Helping children learn about healthy foods—as well as their ABCs—this bilingual picture book in English and Spanish features colorful photographs of engaging faces made from fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy, and soy products. A sample sketch with instructions, followed by additional suggested activities, helps children create their own food faces and connect with peers and teachers. An informative section for parents highlights the nutritional value of 70 foods illustrated in the book.

Home School Book Review, October 3, 2012 (view all comments by Home School Book Review)
Do you know what a berenjena is? Would you be willing to eat a zarzamora? Youngsters can traipse through the alphabet, learning about different fruits, vegetables, grains, and other healthy foods, while reinforcing their ABCs, in both English and Spanish. The Spanish name for the book is Comida sana de la A a la Z. Colorful illustrations of charming faces constructed by famous food-photographer Renee Comet out of the various foodstuffs will encourage children to return to the book over and over. By the way, zarzamora is Spanish for blackberry, and berenjena is Spanish for eggplant. Have you ever tried eggplant? What about a quince (membrillo)?

In addition to the text of the book where the foods are pictured alphabetically and identified by both English and Spanish names, readers are given instructions on how to make their own healthy food face and provided with other healthy food projects to do which involve art, language, science, and math skills. There are also seven pages of “Did You Know…?” facts that will highlight the nutritional value of seventy of the foods pictured throughout the book for parents to share with their children. Healthy Foods from A to Z will be beneficial for all youngsters but can be especially helpful for bilingual families and those wishing to expose students to the Spanish language (or even vice versa). Did you know that strawberries are a member of the rose family? I really like strawberries. I also like this book.
