Rah, Rah, Radishes

by April Pulley Sayre

Children's librarians (and teachers, parents, grandparents, etc.) the world over try to make vegetables exciting. Sayre has finally found a way to make adults excited to read about vegetables, which in turn might make kids excited to, dare I say it, EAT them. This full-color photographic look at some of the most flavorful morsels found in our gardens is satisfyingly enhanced by a jazzy chant. You cannot help reading this in a cheerleader's voice. Especially nice is the final page which give adults a few suggestions to make vegetables an even more spectacular part of every day.
