Fruits and Vegetables

A fold-out rhyming book showing the progress of a seed, into a plant, then into a crop.

Mouse eats an array of colorful fruits and veggies.

Growing a garden from seeds takes time, but while you dream of the fruits and vegetables to come, the seeds are working hard to grow big and strong.

The food pyramid is unstable without a balanced diet of grains, fruits, vegetables, and dairy. Too many sweets on top can cause the pyramid to come crashing down.

This book highlights fresh fruits and vegetables through the ABC’s, with a fun and creative poem for each letter.  Beyond just the ABC’s are fun facts and activities including recipes and book recommendations about each featured produce. Check out the recipes for Applewiches and Pot of Gold Biscuits that can be made with local Apples and Sweet Potatoes!

This book uses colorful photos and simple, leveled text to introduce children to the food produced from farms around the world.
