Written in rhyming verse with bold and humorous illustrations, all of Michael Wright’s Jake books are fabulous, but this is my favorite. Jake is a VERY picky eater. He wants peanut butter sandwiches for every meal. So his parents come up with a plan: put peanut butter in everything for a week. The results are hilarious. Jake Goes Peanuts is sure to become a favorite of many parents as well as children, whether they’re picky eaters or not.
