Editorial Reviews

This is a book every parent should read to their children. Especially if they are having trouble getting them to eat their vegetables. Through the tale of SugarPaw, who doesn’t eat vegetables we learn about the importance of vegetables. Who knows you just might learn to like your vegetables.

This is a great way to introduce children to vegetables. Each vegetable can help our bodies every day. I knew that carrots help your eyes, but I didn't know about the other uses for the other vegetables. As the book went on I liked that they used lettuce to wrap an ankle and lemon to get rid of mosquitoes. At the end of the book the author talks about the different vegetables that were in the book and their uses. These are great for anyone to know! Next time I get a sore throat, I will be trying some cabbage! ~Victoria Brinius (DealSharingAunt blogger)

A great book to add to my second-grade classroom library. SugarPaw does not like eating vegetables, but when he lets a friend’s parrot out of its cage he needs to find a way to urge the bird back. It seems as though only “whistle beans” will do the trick. While on the adventure to find Cesar, the parrot, SugarPaw learns how different vegetables help keep his body healthy. Following the story are fun facts about the ten vegetables use throughout the book. It would be fun to have students try the different vegetables as part of an interactive read aloud in any elementary classroom. ~'s review
