THREE GRIN SALAD
"A Recipe for a Happy and Healthy Life"
by
Aja King

Three Grin Salad is a delightful book that introduces healthy living and eating habits to young children.

Tucked within the pages between her favorite recipes of grins, gratitude, peace, love and joy, Aja tells of her daily life and how to play to be a healthy, happy kid.

Illustrator Lisa Taron has cleverly drawn images that keep the story moving and pulls the reader along.

Three Grin Salad is a lovely book written by a ten year old that will find its audience of other young children wanting to know more about how this talented young author lives.
Congratulations Aja!

This book is the master piece of a ten year old genius! She talks about the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to food, sleep and activity.
I'm thinking the kids who don't read it are definitely missing out. This little book is jammed full of clever 'takes' on everything a kid who cares about himself should know and practice. Should be reading requirement for all youngsters!

"Three Green Salad" was written after 10 year old Aja King got the idea from a home work assignment while attending school in Shangri, China. The teacher asked the class to come up with a "potion." Aja wrote a potion for being "mad." Later she changed the idea around and decided to write recipes for happy feelings.

Aja puts grins and laughs, smiles and hurrahs in her recipes. Other recipes call for hugs, kisses, and snuggles. Aja also included a recipe for her favorite "smoothie."

Sandwiched in between her fun filled recipes are ideas on healthy living, including good sleep, good eating habits, and lot of fresh air and outside play. Clever illustrations done by Lisa Taron make the words jump off the page for fun reading.

The message of healthy living written for kids by one of their peers makes this a unique and important book. This is a book for the "kid's library," for elementary school libraries, and for the pediatrician's waiting room. A unique challenge for a happier, healthier childhood.
