We Like to Help Cook
Illustrations by Diane Iverson
This book supports obesity prevention which has become a national priority in the U.S.
All the young children in this brightly colored-picture book are helping adults to prepare healthy and delicious foods — all in accordance with the Healthy Diet Guidelines illustrated by the USDA Food Pyramid. See www.mypyramid.gov
Simple text, including some rhymes, make the book easy to read, and will appeal to both kids and parents. We Like to Help Cook shows a multi-cultural mix of kids, as well as a few handicapped children in the activities and choices. Children help themselves or assist the adults by performing many age-related tasks, like pouring, shaking, washing, mashing and mixing — actions that most young children love to do.
