Readers’ Favorite: What am I? Vegetables

Another book review! My picture book, What am I? Vegetables was reviewed by Readers’ Favorite, which gave the book 5 stars. Here’s the review:

What Am I? Vegetables by John Benzee is an educational and informative book for young readers as they get introduced to vegetables in a fun and interactive way. The riddles about the various vegetables, using simple descriptions and rhyming patterns, make it a fun read and children will have a good time trying to find the answers and solve the riddles. Whether it is a vegetable grown at home, seen in the grocery store, or served on your plate, children will have a fun and engaging time learning new things about the vegetables they come across or vegetables they do not know about. ‘I’m eaten raw, With a taste that’s crisp and sweet, Sometimes with a little, spicy heat. What am I?’ Let us find out more about vegetables from this book.

There are a lot of books for children written on vegetables, but what sets this book apart from the rest of them is the way the author tackles the topic. The idea of introducing veggies in a riddle form is fresh and unique, plus it makes the concept more attractive and appealing to young readers to learn and understand. The author’s illustrations are colorful and bright, and they make the book even more charming to readers. This book is a good way for children to learn about vegetables and it can be used in classrooms to teach children about vegetables, their characteristics, and colors. It is a good book to have in one’s personal collection, especially if there are school-going children in the home.
