K-Gr 2–There is a rebellion brewing in the refrigerator. All of the vegetables are upset that children run and scream from fear when they see vegetables on their plates. Vegetables are constantly left behind on the kids' unfinished plates, much to their disappointment. Enough is enough! They want to be loved just as much as desserts. While some of the veggies lead the charge, others are considering going on vacation to avoid the rebellion. But just as they are tiring from the rebellion, the refrigerator is opened and a woman and child are visible. A childlike voice is heard requesting vegetables for the meal. This hilarious text is filled with colorful characters that just want to be appreciated. The art is reminiscent of Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Jen Corace’s Little Pea. These veggies have big personalities that will remind readers of Drew Daywalt’s The Day the Crayons Quit. This is a great way to expose children to new types of greens, while making them laugh in the process.
VERDICT Definitely a text that will be enjoyed by older children with some reading proficiency; this would also make for a fun read-aloud.
