    Most children have probably never wondered what their food thinks of them, nor considered what sort of lullaby a praying mantis might sing to her offspring, but that won t prevent them from taking Robert Weinstock s wacky Food Hates You, Too to heart With nineteen amusing poems, all addressing the issue of eating in one way or another, this little collection will appeal to young readers sense of the absurd.As other reviewers have noted, the author uses an expansive vocabulary, but it is the rh Most children have probably never wondered what their food thinks of them, nor considered what sort of lullaby a praying mantis might sing to her offspring, but that won t prevent them from taking Robert Weinstock s wacky Food Hates You, Too to heart With nineteen amusing poems, all addressing the issue of eating in one way or another, this little collection will appeal to young readers sense of the absurd.As other reviewers have noted, the author uses an expansive vocabulary, but it is the rhyming sing song quality of his poems, together with the creative and slightly gross mixed media illustrations, that really make this picture book collection worthwhile I myself particularly relished the send up of Margaret Wise Brown s Goodnight Moon in Mom, but there s plenty here to give readers young and old a chuckle

    We children s librarians spend a lot of time discussing the book jackets of children s novels or non fiction selections Now consider how often you critique a picture book s cover Once a week Twice Or are you like me and you hardly ever think to critique them at all I confess that I take a lot of picture book jackets for granted Every consumer, whether they mean to or not, judges books by their covers It s the natural course of things It s how the world works So when I see a really good We children s librarians spend a lot of time discussing the book jackets of children s novels or non fiction selections Now consider how often you critique a picture book s cover Once a week Twice Or are you like me and you hardly ever think to critique them at all I confess that I take a lot of picture book jackets for granted Every consumer, whether they mean to or not, judges books by their covers It s the natural course of things It s how the world works So when I see a really good cover, I mean a really really good picture book cover, I should give fair credit where credit is due And I consider Food Hates You, Too and Other Poems to be a wonderful example of a successful picture book jacket There s something about the title combined with that big old tomato blowing you a raspberry so to speak that appeals to kids and adults alike As collections of poetry go, Robert Weinstock has a fine and twisted sense of humor that may not be entirely consistent, but at least stands out in the field Nineteen poems Nineteen straaaaaaange poems In them, food gets its due Whether it s the contemplation of the taste of space, the recommendation of one cat related ice cream flavor over another, or an ode to toast long departed, Robert Weinstock has a strange but consistent feel for what works as a poem Kids reading this book will find themselves locating limericks, sonnets, and other forms You ain t never seen anything quite like it before Now in terms of the poems themselves, they re a bit touch and go Some work better than others I was quite fond of Eleanor Isabel Abigail Rhoda any poem that rhymes South Dakota with small iota has my respect and Momabout that one later Sadly the titular poem Food Hates You, Too didn t quite gel for me The lines scan, sure but the concept is tough Each line argues that maybe different kinds of kids gross out different kinds of foods rather than the other way around So you have sentences like, That Trudys gross out rainbow trout, And Rachels skeeve out schmaltz That Tommys make pastramis pout, And sardines cringe at Walts You can see what Weinstock s going for here, but it s almost too ambitious Taken as a whole the poem is too long for its concept, and so it drags a bit in the telling There were others that also didn t work, but the poem Cheese Sonnet grew on me At first I discounted it then I noticed how nice a little sonnet it was Strange Oh heavens my yes But in a good way I m one of those swelled head librarian types I like to think that I m familiar with all the children s books out there That a name like Robert Weinstock would stick in my little cranium But as I read through this book I was under the distinct impression that this was the first Weinstockian fare I d tasted before Then I got to the what would become by favorite poem Mom It s basically Goodnight Moon, only with husband eating praying mantises Mantids Manti talking about devouring their mates Trust me, it works I admired the little details around the room The fact that the little mantis in bed has four little slippers sitting on the floor The spiders that are providing mommy mantis s knitting material And then I glanced over at the bedside table and what did I see Why, none other than a copy of one of the strangest and most enjoyably weird picture books I ve read in years, Giant Meatball Giant Meatball Giant Meatball I ve read Robert Weinstock before because he wrote Giant Meatball That makes an infinite amount of sense now that I ve put two and two together After all, only a guy who tells a story about an inconsiderate house sized meatball is going to come up with poems about sweet flavored meats and meat flavored sweets I m just sorry I didn t realize it sooner Though it s drawn in a rough colored pencil kind of way, Food Hates You, Too is chock full of amusing details right from the start For example, there s the table of contents, a section that most poetry books throw together without a second thought Here, however, you see that the contents are appropriately enough within a person s body The person is all bones the funny bones are giving off tiny ha ha s and if you look closely you ll see that the person is covering up their private portions with their hands It s not immediately apparent, but great when you catch it Throughout the book you ll also see small creatures make snarky comments to varying degrees of amusement My favorite Undoubtedly the shellfish that accompany the poem Pernicious Says one That s not kosher Says the other one, Neither are we I m a big proponent of children s books that contain in jokes for the adults that have to read them over and over and over again So in this way, Mr Weinstock wins And just to go back to Giant Meatball for a moment, how weird is it that Mr Weinstock likes to give pink normally inanimate objects socks and loafers The Giant Meatball was a shoe wearing bloke And looking at this book so too is the brain on the last very last page Pink wobbly thing with socks and loafers it is Psychologically mesmerizing To be perfectly frank, the books that would pair most perfectly with this title would be Adam Rex s Frankenstein fare Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich and Frankenstein Takes the Cake respectively Rex and Weinstock share a fine appreciation for the gross coupled with the snort worthy In a way, this book felt to me like the lovechild of Adam Rex and Shel Silverstein Goofy, mildly disturbing, almost always funny fare In the end, I m willing to overlook a wonky poem or two if it means I get to read a book full of clever details and cleverer rhyme schemes Definitely recommended for those kids who want to read poetry that always keeps em guessing Cause brother, you will have no way of predicting the products of Robert Weinstock s brain.Ages 5 10

