He must have been very hungry because... The common housefly is an unwelcome pest that will find its way into your home, school, business, and even the White House to get a meal. But the kindergarten students in Shoo, Fly! are determined not to share their well-balanced lunches with a hungry fly! Children will enjoy reading this delightfully illustrated book on their own, and they will especially love it when you read the story to them and emulate the voice and action of each child. Shoo, Fly! also offers an opportunity for open-ended and critical-thinking discussion questions.

We received this book via the author to give an honest review.

This is a cute and short book. You have a fly who is hungry and enters into a school cafeteria looking to find something delicious. There is a lot of nutritious food for him to eat but of course the kids won't share and they all politely tell him "Shoo fly."
K thought the book was okay he likes the pictures and how the kids had different kinds of foods though he said he wanted more adventure from the fly and wanted it to be longer.
I though the story was good, I liked how it incorporated healthy ending but not forcing it down your throat in a way. 
 The story is repetitive  so that is always great for younger kids especially those learning to read. I plan on reading this to A tonight at bedtime and I know she will enjoy it.
