The Battle of the Vegetables
The Battle of the Vegetables
Leeks who believe a cow is one of Santa’s reindeer, carrots who accept an invitation to a party given by rabbits, and a leek and carrot couple whose romance precipitates total vegetable warfare are the hapless protagonists in these satiric, snarky stories. Hardcover

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2-True to its title, this brief book and CD introduce 10 interactive songs, some Loeb originals, all designed for maximum movement and rhythm. Popular folk or camp tunes include "Miss Mary Mack," "Peanut Butter and Jelly," "Do Your Ears Hang Low?" and "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes." Each spread provides the lyrics and cartoon images, giving instruction for movement. Occasional boxed instructions give additional information about the song or performance tips. While adults can use the book as a source for the lyrics, the lack of contrast between background and fonts, and cluttered images or decoration create pages that are challenging to read. The CD is essential to the book, as no musical notation is included, and it is definitely the highlight of this collaboration. With vocals by Lisa Loeb, Dan Petty, Michelle Lewis, and the Campers, joining acoustic guitar, bass, drums, piano or keyboard, the recording presents a varied collection of songs to encourage participation from a rhythmic stomp ("Everybody Wake Up") to a lyric sun salutation with yoga movement ("Hello Today"). A general purchase with a sprinkling of humor that's guaranteed to leave a smile on the face of listeners.-Mary Elam, Learning Media Services, Plano ISD, TXα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

According to an opening author’s note from Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Loeb, this book is meant “to make you get up out of your chair!” And this collection of 10 songs (with an accompanying CD) will likely cause little ones to do just that. The energy is practically radiating off the pages, with retro-cool illustrations that fill the page, a fun design, and a mixture of classic songs and Loeb’s own creations, some of which were written with the help of friends. There’s old-favorite “Miss Mary Mack,” which includes the clapping pattern many adults will remember from their own childhoods; “Do Your Ears Hang Low?,” also complete with hand movements; and “Hello, Today,” a sun salutation of sorts, with a few very basic yoga poses included. Each song has a brief introduction in which Loeb offers up simple instructions for bopping along to the song (“A tennis racket makes a great guitar!”) Many kids may be too young to follow along with the book, but if adults master the moves (easy to do) and pop in the CD, you’ll have a dance party in no time. Preschool-Grade 1. --Ann Kelley

We just love Lisa Loeb. This CD won't disappoint. We own the Disappointing Pancake CD/book, and we recommend that one as well.

My daughter and I found this at our local library and she immediately took to it. So I decided to purchase it for her for her birthday. All the songs are so great to get up and move every which way -- I feel like a kid again. I was a huge Lisa Loeb fan growing up (still am)so it makes my heart so happy that my daughter can enjoy her tunes as well.She loves following along with the book - the artwork is beautiful! My only complaint is that the CD is rather short. But still totally worth it.

As a long time fan of Lisa Loeb (still love to sing "stay" at karaoke!), I decided to purchase this book as a gift for my little niece. As soon as I popped the CD into the stereo, she was movin' and shakin instantly! The songs are so much fun, both the classic ones and the new ones. As a longtime yogi I was pleased that "Hello Today" featured relaxing sun salutations. The illustrations are super cute too. Great gift for little kids or new parents.

Thank you for a thoroughly adult-enjoyable kids CD. We borrowed this from the library and had to buy our own copy, The book has really great illustrations and my daughter, age 3, knew all the words to all the songs within a week. Some classic kids songs, but done in a non-kid way.

We borrowed this from the library for a road trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains and loved it so much we bought our own. Then we bought a second as a classroom Christmas gift at the day care my 3 year old attends. She loves to hear it at "school" too!

My toddler absolutely loves this cd. I'm pretty sure he knows all the songs by heart and I get requests to play specific songs every time we are in the car. I find myself singing along too - very catchy tunes!

My Daughter loves her other book and CD, Silly songs. My Daughter couldn't wait to hear this one. She loves this one just as much as the other one. It's a great CD to get you and your family moving!

My personal favorite is the Monster Stomp although my niece is so fond of the first track "Air Band", she rarely let's me listen to it. She, 3 years old, loves to scrunch up her face and pretend to play the air guitar and air drums, as sounded off by the lyrics. It's incredibly sweet and funny. Lisa Loeb has a wonderful mix of uplifting songs to dance around to as well as mellow ones but all have fingerplay/choreography for young ones to move with, as well. Our second-favorite is what we call 'The Yoga Song', actually titled "Hello Today".
