Hello! This month's picture book group read is Avocado Baby by John Burningham. Please consider joining us for this group read. Cataluna6 will be your leader for the discussion.

As always, you don't need to read the exact edition to participate.

Happy reading! :)


Cataluna6 | 128 comments Did you guys enjoy Avocado Baby? I thought it was pretty funny, I love his little face when he gets cranky. And it's a novel way of getting your kids to eat veggies. They kids enjoyed him booting the kids across the park.

I do keep thinking, if they're all so weak - why don't they pop an avo as well?!


Heather (ladymcheth) | 42 comments I enjoyed it too. Although it did bother me too Cataluna - what didn't they all eat avocados? Seems pretty obvious.

Is it an English thing to call them avocado pears?

I've never heard of them being called avocado pears either.

I like to see that kids still enjoy books that are 30 odd years old. I guess slapstick is ageless - unlike avocados!
