About the Author:

Gail Gibbons has published close to fifty distinguished nonfiction titles with Holiday House. According to "The Washington Post", "Gail Gibbons has taught more preschoolers and early readers about the world than any other children's writer-illustrator." She lives in Vermont. Her website is www.gailgibbons.com

From Booklist:

With so much national concern about child obesity and nutrition, this accessible, inviting introduction to vegetables, aimed at the picture-book crowd, is certainly timely. Following the tried-and-true formula found in her previous titles, Gibbons matches concise, simple text with bright, cheerful watercolor-and-ink artwork, and she adds more information in text boxes placed within the pictures. The facts range from the most basic ("It is good for us to eat vegetables. They are nutritious.") to the more advanced, such as a definition of hydroponics. Gibbons' survey is visually inclusive; the pictures show families of all shades enjoying vegetables in different ways. And the scenes in the garden, and then on the farm and at the supermarket, show both small- and large-scale production. A final page adds more interesting veggie trivia. For complementary titles about vegetables and how they're grown, pair this with George Ancona's Harvest (2001) and Deborah Kogan Ray's Lily's Garden (2002), as well as the books featured in "From Seed to Harvest," in the November 2006 issue of Book Links magazine. Engberg, Gillian
