Tony Baroni Loves Macaroni

Cover: 'Tony Baroni Loves Macaroni'

Staff Review: "Tony Baroni Loves Macaroni" by Marilyn Sadler, Lucie Crovatto, Chris Robertson


Tony Baroni loves macaroni so much that he eats it for every meal! His Nonna, or Grandma, tries to persuade Tony to eat a variety of other pastas in order to have him eat something else until he finally decides to eat something different entirely. This is such a light hearted book with some very beautiful illustrations! My three-year-old loved this book, and also loves macaroni! It was fun to interact with my daughter while reading this book because she was introduced to lots of different kinds of pastas she had never heard of before. We went to the store and saw some that were mentioned. This makes the book more than a book and into an interactive experience. I highly recommend it!
