Journey from A to Z and enjoy beautiful photography of exciting farm foods--everything from awesome Asparagus to green tiger Zucchini! Kids will love this new book all about fun foods, and parents will love how it inspires and educates their little ones to be brave, healthy eaters!

My Review:
I took this book while doing childcare for my daughter's dance school and the kids thought it was a neat book and super helpful to teach them and other children about healthy eating and some vegetables that they had never even heard of before. My four year old daughter likes this book, and it's fun teaching her the ABC's along with teaching her about healthy food and veggies. The photographs are amazing and very well done.

  9. I'm the rare breed that prefers veggies over any other foods group and so my five children have a love for them as well. We love to garden and there is nothing sweeter than fresh carrots and lettuce from the garden bed
