needs to intervene to teach a lesson to these naughty twins.
My son and I really enjoyed reading this book and leaning about not throwing food. It is a perfect bedtime read, short and sweet.
In one sentence it says that the twins are given half a toast and my 5 year old could not find a picture of half a toast so he asked me not to read it as half a toast or half a tomato.
Either the text has to be edited or the picture as we could not find half a slice of any food. It is just the observation of a kid who takes his stories very seriously.
We loved the food and vegetables marching away and discussing. The twins learned their lesson and so do all who read the book about the value of food.
Love the illustrations!!! The story is about twins, Emma and Ethan, who love to throw their food on the floor during mealtime! The foods decide that they have had enough and stage a jump out at the next mealtime!! The illustrations of the twins is hilarious. You can feel their surprise as the food jumps off their plates to the floor!! The ending result is that the twins learn to eat the food and not throw it down. This would be fun book for toddlers to help them learn to eat the food and not throw it on the floor! Manor has used an experience as a twin mom to help others see that the food doesn't have to war but a peaceful time!!
