Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Peg Glisson
A little girl's body parts keep falling off—"While others are playing, I can't even cough. If I sneeze or I burp, then something falls off." Oh, my! What's wrong? This little girl does not eat her vegetables, preferring cake instead. Consequently she lacks vegetable glue, "Which keeps all your parts/Still sticking to you." Fortunately, her amazingly fit and active 104-year-old Granny has vegetable glue by the buckets, and is willing to share, since she has always eaten all the veggies served her. The lesson is clearly stated at the end: "She ate all her greens/And I hope you do too, Then...you'll never need any vegetable glue." This very quirky tale is an unusual way to teach the young about eating their vegetables. Some children may find it a fun story, but others could well be frightened by the idea of losing body parts. The rhymes read well aloud, but the whole idea of vegetable glue is misleading and will need explaining. Ordiozola's illustrations, in muted watercolors, playfully illustrate what is happening; but again some children will find images of a rolling head, falling arm, dropped noses, and even a bum on the ground disturbing. Bottom line: know your audience—especially if you are considering reading this to a younger story time audience. It might work better with slightly older children who can appreciate the humor as part of a nutrition unit, or one-to-one at home. The rhyming text is easy to read and could be read by beginning readers. Reviewer: Peg Glisson
