A fun way to teach children about nutritionReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 21, 2018
I read this book with my 8 year old daughter and we laughed and laughed. We practice good nutrition at home and found this book to be a cute and fun. This is a good way to help parents to show their little ones the importance of a well balanced meal stocked with healthy nutrition. In this cute story, it definitely gives a whole new meaning to you are what you eat. " This sheds light on a topic that needs to be discussed in a very fun and funny way. Highly recommended.

fun, fun, fun!Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 22, 2013
What a cute silly story. Dana is a boy who loves to eat bagels. He eats them so much (and nothing else) that he turns into one! What an experience he'll have when his friends chase him around the playground with cream cheese and butter! This book reminded me of the time when my kids were younger and only wanted to eat goldfish crackers. I used to tell them that when kids eat too much goldfish they turn into fish. Humor and jokes aside, this book is perfect for having a conversation about eating a variety of foods and the importance of good nutrition. A a silly and fun read to share with family, I highly recommend.
Picky Eaters Be Gone!Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on September 15, 2013
I came upon this children's book by chance and my son absolutely loved it! My 5 years old son has been a picky eater for a few years now eating macaroni and cheese and hot dogs as a staple part of his diet. He has extreme difficulty trying new foods and this book opened up some great discussion about expanding his diet. When we first started reading it, the colorful funny pictures drew us both in and he couldn't wait to turn the page to see what happened next. In the middle of the book, he asked me "Mom, do you think I'll turn into mac and cheese?" I told him he very well could if he doesn't start trying other foods. About dinner time, he came to me and said, "I think I'd like to try something new. I don't want to turn into mac and cheese; I'll be falling all over the place." The story is a common theme in the world of raising children and this story truly brought out the light side of an otherwise difficult issue to handle. Thank you Aviva Gittle! Can't wait to read more!

Funny too. "How would I feel if my friends ...Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on May 4, 2016
Clever and inspiring. Funny too. "How would I feel if my friends were chasing me around with tasty spreads?" I'd probably feel much as protagonist, Dana, does. It's important to see things from a different perspective sometimes, though when it goes too far it's easy to long for home while continuing to appreciate a broadened view. Well done, Aviva Gittle!
A story all parents (and even some children) can relate toReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on July 29, 2013
Bagel Boy has all the ingredients of a classic children's story; a child who doesn't heed his parents advice, a misadventure, a bagel, redemption and a surprise ending. The illustrations are fantastic and convey some subtle humor that parents will enjoy. This is a great book that is enjoyable for readers of all ages.
