(PRWEB) November 14, 2012 -- Trying new things isn’t always easy, as Kifaru and his friends learn in this new illustrated children’s book. Most kids bring traditional lunch food, but Lily, a vegetarian, brings something unusual to share with everyone. Will Kifaru work up the courage to have a small culinary adventure and taste something new?

When Lily first invites Kifaru to try her tofu burger and describes how it’s just a burger made from soybeans, he tells her “Next time.” It’s so unusual he can’t stop thinking about the burger and even has a nightmare about it. But when he forgets his lunch the next day, it’s Lily to the rescue with an extra tofu burger. Kifaru’s enthusiasm once he finally tastes the burger inspires everyone to sample it.
“Kifaru Tries Something New” invites young children to expand their horizons and try something new. The easy-flowing story works for young readers and read-aloud fun. The book’s colorful, cartoonish illustrations delight the eye and tell a story all their own. The cast of animal characters shares a gentle lesson about taking a chance.
