Book Review: Rah, Rah, Radishes! by April Pulley Sayre


Rah, Rah, Radishes! A Vegetable Chant by April Pulley Sayre

Get into the summer veggie crunching mood with this book that celebrates vegetables of all sorts! 

Rah, rah, radishes! Red and white.

Carrots are calling.  Take a bite.

Oh boy, bok choy! Brussels sprout.

Broccoli.  Cauliflower.  Shout it out!

With a rhythm that is great fun and contagious, this book will have even the most dubious children cheering for vegetables too.  

Sayre pairs her rhymes with bright photographs of vegetables from farmer’s markets.  The freshness is apparent as is the abundance.  It’s an ideal setting for celebrating farming and food.  Her photographs are as crisp as the pea pods and as colorful as the peppers. 

A great introduction to trying new foods or visiting a farmer’s market, this book is a celebration of good eats.  Yum!  Appropriate for ages 2-4.
