Meet the Author

Karen Fine began writing her children’s picture book series on healthy eating in 2004 when her oldest son became very ill. As he healed, she was inspired by both of her young sons and wanted to take the illness as an opportunity to instill healthy eating habits at an early age. “If my boys can name every character from their favorite books, TV shows and movies in great detail at the age of four, then they can also learn to differentiate what makes some foods healthier than others.” With colorful pictures and stories told in rhyme, Karen Fine makes it fun for children to learn how to make great nutritional choices. She devotes her time to writing and she also pens stories about her simple solutions for busy families living gluten free on her blog at www.momcooksglutenfree.com.

    I love this book!

    I love reading Karen's books which teach children and adults about healthy living, dietary issues and choices. I have a child with a gluten intolerance and a heavily vegetarian diet, and this books is a delight for him. He has taken it into school to share in 2nd grade, to help explain to people why he eats the foods he does and how certain foods upset his stomach. Her 'Eat Without Wheat' book is fantastic, and this just hinges on that same wonderful concept of educating and raising awareness about healthy eating and diet choices. I donate all of her books to my school library and the teachers love the concepts. In today's society of unhealthy eating, this series of books is a wonderful tool in helping children make healthy and wise choices regarding the foods they eat, which molds their bodies for life.

    My Son loves this book

    The mixture of a "Veggiesuarus" and a land of colorful vegetables, send a subtle message that is wrapped in fun. I love this book and author. The illustrations are engaging enough to grasp the attention of my two year old. (He is learning all of his veggies now) And my ten year old has had some thought provoking comments about why she needs energy with a little less candy. Well, she still thinks she NEEDS chocolate, but veggies are back on the menu. If you care about your kids and their health, this is a great way to start them early.

    Nutrition is Finally Fun!

    Our family is so very pleased with "Veggiesaurus Lex", as it portrays the consumption of fruits and vegetables in fun as opposed to a chore. Gone are the days of "you'll grow big and strong like a cartoon character if you eat your spinach"... The reality is, our children will naturally feel better with a balanced diet and they are capable of understanding this concept! The colorful illustrations are wonderful, and the rhyming story makes for an easy yet fulfilling read. I look forward to Nature's Candy!

    Making Nutrition FUN!

    Karen Fine's first book "How I Eat Without Wheat" was very entertaining and educational but specific to children who need to eat gluten-free. Her second book, "Nature's Candy", and now "Veggiesaurus Lex", provide all children with a fun way to learn about adding fruits and vegetables to their diet---while being thoroughly entertained by the delightful illustrations of Russ Novak. I will definitely be reading these to all my grandchildren as well as giving them as gifts to friends with children. Might even teach healthier eating to some adults I know!

    Great addition to child's library

    My 7-year old loves reading this book to us at bedtime. The not-so-subtle emphasis on nutrition gets the point across without being "preachy" and the illustrations are adorable.

    We enjoyed this book at our house

    What great illustations. My 6yr old loves Dinosaurs and really liked this book. It is funny and struck a note with my kids about choosing healthier options. We have also read the Eating Gluten Free book and loved that too. I will be coming in to buy natures candy soon.

    Guiding children's food choices in terms to which they can relate.

    As adults we admire the energy of children and tend to forget that children can be as lethargic as adults, often as a result of poor choices in food. This book does a superb job of putting the selection of healthy vegetables into the hands of children in a cartoon animal context with which they are immediately familiar. It is a fun book to read.
