Maybe a little long for read aloud but super silly. A girl travels to Scotland and throws her oatmeal out the window of the boat every morning. A little baby sea monster, Nessie, eats all the tossed out oatmeal and gets bigger and bigger, and viola the Loch Ness monster is born. ( )

This is a fantastic tale of how the loch ness monster started as a tiny worm that discovered oatmeal that was thrown out a porthole by a little girl that despised oatmeal. So, everyday the worm ate the oatmeal that was thrown out and grew bigger and bigger. Eventually, the little girl’s boat docked in Loch Ness and the worm, who was now so big they called him a monster, showed his face while searching for oatmeal. This adorable Bluebonnet Book 2009-2010 is written by a neurologist who writes in her author’s note about the genetics of picky eaters but doesn’t touch on the possibility of a real Loch Ness monster. The illustrations are wonderful and even the font chosen is a winner! Love this book! ( )

This book gives a funny and entertaining explanation for how the Loch Ness Monster came to be. At the same time, it justifies why it's ok to be a picky eater. The author, a Harvard educated neurologist, includes a great afterward explaining how picky eating is genetically determined. This would make a great read-aloud for children of all ages. ( )

A very cute tale about the genesis of the Loch Ness Monster and the girl it loves because she feeds him oatmeal. Very sweet and fun. The only strange part is that the title claims this is about picky eating, but really isn't. ( )
