Louie will make a veggie lover out of even the pickiest of kids!

At first, Louie isn't so sure about the importance of eating his veggies, however, after a visit from some special friends, Louie decides.."ok, maybe just one bite." Then, before you know it, Louie starts feeling extra super!

This adorable rhythmic book will turn your fussy eaters into veggie loving superheroes! Because haven't you heard?..."Vegetables are superhero fuel!"

This book is INCREDIBLE and worked absolutely perfectly for my 3 and 5 year olds. A lot of books show a kid giving excuses for why they don't want to eat their veggies, which a child can just copy (and most likely will!) In this book, the sweet elephant shows the reader all the amazing things veggies do for your body. My kids are honestly trying new veggies because of this book. My son is inhaling broccoli because it "..keeps his heart and muscles strong" just like Louie. I can't wait to buy her new book on potty training. Silly Louie (as we lovingly call him) is a favorite in our house that they want to read daily.

This book rules. My 5 and 7-year-old love it. I Can't Eat This Stuff teaches the importance of courage and trying something new through the adventures of Louie, the most adorable elephant. Louie has worked wonders for my kids as they are asking to try new veggies (and other healthy foods) because "its superhero fuel." I highly, HIGHLY recommend this book and any others by this author. Just awesome.

Encouraging, exciting, empowering for kids and adults as well! The illustrations are so sweet and I love that the book rhymes (my kids now can recite it by heart). The illustrator must have been a zookeeper or veterinarian or something, and the author must be an outstanding mother. It's reflected in this fabulous kids' book and I can't believe that my kids are now EATING THEIR VEGGIES! Craziness.

A Note from the publisher:

Give Your Child the Courage That He or She Needs to Quickly Conquer New Milestones without Stress or Overwhelm.

The toddler years can be the most amazing, yet challenging times. On one hand, it's hard to believe that your little one is growing up before your eyes (and it's the most incredible joy to be part of) but on the other hand, with growing up comes change and new milestones. These transitions can often be daunting for both the child and the parent. We created the character, Louie, with your child in mind. It's our goal that your child will instantly relate with Louie's adventurous spirit, independence and fun loving nature. He or she will giggle through this sweet, rhythmic story but also learn that change can be overcome by a little courage and that the outcome can actually lead to even more fun and adventure!

Louie's Little Lessons sole focus is to ignite curiosity and motivation when it comes to facing change (then, the technicalities can be taught whichever way you chose), however, the first and most challenging step is establishing the correct mindset. We hope to help your child find his/her desire to embrace their courage for a lifetime!

About the Author

Liz has had a passion for art, creativity, and reading since she was a little girl. After graduating with a BA in Graphic Design and Fine Arts from The University of San Francisco, Liz decided she didn't want to work the typical 9-5 pm job. After many business ideas, tears, late nights and too much coffee - she started Louie's Little Lessons Publishing featuring a brave little elephant named Louie. The series was inspired after having her first child (1 of 3) as she found it difficult to find books that promoted courage while transitioning through tough childhood milestones (potty training, eating well, getting a new sibling, etc). She wanted her children to find their inner courage to embrace change because it was fun, not because they were being told it was something they had to do. Liz's book series has helped thousands of children across the globe and she hopes that it continues to inspire for a lifetime. Through our adorable, rhythmic book series, your child will learn: The importance of trying something new. That our courage lies within ourselves and we can access it at any time. The importance and benefits of curiosity and being open-minded. Overcoming new challenges can often lead to even more fun and adventure! The importance of being well-rested and staying in bed until morning time. How to find security with change in a new environment. That sleep is very important for everyone and allows us to have more fun when we're awake. The importance of consistency. That every challenge becomes easier with time. The amazing feeling of victory, especially when accomplished by oneself. Enjoy!
