School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2–In a superhero suit that features the internal organs of the upper body, Slim Goodbody introduces the groups of the U.S. Food Pyramid. Information includes the different varieties of food found around the world, the path from nature to plate, health benefits and recommended daily servings, and acknowledgment of other dietary recommendations. The sensibility of the series is like that of an educational television show, with children dressed in T-shirts picturing the featured food sharing hosting duties with Slim, and the occasional singsong rhyme, such as the one in Dairy: “I think it’s amazing/How milk in your glass/Starts out in a field,/With a cow munching grass.” There is a picture glossary instead of a textual one, which is fine for “avocado” and “eggplant,” but not so much for “kohlrabi” and “falafel.”
