FINALLY! THANK YOU! A fun book that entertains and cleverly teaches the concept of good nutrition and a progressive approach to good eating habits. My 6 year old boy/girl twins absolutely love this book and have read it at least 5 times per week since they received it a month ago. Most children fantasize about being super-heroes and now my children are role-playing and fantasizing about being Mitch Spinach and the fun characters in this story. We have made countless healthy smoothies at their request since receiving this book as a present from their grandparents. As a parent, I highly recommend this book if you are interested in adding an exciting and educational story with great characters to your library. BRAVO!

I have been obsessing about the fact that my 8 year old granddaughter has been only eating macaroni and cheese and peanut butter and jelly for the past several years. She won't touch fruit or vegetables. I thought Mitch Spinach might be a good book to help her understand why it's important to try new things and begin to eat healthy food. I sent to the book to her in Chicago, and she read it with my daughter and she began to eat carrots, some fruit and other vegetables. Thank you for writing this book. It really helped.

The Secret Life of Mitch Spinach is a fun and thoroughly appealing book. I purchased one for my six-year-old daughter and just had to send one to my two-year-old nephew as well; both kids loved the story and the vivid illustrations. As an adult, I appreciate this intelligent book and the message it sends: eating well can make you smarter, faster, and better able to solve the problems you may face each day. Mitch Spinach is a hero in our home, and we can't wait to read about his next adventure!

As a Grandmother of 4, I am always searching for a book that is written to teach as well as to be entertaining. Mitch Spinach does just that. The book is well-written with wonderful illustrations, and it contains a wonderful hero who teaches us that good nutrition can make us a better and smarter person. In this day of childhood obesity, it is a delight to read a book that focuses on good nutrition. It will make a great holiday gift for my grandchildren!

We have 3 children ages 8, 6 and 4, and while our daughter is eager to try new foods, our boys are definitely not! We purchased "The Secret Life of Mitch Spinach" to support our good friends, never thinking it would have such an impact on our boys' eating habits. Well, we were happily surprised when the boys actually asked us to prepare some spinach for them. Not only did they *try* a new/healthy food, but they finished their spinach salads, and even asked for it in their lunches the next day!
Needless to say, Mitch Spinach is a superhero in our house!!!

Great book for kids and nice pictures to go along with story. A little pricey but not a standard book. Makes kids want to be healthier and try the Mitch Shake......

A tremendously creative book that inspires children to be both healthy and accountable for their own health. A great story that acts as a motivator for parents to engage their family to make better eating and lifestyle choices. This book is a must read. I applaud the authors especially Dr. Fuhrman for caring so much about our children to insure the nutritional science is accurate and if applied, life changing. Kudos to Hillary and Jeff for having the courage to state what many of us feel. "There is a better way to eat." Here's how.

Buy this book and give it to all your friends, family and schools.

Very good. It appealed to a 12 year old (I am a little old for the "cartoonie" plot, but this isnt aimed at me). The plot is very aimed at kids. The regular super hero action thing. After reading it my daughter wanted a froot smothie with a little spinach in it :-)

This is a great book for kids. Wish I had had something like this when I was a kid. Think I'm going to buy a hard copy for my little cousin.

My kids love the stories and they want to eat the same foods as Mitch. I recommend every family with young kids gets one of these books. Get all in the series because they get better and build on each other.
