Over a year ago, I was at a Farm to Early Care and Education conference and won the book ‘Mrs. Peanuckle’s Vegetable Alphabet.' I won the book for participating in a cooking contest with the challenge of making a kid-friendly kale hummus. The hummus conquered the judges' taste buds, thus I received the book. Board books and vegetables are both favorites of mine so it was a great prize.
Mrs. Peanuckle’s Vegetable Alphabet introduces young children to their ABCs and the names of vegetables from A to Z (yes, you guessed it…asparagus to zucchini) in a very fun way.
The vibrant illustrations and playful text help parents and teachers teach young children about the alphabet and it has fun facts about vegetables that may even surprise teachers and parents.
Mrs. Peanuckle’s Vegetable Alphabet is the first in a series of board books celebrating the joy of nature at home and in the backyard. I am keeping my eyes open to look for more books in the series and I would suggest you do the same.
