Large and colorfully illustrated pictures are found on each of the 32 pages plus some wonderful recipes that are geared for children so they might actually enjoy their fruits and vegetables.
Marianne seems to love rhyming in her books and this one doesn't disappoint. Readers can play a guessing game as to what the vegetable is that is being described, then turn the page to find the answer and a recipe using that vegetable! Each illustration has a close up of leaves and very often an insect or bird. In the back of the book there is information about what a plant really needs, including pollinators...and she asks readers to find them in the book:) Also found on the final pages is a wealth of information including a brief history of each plant, cooking basics, plant parts, and extended reading list.
For educators clamoring for Common Core sources this book can address many of the standards on its own. For parents craving some fun book to help them encourage their children to eat healthy, this book is a gem.
Add this title to your collection whether it is in a home or school.
I feel inspired to start a garden at home!
