Catherine Steigerwald
My daughter Kelsi, age 7, just finished your book, The Secret Life of Mitch Spinach. She loved it! Kelsi
actually went on to say that she would like to start a bookshelf with all of her favorite books and include this one!!! She has read many, many books, but this "bookshelf" idea came to life upon completion of The Secret Life of Mitch Spinach! Thank You!
Dr. Neal Barnard, M.D.
The Secret Life of Mitch Spinach shares an important story–the power of plant foods . . . Mitch Spinach is a great role model for all the things children need help with—eating well, kindness, compassion, helpfulness, and modesty. The fun and engaging story of Mitch Spinach will inspire you and your children to explore the many health benefits of plant foods.

I just finished reading “The Secret Life of Mitch Spinach”
and I love it! You did a great job! I so appreciate the lessons that were instilled in your book about healthy eating while making it so entertaining for children. Educating parents about healthy eating and the statistics of proper vegetables and how they affect our health was such a nice bonus. What parent wouldn't love this for their child and it is always nice when we learn something new as well as our child.

Received our book and already have a request from the kids to try out the smoothie recipe in the back! Great story, wonderful art, very nicely done! I'll be taking it by the school and showing the school board as well, hopefully we can get this book onto school shelves for maximum exposure! I'll put in a request at the library while I'm at it. Every kid should read about this cool new Hero!

The Proof is in the Spinach!? We have 3 children ages 8, 6, and 4, and while our daughter is eager to try new foods, our boys are definitely not! We purchased The Secret Life of Mitch Spinach never thinking it would have such an impact on our boys' eating habits. Well, we were happily surprised when the boys actually asked us to prepare some spinach for them. Not only did they “try” a new/healthy food, but they finished their spinach salads, and even asked for it in their lunch.

Meet the Author

Frustrated by the lack of a healthy, smart, cool role model for their five and six year-old children, Hillary Feerick and Jeff Hillenbrand created the Mitch Spinach children’s book series. They decided to combine their expertise (Jeff holds a BS in Exercise Physiology, and Hillary holds a BA and MA in English) to teach kids about the importance of eating healthy foods and reduce the number of children struggling with weight, chronic colds, ear infections and other nutrition-related problems.

The Secret Life of Mitch Spinach was written in collaboration with renowned, board-certified family physician, Joel Fuhrman, M.D., who specializes in preventing and reversing disease through nutritional and natural methods. To get kids on the right track with healthy eating, pick up a copy at USK Karate. You can also learn more nutritional information and order online through this link: http://www.MitchSpinach.com.
