Children's Literature - Hazel Buys
Eating seems so natural that explaining that food is good for you seems beside the point. But Orme presents familiar foods and simple answers, building a case for eating a balanced diet full of the nutrients we need. Each two-page spread asks a question—for example, "What's so good about vegetables?"—and explains what foods are included in the group, what nutrients the group provides and how to identify foods in the group. Color images of the foods are collaged on simple contrasting-color backgrounds with labels in simple text. Images of children eating and playing are interspersed throughout, giving a visual push to the idea that good food and good fun go together. This book, one of the "Science Everywhere!" series, succeeds in introducing good nutrition while making reading appealing and the subject matter easy to understand. The book concludes with a series of questions and answers about the information covered in the text, a glossary (words printed in bold in the text) and an index, and is recommended for a pre-school or early elementary school classroom or library.
