Or that eating carrots helps you see better? Read and find out about the different kinds of food we eat and how to fill up your plate to keep your body healthy! This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 4 to 6. It’s a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children.
