Peer through the magnifying glass with your child to identify the five food groups as they grow, ripen, graze, forage and are harvested with our food friends Penny Pear, Casper Carrot, Annie Apple, Eric Egg, Chester Cheese and Betty Bread.
Use this book to talk with children about where food comes from. For example apples and pears grow on trees, carrots and potatoes grow under-ground, while milk comes from certain animals.
A fun way to explore your world together.

A great blend of text, illustrations and photographs make this is a wonderful non fiction addition to any library for small children
The book would expand the knowledge and vocabulary of 4-5 year olds in an entertaining way. The alliteration of the names of the main characters adds to the book’s overall charm.
The fold out pages provide another point of difference which small children will love.
I can see a visit to the Central Market as a fabulous adjunct to the sharing of this book.
A staple for any kindy.
