Children's Book Review: Rah, Rah, Radishes! A Vegetable Chant
Rah, Rah, Radishes! A Vegetable Chant
Written and Pictures by: April Pulley Sayre
Published by: Beach Lane Books, 2011
Know any kids who don’t like veggies? Here is a book that’s sure to change their hungry minds! With a raucous, rhyming text, Rah, Rah, Radishes! celebrates fresh vegetables, nature’s bright colors, and the joy of healthy eating. The book’s interactive spirit encourages kids to join in on the read-aloud fun, and little ones won’t be able to resist the book’s vibrant photographs—they’re a feast for the eyes!
* Told in rhyme, I thought this was a great children's picture book about vegetables. The photographs were taken at the South Bend Farmer's Market and feature vegetables that I had never seen before....kohlrabi?!! Even for vegetables your children may be familiar with, like carrots or peppers this book will offer something new for them to look at. Have they ever seen red or yellow carrots? Or Brussels sprouts growing on the plant? This book is truly a feast for the eyes. It was enjoyable not only to the kids but myself as well, a lover of food!
Family Rating: 1 1/2 thumbs up!
