How To Eat Your ABC's introduces each letter of the alphabet along with a tasty food to eat. Narrated by BuzzBee, a happy, friendly bee that is a master of rhyming, each plant has a poem that goes along with it.
I enjoyed that every food was a plant that you could grow or go and find out in nature. Not all of the plants are common either, so this would be a great way to introduce new foods into your child's diet. For example, 'I' is for Indian Cress and 'U' is for Ugli fruit. I was really wondering what would happen with the letter 'X,' it is done pretty well, but I will leave that for a surprise. My son is a little young for trying all of the foods, but he did enjoy me reading the rhymes as well as the big, bright and simple pictures. It would be an awesome activity to taste all of the foods along with the book! Each poem is long enough that each letter could be done separately on different days. Also, the poems talk not only about the letter of the alphabet, but inform you about the plant itself. Buzzbee is a great choice of narrator since bees are needed to pollinate many of the plants that are talked about; another teaching point that can be integrated into the book.
