This lunch is also posted over at The Little Crooked Cottage as a Literary Lunch for Mr. Pig's interview with Evie, Simon and Father.. Head over to the fabulous blog of four children's book authors and check out the interview with Evie, Simon and Father to find out what they have in their pockets right now!
Looking for a fun book to teach kids table manners? Kara LaReau's NO SLURPING, NO BURPING! is a funny book teaching kids in a silly way how to mind their table manners!
My kids loves that Father was the one making all the mistakes and could relate to his frustrations trying to remember EVERY table manner rule Evie and Simon (his kids) tried to teach.
Eating fettuccine or spaghetti is messy after all. Although Father does brings messy pasta eating to a whole new level when he tries to eat all the mushrooms at one time ;) My kids loved this page!! They giggled and giggled imagining trying to wind a whole plate of pasta on a fork and trying to eat it. This page inspired our matching Literary Lunch for today!
This lunch to-go in our Planetbox Shuttle for Father should keep him reminded of table etiquette:
- Evie, Simon and Dog grapes (someone after all has to make sure Father minds his manners)
- Spaghetti in a fancy dish with garlic bread utensils and of course a white tablecloth
- and a sweet chocolate biscuit reminder: No slurping, No Burping!
