Oodles of Noodles

Oodles of Noodles - Diana Hendry What fun to read aloud! Ava and Ben's mom receives a pasta maker for her birthday - she is excited, the children are not. After Ava and Ben go to school their mom tries her new machine. It works too well, wrapping her and everything else up. The children run to her rescue.

The type style varies, emphasizing certain words and attempting to visually appear like the object they describe. For example, noodles is always in a loopy script style. Illustrations are detailed and colorful.

Consider reading it to celebrate World Pasta Day (October 25).
