Come take a walk down the produce aisle with photographer and storyteller Heather Sisto. Her creative approach to the classic ABCs will have your child asking for a second helping of veggies while learning new vocabulary and enjoying the playful rhymes. This book is a companion to "F is for Fruit" by the same author-illustrator. Fun for all ages!
This creative approach to the classic ABCs teaches literacy and nutrition by introducing children, parents and teachers to common and exotic vegetables from around the world as if they were taking a journey down a produce aisle. The playful rhymes make it an excellent read-aloud, or it can be used a letter at a time by emerging readers. The full-color photographs of each vegetable are artistic and appealing, and the author-illustrator ingeniously cut each vegetable to form each letter of the alphabet as well. Educational and fun for all ages!
