Breakfast, lunch, dinner--
Every day, we eat and eat.
But I'm still hungry!
do a fine job of introducing that spread's topic (why we have to eat regularly, in this case) but don't excite me much.
Others are truly lovely.
On the Grains spread:
How tall the corn grows!
Reaching up toward the sun,
Talking to scarecrows.
On the Protein foods spread:
I've always wondered:
Do brown chickens lay brown eggs?
My thoughts are scrambled.
The nonfiction sidebars are clear and jam-packed with content, but super easy to read. They're full of child-friendly comparisons and enthusiasm about good health.
The further I read into this book, the more I liked it, actually. Even the more prosaic haiku seemed right by the end. A fun way to introduce to kids the idea of main topics or central ideas. Overall, the book is a great introduction to the idea of nutrition for young readers. And what a fun mentor text! A classroom could put together a book on a general topic, sharing the work of student poets, researchers, illustrators, and writers.
