This time, the spotlight’s on seeds…the combination of short, pithy verse and artfully displayed food provides an excellent aid for classroom or family learning. To that end, Sayre (a veteran of school visits) provides an afterword that answers questions about the science and nutrition of seeds, nut allergies, cultural connections through food, and more.

“This companion book to Rah, Rah, Radishes! (2011) and Go, Go, Grapes! (2012) looks at edible seeds and finds lots to love about them. Seeds might not sound so tasty, but the nuts, beans, grains, and spices shown in Sayre’s excellent color photos look irresistible. Arranged in bins, bags, bowls, and jars, the colorful, multitextured varieties become a feast for the eye, while the text chants an accompanying cheer that satisfies the ears with its rhythm and rhyme. the beautifully composed photos often create their own rhythms through repetition of form and color. An appended three-page section offers a good deal of information on the edible seeds shown and refers readers to the author’s website for a related bibliography. Fun for reading aloud, this handsome book is also a useful addition to curriculum units on seeds or nutrition.”

About The Author

“Sayre builds on the success of Rah, Rah, Radishes! (2011) and Go, Go, Grapes! (2012, both S & S) with this cheerful foray into edible seeds. The zesty, rhyming text is paired with the author’s appealing farmers’ market photographs. Her creative layouts make even a pile of beans worth examining and admiring. The book design and colorful pages are a perfect complement to the photos, tying the package into a cohesive whole. This is an opportunity to introduce youngsters to foods they may not be familiar with, such as butternuts and quinoa, while celebrating the everyday, such as peanuts and corn. In the informative back matter, kids can learn the nitty gritty of nuts, grains, beans, and spices and get the answer to the burning question, “Why don’t seeds we eat grow inside our stomachs?” The book is excellent storytime fun and perfect for any preschool or early elementary curriculum, providing a jumping-off point for discussions of food, farming, culture, and more. A rollicking, frolicking good time.”
