Editorial Reviews

Review

“56 fully color-illustrated pages about plant magic was easily digestible to my chapter-book-reading vegan daughter. I left it on the kitchen table, knowing she’d see it. Presto! She read it in one sitting over breakfast and when I asked her what she thought, she said ‘Three stars. [out of three] And I want to make the recipe in the back.’ Score! This book is a winner ... especially since it interests her in eating green.”
—Huyen Macmichael, reviewer for VegBooks.org

“Green Smoothie Magic is a captivating story of an adventurous boy who learns how to be healthy in an enjoyable way. … Positive and empowering”
Evolving Wellness

“[Green Smoothie Magic is] a wonderful kids book that serves as a response to the crisis of childhood obesity with a story that makes children excited about nutrition and healthy foods. … What I loved [about the story] is how making the smoothie involved the entire family and showed the importance of getting kids involved in making their own food.”
—Michelle Carr, blogger at Until Every Cage --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Last night I read Green Smoothie Magic to My 6 year old beautiful Zoe and her amazing almost 5 year old sister Nellie Lucille... Big sister Stella Rae was reading her own book in the loft space we have, but would pull away to interject her knowledge of trees. Throughout the night Zoe and Nellie both developed coughs and when they woke up in the morning they wanted to care for their bodies by drinking green smoothies. As a mother and someone whom is health oriented I have been drinking green smoothies daily for almost 5 years now, nothing is more sweet than watching your children take on the healthy habits you model as a parent. This book is a sweet addition to our lives, Thank you Victoria!

Green Smoothie Magic is written in first person and the story is told by a six year old boy named Nic. He tells us about his family and about the day his dad told him about trees. By the end of the story his family is beginning to drink green smoothies because of what he learned about plants. This book is a very good example of giving a child information in a format that he enjoys.

Victoria has done it again! My kids and I were moved by this book to try a green smoothie recipe offered in the back. If you want to inspire kids to be curious about the power of eating greens, this is the book for you! Victoria Boutenko and her children have a series of books that would inspire adults and children of all ages to use green smoothies to feel as vital and strong as a mighty oak tree! The illustrations are beautifully done too!

I have nothing against green smoothies but Victoria Boutenko is a liar and a person with no conscience. She claims that she teachers at Southern Oregon University on her Russian website (http://doktorzelen.com/about-victoria-boutenko) and that is not truth. Victoria gave deeply anti-American untruthful interview to a Russian journalist where she described the life in the USA. I don't know how much she was paid for that interview but it appears that she would say anything in order to be paid. "Americans live in toxic houses", "doctors are paid 30% commission for the drugs they prescribe and that is totally legal in the USA", "highly educated people can't find jobs and they have to work as waitresses or at Costco", "Americans drive old cars", "students don't study hard, they just drink and use narcotics", "tub water in the USA contains medications", "many people in the USA wear second hand clothes", "they (Americans) don't have money to travel", "they are illiterate", "according to statistics, every fourth American reads by syllables", "according to statistics, every American child is exposed to bad advertisement 12 hours a week", "100,000 American girls are sex slaves", "a person was arrested and brought to jail because he collected rain water on his property but that water belongs to state, he was deprived of food and water in jail", "everybody have guns", "Russian people are more educated than Americans", etc. She's heard that "special chips are added to medications so the doctors know whether their patients took them and it is done without patients' permissions".Read more ›
