How to Eat Breakfast
By Gene Twaronite, Illustrated by Diane Ronning. Independently published. $12.99 paperback, $5.95 Kindle.
Who doesn’t love a scrumptious breakfast? A yummy stack of pancakes is just waiting for her to dig in, but Wanda’s imagination is on the loose, conjuring up what her breakfast might look like if she were a whale or a giraffe, a hummingbird or a koala in a eucalyptus tree. A vulture’s breakfast probably wouldn’t be much fun to eat, she supposes, but if she were a termite she could eat the whole house! Tucsonan Gene Twaronite is a poet, essayist, and children’s author who knows a thing or two about making breakfast entertaining, while imparting a bit of rhyming nature lore. This latest offering, great for a read-aloud, includes lively illustrations by Diane Ronning, who likes to draw and paint at the breakfast table.

I’m excited to announce my first picture book How to Eat Breakfast has just been published by Lyric Power Publishing, which offers “delightful children’s books designed to make learning about science fun.”
The book begins as her mother sets down a plate of pancakes for Wanda and says, “Now eat them while they’re still hot.” But Wanda would not. She just sat and stared at her feet dreaming of other ways to eat. So begins Wanda’s imaginary adventures in watching how animals eat.
I am fortunate to have teamed up with talented illustrator Diane Ronning who brought my words to life on the page. Watch her video here to see a sample of her magic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJgLF9gbbpA
