Eat, Leo, Eat! by Caroline Adderson, illustrated by Josee Bisaillon

Poor Leo.  When meal time comes around, he never seems to be hungry.  But after his Nonna tells the story behind the different shapes of pasta in each week's Sunday dinner, Leo digs in.  Caroline Adderson's text and Josee Bisaillon's illustrations reveal a nostalgic love for big family gatherings, the Italian countryside, and a loving, extended family.

Eat, Leo, Eat creatively teaches several different pasta shapes while telling a cute story and introducing several Italian words and phrases.  They include a brief glossary of Italian words, and an illustrated guide to the types of pasta.

I would love to join Leo for Sunday dinner at Nonna's!
