Most goats eat only “junk food”—boxes, newspaper, old shoes, and tin cans, but not Gregory. He prefers foods such as fruits, vegetables, eggs, fish, bread, and butter. His parents don’t understand and take him to the doctor and they work together to find a healthy balance of Gregory’s meals. Youngsters with a parent or guardian are invited to join us for a reading of Gregory is a Terrible Eater by Mitchell Sharmat, followed by a short discussion on healthy eating and a drawing activity. Healthy snacks will be served. Please register in advance at the customer service desk, or by calling (734) 997-7500.
