Rainbow Stew, by Cathryn Falwell. This is a wonderful picture book, encouraging children to eat more vegetables. Colorful collage illustrations add to this warm celebration of good food and cozy family life. Includes a recipe for Rainbow Stew.
The Great Lollipop Caper, by Dan Krall. Picture books must be zany and clever to please the early elementary crowd, and this one fits the bill. Children prefer the sweet taste of Lollipop to the acidic flavor of wrinkly Mr. Caper. So what’s a caper to do? Sneak into the factory and make his own lollipop of course. Perfect for budding foodies!
