Vegetable Soup, The Nutritional ABC’s & The Fruit Bowl, A Contest Among the Fruit form the two halves of a unique flip-flop book on nutrition for young children. Through beautiful 4-color illustrations and rhyming verse, the text introduces children to the connection between what they eat and how they look, feel, and perform. In addition to giving information about health benefits, uses and growth patterns of fruits and vegetables, the book also provides opportunities to develop math and reading readiness skills as the child becomes an active participant in the reading process. This is explained in detail in the “To the Reader” page found between the two sides. Vegetable Soup & The Fruit Bowl has 64 pages in an 8 1/2″ x 11″ format. Its heavy-duty, UV-coated soft covers and sewn and glued binding will stand the test of time as parents and teachers educate children about the importance of fruits and vegetables to our health and well being.
