Give It a Go, Eat a Rainbow Hardcover – June 14, 2016
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

From the Inside Flap
As an avid artist, Alexander ("Alex") Guylay, 13, spends hours sketching, outlining and coloring characters he creates.
Alex is following in the footsteps of his Grandmother Marilyn who received her Masters in Art from the prestigious Art Institute of Chicago. In both 2015 and 2016, Alex won Awards (Silver and Bronze) for Academic Merit in Art, a high distinction for his dedication to the subject matter.
When conceptualizing her new children's book on eating well, Give It a Go, Eat a Rainbow, Alex's mom Kathryn Kemp Guylay knew immediately that her son's artwork would be an ideal fit for the book. They applied augmented reality, an art medium that mixes real life photography with Alex's whimsical hand-drawn images.
Alex knows how to properly fuel his body, especially for activities he enjoys like: alpine skiing, hockey, mountain biking and hiking. From a young age, Alex has absorbed and embraced nutritional advice in a fun, actionable way. His warm and witty sense of humor allows him to share information about healthy living in a way that is high impact and well-received by other children.
Alex finds inspiration for his illustrations from artists Jake Parker, Alan Blackwell, Matthew Armstrong and his art teacher Cara Frost. Alex is a middle schooler in Sun Valley, Idaho.

Now, I have young Grandkids. 3 of them eat very healthy and 3 of them don't.
My one Granddaughter who is only 4 loves carbs, cheese, sweets and needs to learn to eat more fruits and vegetables. I am surprised because her mother knows to feed her healthy. I can't figure out why she doesn't. The kid is tired all the time. Has no stamina and complains of belly aches.
I plan on giving this book to that Granddaughter and her Mother in hopes that they read it and something clicks in their heads. I hope from reading this book they figure out what they are doing wrong, and why she is having stomach problems at such a young age.
Before I give it to the granddaughter who needs it, I read it to my other Grandkids. We made a plate of food from the rainbow. I let them choose what they wanted in their rainbow. They loved doing this with me, and because they had a hand in making it, they ate it all up.
This interactive book starts out with a young boy named Blake who is sleepy, has tummy aches and just can't keep up with the other kids. Blake likes to eat cookies, candies and all things sweet. One day, Blake meets a friend who helps teach him about nutrition, using fruits and vegetables of rainbow colors.
What a fun way to teach kids about healthy eating. If you have a picky eater in your home, this book could help them in a fun interactive way to choose foods that are healthy for them.
So.... Give it a go, Eat a rainbow!!
Like this approach to get kids to eat more healthier. Starts out and we learn that Blake is not feeling so well. He only likes candy and cookies and things that are sweet.
The words are rhyming and easy to read on some of the backgrounds.
He meets a new friend and he tells Blake how he can get more energy-enough so he can play.
There are notes for the parents to ask the child while they are reading along with them to pick out what foods are red and what part of the body they are good for.
Like a mini quiz and you've been given the answers to, if you were paying attention. Really like blue and purple pages.
It's funny because as a psychologist who has authored a book for helping children to stop thumbsucking habits, David Decides About Thumbsucking: A Story for Children, a Guide for Parents, I have long known how powerful biblio-therapy can be. Yet I never would have thought of what this book does, which is to impact kids' choices of what foods to eat. Hurray and huge thanks to this clever nutritionist!
I highly recommend also Solving Sleep Problems in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders: A Guide for Frazzled Families. A study researching the impacts of bibliotherapy (though this book is for the parents) versus therapy for families of autistic spectrum kids (and for that matter, any kids) with sleep difficulties, the outcome proved to be that therapy and reading a book could be equally helpful.
The bottom line— Give it a Go, Eat a Rainbow has potential to have strong and positive impacts on the children we love and most want to grow up with healthy eating habits.
ps, This book even motivated me, the grown-up, to pay more attention to how many and which colors I am eating!
Here's what Tristan likes about this book:
1. I enjoyed the rhyming story
2. It was fun to read
3. It told me things about food I didn't know
4. I enjoyed the food pictures the most -- there were good illustrations.
If you have some types of e-reader the wonderful pictures will be in black and white, which is really a shame because this book is full of glorious colour on every page. We recommend buying the print version to enjoy all the pictures. This book is easy to read for children in grade 3 and older. Also would be a good book for them to read to their younger brothers and sisters.
Aug 26th...Since Amazon won't let me leave another comment, I will add onto this one...
Since I love that I've had SO much success with getting my picky eater daughter to try and to now eat fruits and veggies because of this book, I purchased 2 more to send to my neices and nephews! :) SO excited to give it to them!!
Hire an artist to revamp it and I'll give it five stars. I would also recommend it to teachers and parents of young children; especially those that garden or have picky eaters.
