There are a few things I love about this book. First of all, it's about vegetables. And who doesn't want to teach children about eating their veggies? Secondly, it's just plain fun. It takes us on a rhyming, rollicking tour through a farmer's market past every vegetable you can think of and then some. This book has eye-popping, taste-awakening images of each vegetable in its raw state. And if that's not enough to wake up the senses, it's read like a chant so that your ears and body get to join in on the fun. Who won't stand up and cheer when you hear the first lines?...
Rah, rah, radishes!
Red and white.
Carrots are calling.
Take a bite!
Oh boy, bok choy!
Shout it Out!
No false promises here. If you didn't like brussels sprouts before you read this book, you still might not like them when you're finished but I think you might look at them in a whole new light next time they appear on your plate!
