               No New Foods
               by Mary Roth
“No, I don’t want to try it!” Becca cried. She did not
  want to eat the new dish that her mom had
  made. Becca had tried a new food once, and
  didn’t like it at all. “maybe you will like this,”
  Mom coaxed. Becca took a tiny piece. She
  looked at it. She smelled it. She slowly put the
  piece in her mouth and started to chew. “It isn’t
  so bad,” she thought. Becca tried another piece,
  and then another. Before she knew it, her plate
  was empty! Mom grinned. Becca grinned back.
  She liked the new food after all. “May I have
  more ,please?” Becca asked Mom.
