What an absolutely wonderful way to discuss fruits and veggies! I loved it. It was colorful, fun, creative and totally educational. I can foresee much more from this beautiful band of goodies.

In a time where so many meals are grabbed on the go and there is a lack of nutritional meals in the home, Teddy Tries a Veggie presents a wonderful message for young children about the benefits of eating fruits and vegetables, and how they work together to fight germs. I was a bit concerned when the story started with the main character, Theodora Rose - Teddy for short, states, “veggies are NOT my thing.” The story quickly redeems itself when Teddy helps her dad in the family garden.

Kind of a corny story but it has a great message. Kids will identify with Teddy (Theodora) a six year old girl who loves fruit but dislikes vegetables. She works in the garden with her father and he plays music to it to help the plants grow. One day, Teddy stumbles upon the Annual Garden Fair where the fruits and vegetables each have their own band. Individually, they are out of tune and not very good. When Teddy convinces them to play together to fight off The Germs, they are in complete harmon ...more

I received a free copy of this book in return for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

I really enjoyed this book. It had a great concept and was turned into a cute story. Teddy is a lot like most kids. She does like her fruits but not the veggies. In this book, she learns why it is important to eat the veggies too, so they can work better together. This book takes the hard concept and makes it so easy for the kids to get. I feel like this book can even help adults want to allow all the ve

REVIEW: TEDDY TRIES A VEGGIE [Smartee Plate Book 1] by Jennifer Glockner

First of a series by registered dietician Jennifer Glockner, TEDDY TRIES A VEGGIE showcases an animate vegetable garden filled with musical vegetables, and a smart almost five-year-old who hates veggies. Throughout the story the vegetables learn to cooperate. Teddy and her dog Charlie join in to repel the pesky Germ Squad, whose members want to gray the garden. Teddy learns to appreciate veggies, as do young readers.
