The art is what makes this book a stand-out, but I was let down by the text. While the tone of the art is whimsical, the text is dry and doesn't feel cohesive. Concepts are cursorily explained using sophisticated vocabulary that will be over the heads of younger children. There is a glossary, but it feels especially off-the-mark, as the definitions seem more geared to an audience of adults than of kids.I do, however, think there's a place for this book. You could page through it with a young chi [...]
So this was a pretty good book! It covers portion control as well as teaching about the different food groups. My one little gripe is that the font is really small and hard to read. Kids will be better off just learning to identify the foods on sight than trying to read their names. When it gets down to the proteins, they tend to be shown in their, er, processed forms, so some explaining might still need to be done there. I keep thinking of the Jamie Oliver Food Revolution episode where the kids [...]
This is a cute book that aims to educate children — and parents — about healthy eating. There is a food parade, which goes through all of the food groups, telling why each is important and showing many examples of each type of food. My 8-year-old had some difficulty with more complex words, like carbohydrates and antioxidants, but I was happy to help him with those. Those, and other similar food-related words, are defined in a glossary at the back of the book. There’s also a note for paren [...]
The book pictures items from the five food groups as characters who parade past the reader. Food facts are scattered throughout the illustrations. A chart in the back shows proportions of vegetables, grains, dairy, protein and fruits necessary for a child’s daily diet.Although vegetables are the largest group in the chart, grains parade first in the illustrations. A small area is included for sweets, although they don’t qualify as nutritious. On some pages the food items are identified and o [...]
The acrylic paint, collage, and Adobe Photoshop illustrations are the stars here as this picture book provides basic information about the five food groups. The illustrations show all sorts of yummy foods that belong in those respective food groups, including a pita pocket, a croissant, and macaroni for grains, for instance, and whole milk, cream, yogurt, and many kinds of cheeses for dairy. The text explains how each food group contributes to a healthy body, and back matter discusses the import [...]
Finally! a book about nutrition that's simple enough and entertaining enough to use with a group of very young children. I look forward to using it for programming and imagine us conducting a stick puppet food parade with our favorite healthy foods.
This colorful, pretty book walks kids through the food groups included in the food pyramid. The text is simple and straightforward, nearly bland. The pictures are darling and are sure to generate meaningful conversations about healthy eating. Recommended for preschool and kindergarten.
The artwork is truly remarkable, but the presentation of the information could be improved.
Preschool storytime appropriate
Too didactic for using in a library program, IMO, but would be fun for a classroom for sure. Also just a nice book to look at.
Because she liked the pictures, my 3 year old did not want this book to go back to the library. Fun book on the food pyramid.
I liked that my girls took a lot from this one and that the illustrations were different.
A whimsically illustrated introduction to basics of good nutrition.
