Lucky for Jack, the giant he meets at the top of the beanstalk chasing him with a huge fork does not plan to eat him. He is more interested in nutrition than in devouring Jack. Using the USDA's MyPlate nutrition model, the giant makes Jack a scrumptious meal. As he cooks, he teaches Jack about the food groups--grains, proteins, fruits, vegetables, and dairy--and how much of each should be on Jack's plate. Jack also learns that he should get plenty of exercise, which he does as he climbs back down the beanstalk.

About the Author:

Loreen Leedy has written and illustrated more than thirty books for children. Her innovative books include Seeing Symmetry, which The Horn Book called "excellent," and The Great Graph Contest, which School Library Journal called "exciting and energetic" in a starred review. She lives in Florida.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 3-This picture-book reworking of "Jack and the Beanstalk" begins with Jack's mother throwing the beans out the window and the adventurous boy climbing the resultant beanstalk and sneaking into the giant's castle. But instead of becoming the meal, Jack is treated to a lesson in healthy eating by Waldorf the giant, following the USDA guidelines. Each food group is reviewed, with options included that are often overlooked in traditional texts (quinoa and couscous among the grains, scallops and sardines among the proteins). The tale ends with Jack, the giant, and the giant's wife dining together and discussing possible exercises ("we could toss boulders," says the giant). Back matter has information about the MyPlate model, foods to avoid, links to activity pages, and the MyPlate government website. Ths is a great teaching tool; children will enjoy the twist on the familiar fairy tale; the clear, accessible information; and the colorful, cartoonlike digital illustrations.-Jasmine L.
