Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Zella Cunningham
The "What's on My Plate" series features vegetables in a colorful and easy to read format that will capture the emergent and beginning reader's attention. The book is divided into four chapters. The first chapter explains the MyPlate idea of how much of each kind of food should be eaten daily in order to be healthy. The second chapter talks about the many kinds of vegetables that can be eaten to fulfill that 1? cup daily requirement. Adding vegetables to other foods like scrambled eggs and pizza comprise the third chapter and the ending chapter gives illustrations of what the serving sizes look like for various vegetables. A glossary, an index, and bibliographic sources for additional reading completes this delightful nonfiction book, providing a good tool for reference book study for the non- and early reader. The illustrations throughout the book are colorfully pleasing to the eye. Reviewer: Zella Cunningham
