School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-Both titles use bold color photographs and repetitive vocabulary to teach good nutrition. Each spread has one or two sentences on the left and a complementary illustration on the right. The books briefly describe different types of fruits or vegetables and their value to a healthy lifestyle. The children appear charming, and foods look luscious enough to eat. Informative and enjoyable for the younger set and for independent readers.-Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA (c) Copyright 2010.
