Peculiar Produce presents opportunities to learn about uncommon foods and discover the names of children from different cultures. With its alliterative text and aspirational vocabulary, the book encourages discussion around variety in fruits and vegetables while accentuating their differences and imperfections. An essential reading tool from early childcare through elementary school, the direct and indirect messages of diversity through the character names and physical descriptions tied to positive new adjectives, is designed to engage readers of all ages. Exploring the characters, their shapes, and their actions will open conversations around using affirming words, uplifting actions towards others, body positivity, and encouraging healthy eating. From Ashanti the active Asparagus to Izumi the interesting Ice Cream Bean and Udo the uncommon Ulu, meet the simple and silly characters and start talking about all that is peculiar. We hope you enjoy this book as much as we do! Thank you.
