School Library Journal

Gr 1-5 A colorful compendium of poems, geography, jokes and riddles, fun projects, gardening activities, recipes, recommended reading, and Web sites to explore. Part 1 contains poems related to food arranged in an A-to-Z format. For example, "Let's start with A for applesauce./We'll show the apples who's the boss-/We'll squeeze and squish and squash and squush/Until the apples turn to mush." A spread following the poems addresses the questions: "Do you know when we call something a fruit?" and "Do you know when we call something a vegetable?" Part 2, for older children (and for adult/child sharing), offers activities and factual information about the food introduced. Recipes galore, with eye-catching titles and ingredients, will provide hours of culinary fun for adults and children, with names such as "banana soft serve," "sweet orange carrot coins," and "purple parmesan." Children will also learn how to grow a lemon plant and sprouts in a jar, and laugh at some great jokes and riddles.-Augusta R. Malvagno, Queens Borough Public Library, NY
