The entertaining tale of Gregory the goat will be certain to have your children giggling. Gregory the Terrible Eater is a children's classic that teaches children and parents alike the importance of balanced meals. The publisher's summary reveals the clever plot line:
"Gregory isn't like most goats. Instead of indulging in delicacies like old shoes, boxes, and bottle caps, he prefers to eat fruits, vegetables, eggs, and fish. Mother Goat and Father Goat are disgusted, and after several attempts to get Gregory to eat like a proper goat, they finally take him to see Dr. Ram. But when Gregory finally develops a taste for flat tires and broken violins, he's not just eating like a goat---he's eating like a pig! Will Gregory be able to find a healthy balance before he eats everything in the house?" -- Scholastic
