Another Gail Gibbons book which dives deep into the differences between vegetable plants. It begins with perennials and annuals. She tells us why we should eat vegetables, the ways various vegetables help our health, and where they grow. She even includes how to grow your own vegetable garden. It includes the process of getting vegetables from the farm, to the store, to your house. The illustrations are bright and lively, drawing in readers at any level.

The Vegetables We Eat
by Gail Gibbons

This is a book about vegetables. Gibbons tells how each vegetable is grown. He uses big words, but defines each one.

This is a great book to inform your students on what they are eating. I enjoyed how he put a lot of information into the book without making the reader to confused.

A fun activity would be having the class grow one small vegetable in the classroom.

Also, you could have each student chose a vegetable and draw a diagram explaining how it is grown. ( )
