Here's a picture story book that comes close enough to the child's own experience to have real value. The children who love popsicles can't understand why the popsicle man doesn't like his own wares. They get him somewhat worried, he goes to the doctor, who prescribes sun and salt water, but that doesn't cure him. And then he discovers that the hot dog man doesn't like hot dogs, so they trade wares, and each relishes the others, and Mr. Pumps comes to the conclusion that it is all a matter of taste after all. There's humor and a ""lowest common denominator"" in both text and pictures.
