Grainy, the Whole Grain Bread, Finds a HomeHow many times has your young child come home from school all excited about something the teacher said? (You know-the same thing you have been saying forever and it has been soundly ignored?) How many times have you gone shopping and reached for the soft, white bread, because that is all your family will eat, even though you know there are healthier alternatives? Here is YOUR chance to instill some great knowledge about healthy eating and the kids won’t even realize it!

Meet Grainy, a loaf of whole grain bread. Poor Grainy, he was never chosen to go home with anyone and he didn’t understand why, until he found the perfect answers from other foods and a very smart dietician. Will it give him the knowledge to stand out and be chosen or will others need to be educated before they finally choose him?

Short, illustrated with familiar sights seen in a grocery store, Grainy, the Whole Grain Bread, Finds a Home by Stephanie Trettenero is a delightful and simple tale that teaches about making wise food choices to be healthy and kids will absorb the message without feeling like they are being taught something! Perfect for bedtime reading, classroom show and tell, or even for a teacher’s aid for nutrition! The discussions that can arise from such an easy to understand book are enormous! What better way to instill a lifelong habit of healthy eating, by making it fun, as well as educational! Cute, short and secretly educational, sounds like a win, win read to me!

I received this copy from Stephanie Trettenero in exchange for my honest review.
