Eating the Alphabet

Lois Ehlert

Children will revel in a game of naming all the foods they know as each turn of the page reveals a mouth-watering arrangement of foods: Indian corn, jalapeno, jicama, kumquat, kiwifruit and kohlrabi. At the end of the book is a detailed glossary that includes pronunciation with a small watercolor picture to remind the reader of what the plant looks like.
