In this lovely children’s story, Alex and Morgan are given the task of choosing a different vegetable from the greengrocer shop every day after school to eat with their tea. Alex and Morgan’s Mum says they must choose a different vegetable each day. And what fun they have picking! This story has been written for young children (aged 3-5 years), and has been designed to encourage children to eat a variety of vegetables, particularly those that may be unfamiliar to them.
The book includes an introduction to sensory learning activities using celeriac in order to increase the impact of the storybook on children’s willingness to taste and try this novel vegetable. There is also a craft idea and two recipes relating to celeriac to further support and reinforce the impact of the book.
The book comes with five beautiful vegetable finger puppet friends that children will recognise from the story: the sleek, chic, unique leek; the bish, bash, bosh, not posh squash; the lean, mean, green runner bean; the root-toot cute beetroot, and of course; the knobbly, wobbly, bobbly celeriac. Presented together in a sturdy carry case these make fabulous take home bags for parent engagement with your healthy eating topic work.
