With highly readable bits and pieces about which yummy foods have which nutrients and vitamins, these books in the Food Is CATegorical series are just right for sharing with young kids, introducing the value of healthy foods and exercise through silly rhymes, puns, and zany color cartoons of cats in wild action. Green Beans, Potatoes, and Even Tomatoes shows that, though often a side dish, the veg is key: “It’s a great source of vitamins A, C, and E.” Sweet potatoes, carrots, and more are portrayed as both wholesome and tasty, and green is cool, too, especially when spinach helps a cat show off its skateboarding skills. Then there is what vitamins do: “Vitamin A helps our eyes and our skin.” Books in the series play with words: fruits are “peachy”; potatoes have eyes; corn grows in ears; cabbage and lettuce are sold in heads. The back matter, featuring the food pyramid and a guide to recommended daily quantities, is part of the fun. Grades K-3. --Hazel Rochman --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.
