Loreen Leedy has written and illustrated more than thirty books for children, including Look at My Book and The Great Graph Contest, which School Library Journal praised as "exciting and energetic" in a starred review. She lives in central Florida.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 3–Leedy has updated her 1994 book to reflect recommendations offered by the USDA in its 2005 MyPyramid food guide. In the story, a group of elegantly dressed animals arrive for the grand opening of a new restaurant. A tuxedo-clad cat serves as host and introduces the menu as it relates to the vertical stripes on the pyramid. The following spreads offer examples of the food groups represented. Most illustrations closely resemble the originals, with the new pyramid replacing the old in the upper left corner. Slight alterations, such as an emphasis on whole grains, occur in places. The biggest change involves reducing the space devoted to bread and pasta in order to add two pages that encourage kids to exercise at least an hour a day. The muted colors and flat perspective present information competently. Guessing the identity of the creature sneaking food off many pages may intrigue some viewers. Heightened awareness of the need for healthier diets and increased exercise to combat childhood obesity makes this revision particularly timely. Collections with the earlier version definitely will want to substitute this update. A solid purchase for libraries that need the latest guidelines about nutrition and exercise.–Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato
