Edible Colors: 01/06/19

Edible Colors

After stumbling upon a copy of Edible Numbers, I decided wanted to read the companion piece, Edible Colors by Jennifer Vogel Bass.

Children's books about colorful fruits and vegetables are pretty common; do a search for "eat a rainbow" at any online book catalog and you'll see about a dozen different options. What made me want to read this particular book was the beautiful photography and careful labeling off all the varieties.

The photography is just as lovely as it is in Edible Colors. The labeling and choice of fruit and vegetable is just as interesting. But the choice to start with a typical orange carrot to lead off on all the different, unexpected colors fruit and vegetables leave a natural hole in the edible rainbow.

The book goes from a vegetable can be this color but it can also be this unexpected color. It's a natural progression from color to veg to color. But it doesn't, and should frankly, swing back to orange.

Four stars
