Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
One of five in the "Food Zone" series, this edition, using a variety of interesting graphics and layout discusses the vegetable group of foods. Overall, it "describes the growing cycle, how it makes it to your table and why it is important nutritionally." A colorful map of the world illustrates where various kinds of vegetables predominate. Remaining pages use photos, drawings, and text in a scrapbook-like fashion to discuss how we eat vegetables, why our body needs them, and how selected vegetables are produced. Explanations are often so brief that they seem inadequate, for example, broccoli is described as good for your "nervous system." This will have little meaning for elementary-aged students or anyone, for that matter. Throughout, recipes such as vegetable pizza and activities such as growing a zucchini plant are included. A glossary, index, and notes for parents and teachers are included. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3–Parker explains in simple language how and where the world's most common foods (except beans, for some reason) are commercially raised or cultivated, harvested, and offered to consumers. He also describes their nutritional contents, supplies multiple recipes and projects that range from easy to ambitious, and closes each volume with a page of activities and discussion topics for adults. Though rightly regarding tomatoes as fruits, in general he's looser with his definitions–slipping nuts into the meat and fish volume, counting mushrooms as a vegetable, and treating sweet corn as both a grain and a vegetable. The layout is a little cramped, but overall these are bright, inviting, and well-designed introductions to a topic of universal interest.
