This February is the time to "Celery-brate Celery!" here at Veggie Buds Club! Our members have received many exclusive hands-on celery activities in the mail (learn more here), and we are excited to share some additional kid-friendly recipes and hands-on activities here on Veggie Buds Blog!
First of all, we like to start the month out with a list of recommended children's books featuring the veggie of the month so we hope you enjoy these great books featuring CELERY! Reading about veggies is a great way to make veggies approachable, fun, and exciting for kids.
Our Veggie Buds Super Club members received the book "Soup Day" by Melissa Iwai this month:
On a cold, snowy day, a young girl and her mother shop to buy ingredients for vegetable soup. At home, they work together―step by step―to prepare the meal. While the soup is cooking, they spend the time playing games and reading. Before long, Daddy's home and the family sits down to enjoy a home made dinner. This book celebrates the importance of making a nutritious meal and sharing in the process.
Children's Books Featuring Celery
Celery, Celery, it's so Yummy
Each month, Ludavia Harvey, creator of The Preschool Workshop, develops a simple children's song for Veggie Buds Club that celebrates the veggie of the month. This is another way to make veggies fun for kids!
