Book Review: THE SUPER SPROWTZ: I AM BRIAN BROCCOLI AND I AM SUPER STRONG
Meet the Super Sprowtz! from Super Sprowtz on Vimeo.
Super Sprowtz gives moms an easy and effective way to teach their kids to enjoy eating vegetables. Finally, there is a solution for the picky eater who won't eat broccoli or carrots or spinach -- Super Sprowtz! And it doesn't involve hiding fresh veggies in other foods to trick kids into eating them. I founded this company - with these fun and engaging veggie superhero characters - because I passionately believe moms need better tools to help their young children build honest and healthy relationships with healthy food. My full bio is online, but a quick overview -- my background includes: fitness instructor, organic restaurateur in New York City (I own 2 organic restaurants with my twin sister), film and TV producer for 10 years, and lifelong food enthusiast.
My Take on the Book
This delightful book introduces the reader to vegetables as the main characters. The first page of the book gives the reader a short file of information about Brian Broccoli and the mission he and his vegetable comrades must accomplish.. Brian Broccoli must stop Greasy Grease Cart from destroying the fresh fruits and vegetables at the farmers' market.
As the story progresses, you meet not only Brian Broccoli , but also Oliver Onion, Grete Garlic, and Colby Carrot. They are living on a rooftop greenhouse and have befriended a little girl named Rayne who takes care of the greenhouse and the plants who live there.
Colby Carrot spies the Greasy Grease Cart heading towards the farmers' market with the intent of destroying the vegetables and fruits .
The vegetable friends are mobilized and speed in Suzy Sweetpea's peapod-cycle to intercept and destroy the cart.
The story of course has a happy ending.Our authors are educating the readers into seeing that fresh fruits and vegetables are healthier eating alternatives to greasy foods.
The authors include information about the value of ten fruits and vegetables in the glossary and include a delicious vegetable side dish that you and your child can prepare together.
I can see a family enjoying the book and then purchasing various fruits and vegetables for tasting and cooking together.
You can make a difference in what your child eats and this book is a good beginning to a healthier YOU.