    Grade Preschool 2Poems The poem the book is named after is probably my favorite in this collection of poems I think it would be good to read to children who are picky eaters and won t even give some foods a try.

    While some of the poems and most of the illustrations are clever, it left something to be desired I like clever poems for children, and appreciated the author s sense of form in some of the poems , but as a whole, it wasn t my favorite.

    This was a book of quirky, silly poems with a food and drink theme The title poem, Food Hates You, Too was one of my favorites Key line The Brads are loathed by brussels sprouts , while a picture of gossipy sprouts criticize, What kind of name is Brad I really liked the illustrations, which complimented and expanded the ideas in the mostly short poems In Benjamin Benjamin Dietz who repeats and repeats what he eats , the poem is matched by replicated rows of canned sugary meats This was a book of quirky, silly poems with a food and drink theme The title poem, Food Hates You, Too was one of my favorites Key line The Brads are loathed by brussels sprouts , while a picture of gossipy sprouts criticize, What kind of name is Brad I really liked the illustrations, which complimented and expanded the ideas in the mostly short poems In Benjamin Benjamin Dietz who repeats and repeats what he eats , the poem is matched by replicated rows of canned sugary meats reminiscent of a Warhol painting.There is a very creepy Mom poem accompanied by a picture straight out of Good Night Moon This mom is no sweet rabbit she lulls her son to sleep with her confession of murdering his dad but she is a praying mantis.There is also a eulogy to twin pieces of toast Dead of course, because they were eaten for breakfast.And then there is the Cheese Sonnet chronicling the life story of a hunk of cheese Did his life begin in a pail Or in a cow I m not a cow Never was It s quite a sad sonnet, because, well life stinks when you smell worse than feet

    This book is filled with a lot of lyrical, nonsense poems and very vivid illustrations The poems are really funny, and there is a wide variety of them One poem is a recipe for the ocean, one is about a strange invention, and my personal favorite is about food disliking people in the way that some people dislike food These poems are definitely nonsensical, but they have very good rhyming patters to them, which makes them fun and easy to read I think this would be a great book for first and se This book is filled with a lot of lyrical, nonsense poems and very vivid illustrations The poems are really funny, and there is a wide variety of them One poem is a recipe for the ocean, one is about a strange invention, and my personal favorite is about food disliking people in the way that some people dislike food These poems are definitely nonsensical, but they have very good rhyming patters to them, which makes them fun and easy to read I think this would be a great book for first and second graders, and it would be great to read out loud to them A lot of the poems use a great deal of personification, so the kids would have to use their imagination when picturing the poems, so it really celebrates children s imaginations This is a poetry book I would possibly use in my classroom I could use it for an art project or to lead into a writing project Other than that, the book does not have a lot of educational aspects to it, other than it being a fun way to teach about poetry

    These poems are about different foods, some that you may hate and some that you might love These are cute poems for students because they will be able to relate to most of them The pictures are very detailed and sometimes funny Some of the poems are even on the backgrounds of other children books like Goodnight Moon While reading these poems you can see if your students can recognize these backgrounds.

    Genre PoetryGrade Level 2nd 6thThis is a silly book about picky eaters It was fun to read because the author used lots of rhyming words to create silly poems about things to which kids could relate such as only liking one kind of food It could be used to show children that even though everyone has their own likes and dislikes, it is ok to be unique It might also be a good way to introduce a lesson on nutrition and healthy eating for older children.
