Wonder at the Magnificence of Vegetables!
Gail Gibbons is a master at illustrating information books with lush, accurate pictures. Children will marvel at the beauty of peppers, beans, corn and peas. And they will learn how these veggies grow, how they get to the story and some really weird trivia, too! Do not be surprised if you child wants to grow her own vegetables after reading this book.
Ideas for Making it Real
Take your child with you to the grocery store or the local farmer's market to choose the week's vegetables. Take your time with this activity - if a child can touch, smell and choose the fresh vegetables for the family meals, they are much more likely to eat them!
Bonus activity: ask you kiddo to help you cook the vegetables he so carefully selected!
