It is not true that toddlers don't like vegetables at least, it won't be true after leafing through this delectable board book. Faster than the pages are turned, youngsters will gobble their celery and carrots!

"Vegetables" By Sara Anderson is a nice board book featuring bold illustrations of vegetables labeled with its corresponding name. The vegetables are lightly detailed giving the illustrations a true to life feeling.

This is a simple vocabulary building book that is appropriate for babies through preschool. However, though the vegetables are bright, the background is various darkly tinted bold colors making the overall appearance dull. It did not capture the interest of my baby (or myself). A good
Along with the companion book, Fruit, these are my twin toddlers favorite books right now and I don't mind reading them over and over. It's not often you find a board book that has been laid out so thoughtfully and artistically. I would happily frame the pictures and hang them on my walls if I could find the prints. The color schemes, texture, shading, and details of each illustration make them very artistic compositions. I think you can learn a lot about art by studying the illustrations.

I love this book. The illustrations are in nice bold colors and it covers both really common vegetables (carrots, corn, potato) and some that small children are less likely to have tried (rhubarb, yam). The text is mostly just the names of the vegetables, with a few extra words added in to keep it rhyming.

I checked it out because we bought a farm share this summer to get our family eating a wider variety of vegetables. I wanted the book to reinforce the names of some of the different foods Gavin

Beautiful illustrations. I would recommend this for people who don't like horrible cartoony or pastel pictures in children's books.
Fabulous, bold, contrasting colors make this a great concept book for kids.
