Book Description

April 15 2007 Reading Rainbow Books
The head waiter—a French cat in tails—the Edible Pyramid restaurant, explains the dishes to his customers, a menagerie of other animals in equally formal attire. Each segment of the pyramid is presented in a two-page spread, defining the food group mentioned and illustrating it with many mouth-watering examples. The recommended number of daily servings is also explained, and after going through the entire menu, the maitre’d helps his diners select a balanced meal. Paintings of the animals and food are done in muted colours. A small pyramid appears in the corner of each illustration, with the block being examined highlighted.

Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3–Leedy has updated her 1994 book to reflect recommendations offered by the USDA in its 2005 MyPyramid food guide. In the story, a group of elegantly dressed animals arrive for the grand opening of a new restaurant. A tuxedo-clad cat serves as host and introduces the menu as it relates to the vertical stripes on the pyramid. The following spreads offer examples of the food groups represented. Most illustrations closely resemble the originals, with the new pyramid replacing the old in the upper left corner. Slight alterations, such as an emphasis on whole grains, occur in places. The biggest change involves reducing the space devoted to bread and pasta in order to add two pages that encourage kids to exercise at least an hour a day. The muted colors and flat perspective present information competently. Guessing the identity of the creature sneaking food off many pages may intrigue some viewers. Heightened awareness of the need for healthier diets and increased exercise to combat childhood obesity makes this revision particularly timely. Collections with the earlier version definitely will want to substitute this update. A solid purchase for libraries that need the latest guidelines about nutrition and exercise.–Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato

From Booklist

First published 13 years ago, Leedy's popular picture-book guide to healthy, delicious eating has been revised with 60 percent more material to include the Department of Agriculture's redesigned food pyramid. Using the original playful format, featuring the smart cat waiter at the Edible Pyramid restaurant that recommends the menu to stylishly dressed animal customers, the bright, clear pictures show breads and grains, pasta in amazing shapes, vegetables and fruits in delicious colors, an abundance of beans, and more. Illustrating the warning about not eating too many sweets and fats is a cute, huge hippo that tries not to take chocolate fudge. The final double-page spread shows the animals having fun exercising. With the topics of diet and exercise now as hot as ever, this is sure to be in demand for classroom discussion. Hazel Rochman

4.0 out of 5 stars A little mistake on one page June 18 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I was surprised that on the, "Dry Beans & Nuts" page of this book, peanuts were listed as a nut. Maybe the author wanted to teach that peanuts can be a source of protein, but I don't like the idea of teaching inaccurate information! These days, people learn that nuts grow on trees, that peanuts are not nuts and they grow under the ground. Has the author read any food allergy articles describing peanuts as a legume related to the pea or bean? Or her editor? Fortunately, peanuts were listed close to the "Dry Beans" list, because other legumes such as peas and lentils were also listed.

I am a first grade teacher in Indiana. I used this book with my students when studying the food pyramid. It was a big success. The illustrations were very bright and kept the students attention! The text idea of the restaurant was fun for the children. Their most favorite part was trying to figure out what the creature was that kept trying to get some food. Look and see if you can guess!!!

It's often hard to convince little ones to make healthy food choices. Encouragement from various sources helps! We like to look for good foods from the pyramid while in the grocery store, bring them home and make meals together.
