This is a very cute story about a little girl making pink cupcakes with her mom. After eating too many she turns pink! Her doctor orders no more pink foods, she should only eat green. Pinkalicious of course disobeys and eats one too many cupcakes. After her shade of pink changes, she realizes she must do as the doctor ordered, with a funny suprise in the end. My girls really liked this book. The illustrations are crisp and bright and go perfectly with the story.
Example quote: "My face was pink, my hands were pink, and my belly was the color of a sunset."
Teaching opportunity: Take this opportunity to discuss what foods are healthy to eat. Pinkalicious has to eat green foods to return to her normal color. Pick another color and talk about what fruits and veggetables are good for your body. Take the story to the kitchen and allow the children to help prepare a healthy snack for that afternoon.
