Happy Veggies is a read-aloud that teaches children about the vegetables that grow in gardens. A delightful book for little ones who may think that foods appear by magic in the grocery store. Children will learn to recognize many common veggies, including carrots, corn, radishes, eggplants, etc. The illustrations are colorful and appealing. There is a reverence for nature expressed throughout by the author. A wonderful introduction to nature's cycles and growing seasons.
