RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, February 21, 2024 / — Belle Isle Books of Richmond, Virginia, is pleased to announce the upcoming release of a new children’s picture book, ‘Bokky for Breakfast,’ written by Dr. Lisa Curry and illustrated by Kelly O’Neill.

Coaxing toddlers to try different foods can be tough—but so can understanding what they want when they have something in mind! Little Jossie is a three-year-old with big feelings, and big ideas about what she wants for breakfast. Kids and parents alike will delight in joining Jossie and her mother for this mealtime mystery as Mommy tries her best to discover exactly what her daughter wants to eat.

Cheerfully illustrated with vibrant artwork featuring expressive characters and a variety of yummy breakfast offerings that will inspire and encourage child readers to find their own favorite foods, ‘Bokky for Breakfast’ is scheduled for release on February 22, 2024.

‘Jossie is NOT a typical toddler.

Jossie’s favorite time is mealtime. She loves trying new, yummy foods.

Sometimes yummy foods are crunchy. Sometimes yummy foods are soft. Sometimes yummy foods taste salty, and sometimes they taste sweet.

But when Jossie asks Mommy for a certain yummy food for breakfast one morning, it’s not what you would expect!

Will Mommy figure out what Jossie wants to eat?’
