The children who had been eating processed foods find out about how delicious the wild berries of the forrest are served on a burdock leaf.
The children loved the fresh living gifts from nature. This is conscious reading for young children. Grandparents could buy this for their
grandchildren as well as parents! I am a teacher and got this book for the children in our school.
beautiful books for children of any age. I ordered this book, as well as "Fruits That I Love," for my 27 month old son. We
both enjoy it so much that I have ordered more as gifts! It is truly a delightful, and beautifully illustrated, book that we
will enjoy for a very long time.
I highly recommend this book!

To his amazement, the humans are friendly and offer him some of their food, including a burger. He eats it and then leaves quickly when he hears his mother calling.
Returning to the woods, he develops an upset stomach from the "human food." Mother Bear explains that human food is not bear food, because bears do better on "rasp-bear-ies, straw-bear-ies, black-bear-ies and blue-bear-ies."
He returns the next day to the campground with his gifts of berries and is delighted when the children eat and enjoy his food. He runs home happily!
The story has a wonderful message without being pedantic. I think I would read it to pre-schoolers or elementary children as part of a nutrition lesson.
