The Little Boy Who Wouldn't Eat Cheesecake
While World War II is changing the world in major ways, a young boy named Roger finds himself in a different kind of fight—a battle within himself—as he tries to muster up the courage to sample a bite of cheesecake. Yes, that’s right, cheesecake. You see, Roger can't understand how cheese, regularly eaten in his favorite grilled sandwiches, could possibly taste good in cake. He is quite disturbed that others not only find this oddity acceptable but also say it’s delicious. The Little Boy Who Wouldn’t Eat Cheesecake inspires picky eaters and young readers, ages 4-9, to try new things and encourages conversation with older family members and friends about foods they didn't like in childhood (or, at least, thought they didn’t like) and what happened when they actually tried the foods for themselves. A timely story about a preconceived notion being challenged and overcome before it's too late.

Amazon Review | HOPE50

That is the summation of this sweet, short story. It brought back delightful memories of going out to the cafeteria after church with my grandparents. I would take too much food off the line and my grandpa would always say, "Susie, you have eyes bigger than your stomach!" And, of course I wouldn't eat half of it. I had no idea about money/value/etc back then. I would refuse to eat things green! Now? I love all veggies but okra! And, I do admit, I have always loved cheesecake!

Amazon Review | Jennifer Swift

Fun and learning come together in this excellent book about the importance of being brave and trying new things! Just because something sounds one way doesn’t mean it’s going to end up how you imagine, and you should trust the people who love you when they say it’s something good! Sometimes things can be intimidating and scary, but that doesn’t mean we should never give them a chance to change our lives.

Christina Myer’s first children’s book is an absolutely wonderful debut. The story is well-paced and the art is fantastic, and its basis in a true story makes it all the more endearing. Most parents can relate to a child too scared to try something for fear, and for those parents, I highly recommend The Little Boy Who Wouldn’t Eat Cheesecake. A sure classic that will draw your children in again and again!

Loved this short story. Trying new things is always a great idea, I'm glad I bought the book!

Readers' Favorite Five Star Review

Roger Myers loved to take his family out to a nice restaurant for special occasions. His family called him Papa and after dinner, he always asked his grandkids if they had ever heard about the little boy who wouldn't eat cheesecake. Though they had heard the story many times, Joshua, Hannah, and Rex always listened to Papa narrating the story. He told them how in the early forties when he was their age, he would go to Gula's restaurant in Chattanooga, Tennessee every Sunday after church with his parents, and how he refused to have New York Cheesecake for dessert. One Sunday his father wanted him to explain why he disliked cheesecake so much without ever having tried it. His father explained to him that the cheese in cheesecake is white, creamy, and sweet. What happened when Roger tried the cheesecake?

The Little Boy Who Wouldn't Eat Cheesecake by Christina Myers is an adorable story about a young boy, Roger, and his battle with himself when it came to eating cheesecake. The story is a good way for older members of the family to learn how to engage children in food conversations, especially the food they dislike, and why it is important to try the food before deciding to dislike it. Katherine Carver's illustrations are as charming as the story and the characters and will make them real, memorable, and palpable to youngsters. It is a good book for storytelling sessions in homes where there are children, especially if they are fussy about eating certain foods, and in classrooms and school libraries to encourage students to try new and different types of foods before deciding to dislike them.
