The vegetables we eat

Gibbons, Gail
Genre: 

Who knew there were so many different kinds of vegetables? Nonfiction pro Gail Gibbons responds to the need for books on good nutrition with this accessible exploration of vegetables. From glossy red peppers to lush, leafy greens to plump orange pumpkins, vegetables are explored in depth in these fascinating illustrations that clearly explain the many vegetable varieties, how they are grown, and why they are so good for us to eat. Using her signature combination of clear and informative wording, with plenty of diagrams and cross sections, Gibbons provides a wealth of information about produce in its many shapes, colors and forms.
