"Daddy's Macaroni is a story that Dads will sure relate to: the endless sharing of one's treasured possession that becomes parenthood."

                                                                                                   - Sam Scar- Teacher-Librarian- Orchard Elementary School- Madison, WI

"Although I read it with students who are older than the intended audience, they LOVED it. Some comments included, 'I really liked it!'  

'It's just gross enough for kids.'   'It had a good message.'   Everyone liked the rhyming and students had a good time taking turns

 reading it.  More than one is looking forward to Len's next book!"          -Beth Douma- Teacher- Reading Specialist- Denver Schools, CO

Mattie wanders into the kitchen and catches her Daddy about to dig into one of their favorite meals all by himself, a mound of cheesy macaroni.  Can Mattie convince her dad to share?  And what happens when her twins sisters show up?   Told in playful rhyme, Mattie's excitement, creativity, and cooking skills are tested to their limits.  She learns that taking over lunchtime and keeping everyone happy means fast thinking, hard work, and recognizing the efforts of others.
