I had the pleasure of reviewing “Vegetabibbles” written and illustrated by Kathryn Warren. With impressive rhymes and adorable characters, Warren has created the perfect children’s book about eating vegetables! And if your children are like my four year old, then this may be the catalyst you need for getting them to try new things! Reminiscent of Veggie Tales, you meet Bob the corn on the Cob who “runs around with Broccoli Rob.” CW’s favorite is the russet potato that “fancied a roma tomato” (they met in a stew). At their wedding the black eyed peas get into a little trouble, which makes CW laugh every time. Personally, I liked the zucchini in a bikini!
With colorful illustrations and funny quips, your children will be talking about “Vegetabibbles” all the time. And, maybe that will translate into some more eating at the table! Now instead of asking CW to eat his zucchini, I say, “Eat your vegetabibbles” and he giggles. Next thing I know, the zucchini has disappeared! The best part is that “Vegetabibbles” introduces your children to new kinds of vegetables from edamame to kale, while enhancing their vocabulary with great words like bravado (rhymes with avocado) and merit (you guessed it, to rhyme with carrot)!
Incredibly creative, pick up a copy of “Vegetabibbles” today!
