Would You Like a Banana?

Author and illustrator: Yasmeen Ismail

Hesitations around foods are explored through two voices in this fantastically funny book. There’s a logical, coaxing adult voice, asking questions and making suggestions to tempt our primate protagonist to try foods. Then there’s the surly voice that insists it won’t eat a banana, a refrain readers will delight in chanting!
