Since March is National Nutrition Month this book, "Healthy
Since March is National Nutrition Month this book, "Healthy Foods from A to Z," was a great resource in the instruction of clients about the various nutrient-rich foods we have available to us. Being that it gives the information in both English and Spanish, that was a plus. And the guides the book has inside are great for giving the clients plenty of useful details about the foods displayed in the book. The pictures are great for showing how the foods look for people that may not be familiar with the food or foods that the book mentions, for each letter of the alphabet. **Great resource for health, nutrition, or wellness instruction.Was this review helpful?

If you like healthy food, you'll like this book
Do you know what a berenjena is? Would you be willing to eat a zarzamora? Youngsters can traipse through the alphabet, learning about different fruits, vegetables, grains, and other healthy foods, while reinforcing their ABCs, in both English and Spanish. The Spanish name for the book is Comida sana de la A a la Z. Colorful illustrations of charming faces constructed by famous food-photographer Renee Comet out of the various foodstuffs will encourage children to return to the book over and over. By the way, zarzamora is Spanish for blackberry, and berenjena is Spanish for eggplant. Have you ever tried eggplant? What about a quince (membrillo)?Was this review helpful?

In addition to the text of the book where the foods are pictured alphabetically and identified by both English and Spanish names, readers are given instructions on how to make their own healthy food face and provided with other healthy food projects to do which involve art, language, science, and math skills. There are also seven pages of “Did You Know…?” facts that will highlight the nutritional value of seventy of the foods pictured throughout the book for parents to share with their children. Healthy Foods from A to Z will be beneficial for all youngsters but can be especially helpful for bilingual families and those wishing to expose students to the Spanish language (or even vice versa). Did you know that strawberries are a member of the rose family? I really like strawberries. I also like this book.
