Anna's Book Blog

AnnaHi, my name is Anna, and I’m the new Head of the Children’s Department. I grew up here in Goldsboro. I learned to love books and reading early in life thanks to my mom, who brought me to the library many times a week. I’m so excited to be working in the library I grew up with, and to be able to find the perfect book for you. Books allow us to learn so many things about the world and make our imaginations go wild! I’ll be sharing some of my favorite library books with you on this blog, so be sure to visit us to check them out!

I Won't Eat That

I Won't Eat That by Christopher Silas Neal

Cat is very hungry. But cat food is dry and dull and not at all yummy. So what in the world should Cat eat instead? Turtle eats worms, but worms are too wiggly. Fox eats rabbits, but rabbits are too bouncy. What everyone else loves to eat is thoroughly unappetizing to Cat. Until, by chance, the thing Cat really wants to eat appears right in front of him. What could it be? 

We have a big holiday coming up--Thanksgiving! What do we do on Thanksgiving? We eat! Even though it is nice to eat all the yummy foods we like in one sitting, what would you do if nothing sounded good to you?  This Cat went around and asked everyone what they liked to eat...but finally found what she really liked to eat in the end. Do you have the same favorite food as your mom? Your brother? Your friend? Probably not! We all like different things, but isn't it nice when we figure out what we really like and get to enjoy it? 

Happy Thanksgiving, friends!
