As parents, we try to steer our kids toward healthy choices in eating, while sabotaging ourselves by having sweets around for an occasional treat. Be honest, what would YOU choose or what would you rather choose? Instead of trying to teach a young child what took us until we were adults to believe in, take them to a magical world of fantasy where Mr. Duffle Bag & Tommy's Fruit-Vegetable Adventure can subtly demonstrate the same concept with colorful pictures and charming details.

Fallon Lak brings vegetables and fruits to life, as they tell their own story of healthy benefits. You may find your child suddenly feeling a connection to their new friends and be willing to try them! Instead of saying eat a piece of fruit or have some vegetables, you now have a name or a face to put on each one! Ask what benefits each has, and make a game of healthy eating.

Cute and wonderfully written, make healthy eating a game and a learning experience instead of a battle of wills!

Being highly recommended by a friend I bought this book. Like so many kids Tommy hates fruits and vegetables. I was pleasantly surprised as the colorful vegetables came to life arguing their case. The story and illustrations are wonderful! It's an easy read and a must have if you want your kids to learn more about the benefits of fruit and vegetables. I must say my favorite character is the singing cucumber!

I absolutely love this book! A friend had purchased it, and recommended it to me, so I bought a copy for my son. He loves the story, and enjoys the graphics a lot. I've read it to him every night at bedtime, and he doesn't get tired of it. From a father's standpoint, I love the informative content, and the fact the book makes eating fruits and vegetables the "cool" thing to do! I definitely recommend anyone with young kids to buy this book! Thank you, Fallon Lak! Looking forward to your next publication!

My six years old began eating his fruits and vegetables shortly after we read this book. He hated broccoli and now he is a broccoli lover. He walks around singing like the cucumber :) I couldn't be more pleased! I hope Fallon lak would consider writing more books like this. This book is not only educational, but also funny. I highly recommend it!
