Rah, Rah, Radishes!: A Vegetable Chant

April Pulley Sayre. S&S/Beach Lane, $14.99 (32p) ISBN 978-1-4424-2141-7
Farmers' market–fresh vegetables (blemishes and all) are the subject of this vividly photographed book—think of it as a call to farms. Each page features a different grouping of veggies: leafy bok choy pairs with brussels sprouts still on the stalks; habanero, jalapeño, and serrano peppers form a vibrant array of greens, reds, and oranges; and pumpkins nestle alongside eggplants. Sayre's alliterative phrases don't offer much in the way of description ("Root for rutabagas./ Bounce for beets!/ Pile up parsnips./ Turnip treats!")—they more resemble a cheerleader's cheer or a playground rhyming game—but the brilliant colors and inviting textures might just tempt a few picky eaters. Ages 3–7. (June)
