Mrs MacCready Was Ever So Greedy - Book Review

We received Mrs MacCready Was Ever So Greedy to review. This is a fun picture book from the Ever So series written by Julie Fenton and illustrated by Jona Jung.

As soon as Miss C saw the cover, she knew the book was similar to Tabitha Posy Was Ever So Nosy and Miss Dorothy-Jane Was Ever So Vain and she couldn't wait to read it.

This story is about a lady called Mrs MacCready who loves to eat. It doesn't matter if the food is healthy or unhealthy, sweet or savory or even if it's full of worms. Miss C was quite grossed out at the worm part, so at least I don't have to worry about her eating any worms during mud pie making. 

Mrs MacCready ends up eating so much that her favourite string vest doesn't fit her anymore. I thought this was fun book to read but also gave me the opportunity to talk to Miss C and ask her to point out healthy foods, sweet foods and snack foods. We also talked about how we need to play a lot, which Mrs MacCready didn't want to do with the Indians in the woods, to get exercise and keep fit.

The pictures are fun and colourful. Miss C loved the ginger cat who kept a close eye on Mrs MacCready and her eating habits. He even brought her some sugar mice.

This is another great book from the Ever So series! You can buy it on Amazon.

We received this book for the purposes of a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
