Will definitely look for more Arthur books. Talked about restaurants, salads and tomatoes. Child promises to give tomatoes a try next time.

If I put my 2 year old daughter Madison to bed without this story, she'll say (in her limited vocab), "Mommy, wait!....D.W. Picky Eater!" The story follows Arthur Read's little sister D.W. (short for Dora Winifred), who refuses to eat a huge list of foods, but none more than dreaded spinach. The book follows D.W. as she eats dinner at a friends house and refuses to put sauce on her spaghetti, how she makes a huge scene at a restaurant by pounding her fist onto the spinach salad dish, and on to the triumphant end- when she unknowingly eats an entire pot pie filled with spinach and likes it. I've read it so many times I can turn the book away from me for the kids to see and recite it word for word. Pitiful? Perhaps. But, that's how much Maddy adores this book. All the D.W. books in the Arthur series are funny and cute- so much humor peppered throughout that even adults have to laugh.

My 22 month old daughter loves the D.W. books within the Arther book series by Mark T. Brown. D.W. is a great little character full of spunk and curiosity and I must admit that I enjoy reading about her along with my daughter! This book is one of her favorites and must be read every night at bedtime or like a previous reviewer stated, she says "Mommy, D.W. Picky Eater" until I agree to read it. She has even memorized parts of it and pretends to "read" it herself. It is a delightful book that will soon become a favorite of any child's library even if he or she is not within the recommended age group that this book calls for.

how can you rate a book before you read it?Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on November 29, 2019
Pop up prevents reading so how can it be rated? How stupid to have a minimum number of words. to to to to
So goodReviewed in Spain 🇪🇸 on October 3, 2018

Very good story to read to the kids.
Just as cute as I rememberedReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on January 7, 2021
I loved this book as a kid because it reminded me of my sister, who didn't entirely hate teasing when compared to DW, who was very reasonable about her picky eating. What kid doesn't relate to refusing to try some of those foods or getting surprised by good/not bad spinach dishes? I'm just happy after taking a walk down memory lane, and not finding anything horrible in the background. (The adults were all fine. )

For Persnickety Appetites EverywhereReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on November 24, 2022
I read this book each year to my kindergarten students during National School Lunch Week. We do a week of funny food stories and activities. They love talking about which foods they don't like or which "unusual" foods they have tried. Many of them have seen the TV series, but didn't realize there were books with the characters of Arthur and DW and their friends. There is a general rush for that shelf in the library once we finish the book.
