The team behind I’m Adopted and Shades of People present candid photographs of children preparing and enjoying food, as well as demonstrating their strength and energy. In a garden, a girl holds up a carrot that matches her ginger hair (“I picked a carrot”); elsewhere, a boy eats broccoli (“Rice and beans and broccoli!). Tips for parents (“Buy pastas that are high in protein, legumes, and multigrains”) appear at the bottom of each spread. The children’s expressions of pride and joy may inspire some picky readers to eat their veggies. Ages 3–6. (Mar.)
