Two Books in One
Children Will Grow With This Book

This rich alphabet book is actually two books in one — it will not be put aside after a child learns the alphabet. It will provide ongoing learning and pleasure for children (and parents) as they progress from beginning readers into grade-school and beyond.

Part One teaches the ABC’s via twenty-six funny and clever poems about both common and unusual fruits and vegetables. Each poem, written by Steve Charney, a Jim Henson writer, is exuberantly illustrated by Maria Burgaleta Larson.

Part Two by David Goldbeck goes “beyond the ABC’s” — bringing children to a comfortable connection with these foods. This remarkable feat is accomplished through a wonderful mix of jokes, tongue twisters, unusual facts, poems, kid-friendly recipes, shopping tips and the like.

“The ABC’s of Fruits and Vegetables is FANTASTIC!”

More Information

Probably the first book on environmental kitchens: An innovative guide to making kitchens “user friendly,” energy-efficient, safe, and environment-friendly. Every element of the kitchen is discussed, including appliances, materials, fixtures, composting, recycling, low-tox building, and design.

Architects and designers have praised Goldbeck’s book: Fine Homebuilding said “Valuable, perhaps indispensable for the information and perspective it provides that [previously published kitchen] books lacked.”

Lester Walker, architect and author of American Shelter, called The Smart Kitchen a “Beautifully written guide for anyone interested in making kitchens better.” Patricia Poore, editor and publisher of GARBAGE, said “This is the book we would have written.”

Nicholas J. Geragi, Jr., director of education, National Kitchen and Bath Association: “Highly recommended.”
