Book Description

This lovely children's book is about how to gain healthy eating habits in a creative way
What can parents do in order to help their kids to eat nutritious food?

Emma is a sweet kindergartener who learns to sprout lentils with her mom in their kitchen in a fun and super-easy way.

After hearing her mom’s explanations on this beautiful process and its enormous benefits, she gets enthusiastic: "I want to sprout!"

Here are several reasons why you should sprout with your kids:
1. It fascinates kids.
A child that sees the legume in its raw form at the beginning will be fascinated to observe how they swell, and later begin to grow small “tails,” eventually growing beautiful long “tails” (those are the sprouts).
2. It's fast and simple.
Unlike what some parents might think, sprouting with children requires only a few minutes a day.
3. It's significantly higher in vitamins, minerals and other nutrients than dry legumes.
4. It's a wonderful parent-child activity.
What better way to spend time with your children than by teaching them how to grow something nutritious? Sprouting is simple enough for preschoolers to understand. And unlike other DIY activities, it doesn’t make a mess!
5. It's a wonderful DIY activity for kids!
After you've done a few successful sproutings with the kids, they can start doing it all by themselves. Yes, it's really that simple!
6. Sprouting makes legumes easier to digest.
7. The sprouts can be used in variety of ways.
Both raw, in a salad or as a snack, or as a healthier alternative to dry legumes in any recipe that calls for them.
8. Sprouting increases the bioavailability of vitamins and minerals in the body.
So how can we sprout legumes easily, and how can parents make their kids enthusiasts about sprout legumes and later eat them?

Read our interesting, fun story to find out!

It's a must for all children and parents, preschool teachers and nutritionists. This children's book gives unique and creative tools for dealing with the issue of healthy eating among young children, a matter that is relevant to every family. Not only does it makes kids understand the importance of eating well, but it also helps to deal with kids who refuse to eat well with a creative, unexpected solution that leaves both children and their parents surprised.

This children's book is a great read for preschoolers.

Editorial Reviews


I have had the pleasure of reading Shir Guez's Emma Learns to Sprout. This ebook is short, yet clear, simple and concise. The language is fun and the illustrations are playful, allowing for easy digestion of the message for any young child. Healthy eating habits and understanding the process of growing food begins with teaching our kids early and this is the perfect book to begin that discussion.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is both a fun and educational book August 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a very clever and instructive book with beautiful drawings that will teach children how some foods sprout and are very healthy. Shir Guez describes the process nicely: how to do it, why do it, how long it takes, and how the foods look during the process.
The story is about Emma’s mom teaching her how to sprout and the value of doing so. Sprouting is taking seed of foods that we love to eat and growing them until they become long, big, and beautiful; foods such as chick peas, lentils, beans, and sunflower seeds. After sprouting, people can eat the item raw or in a salad. Emma and her mom are depicted doing so and Emma enjoys what she is doing.
Children will not only learn how to sprout but most of them will come to enjoy these foods once they learn about them.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Eating Healthy"...... August 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Shir Guez has written a delightful story in which Emma learns to eat healthy by her Mom teaching her how to sprout...If your child is always in the kitchen watching what your doing this is a easy little instruction book that will definitely hold their interest...You and your child can do together besides bake cookies all the time....The illustrations are bright and colorful...

Emma learns to sprout or grow lentils, chick peas, beans and that you can even sprout sunflower seeds...They taste good and full of protein, iron and vitamins...You use them as a snack or raw on salads...

5.0 out of 5 stars A valuable lesson for children on one way to eat healthy September 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
While it takes significantly more effort to prepare sprouts rather than the original seeds, the advantages of eating sprouts generally make it worth it. Allowing the seeds to partially germinate significantly improves the food value of the sprouts over the raw seeds.
This short book for young children describes how to safely make sprouts and the reasons why it should be done. In this case Emma and her mom are making lentil sprouts and after Emma discovers how good they are, the two of them make many different types of sprouts and they are a regular component of their meals.
With the increasing levels of obesity and type II diabetes in the United States, the best preventive measure is to develop a healthy eating lifestyle at a young age. This book is well within the sphere of understanding of the early elementary school student and contains a powerful message that they will find valuable their entire life.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Sprouts July 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Sprouting sometimes means growing up in human talk, but it also means taking seeds of the food we love and growing them until they are ready to eat.

Emma's mom told her one day that she was going to teach her to sprout. After she explained the process to Emma, mom asked Emma what kind of food she would like to sprout. Emma chose lentils because she loved them so much. Once you read this book, you will understand the adventure of sprouting,and the fun Emma and her mother had. Teachers/parents will enjoy reading this book to their children. They can discuss sprouting and growing your own food. The author, Shir Guez, has written a fun book filled with the adventure of growing your own food. All children love to do this. The illustrations are bright and vivid and depict the adventures of sprouting. I liked this story. Showing children how to grow food is exciting and wonderous.

As someone who grew up in the country area of Mississippi, growing food is something that has been a part of my life since I can remember.

I think I enjoyed the process more than anything: knowing that you were planting, nurturing and enjoying something that you had a part in. In EMMA LEARNS TO SPROUT by Shir Guez we are able to see not just the joy that comes from growing your own food but the benefits as well.

Emma learns from her mom about the process, and this makes Emma excited enough to want to be a part of it. What a great way of not just spending time together but teaching along the way!

Shir is able to take her own passion for healthy eating and share it in this book that is sure to be a treat for young readers and those that share the story with them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sprouting for fun and nutrition August 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's entirely coincidental that my wife and I started an herb garden going yesterday, and now we're watching for the seeds to germinate. But that's a little different from sprouting, which Emma and her mom were doing, starting with lentils. Emma's mom was motivated by the prospects of healthier eating for her family. For Emma, it was an adventure that would end with her eating the tasty lentil sprouts.

It's a marvelous story for kids not only for the entertainment value but for the simple step-by-step instructions that Emma and her mom used in their sprouting, which required common items that everyone has in their kitchen, such as a strainer. Kids will enjoy eating the sprouts that they grew themselves, and they'll benefit from the nutritional value of the sprouts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun with education November 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book by Shir Guez is fabulous for children, small ones as well.

Emma and her mom starting to sprout lentils. Mom is showing Emma how to do it and Emma just laves it and watch them growing, as they become tails, laying in the water.

It is fun with education and is cleverly explained how vegetables are growing. In a way that children really like to do it and find out by themselves.

Also the drawings are wonderful.

Loved that little book. So I think, if I, the grown up love that book then children will love it even more.
