Lil L. Alexander
There are six stories in this little book that all center around fruits and vegetables. Each story is told in a fairy tale style with lyrical and rhyming words. The references to the food is subtle, but still predominate in the story. The authors intent is to encourage healthy eating habits and put a positive light on fruits and vegetables. The illustrations are colorful and fill every page.
My daughter enjoyed the book and asked me to read a couple of the stories again. I'm not sure if the book encouraged her to eat more vegetables, but she did say the stories made her hungry. I would recommend this book for the entertaining stories; the subtle health messages were an added bonus. If you look closely the illustrations of the scenery are often made to look like fruits or vegetables. So this adds another aspect to the story that children will enjoy.
I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
