  • I recently received a copy of Herbert Peabody and his Extraordinary Vegetable Patch from Australia author Bianca C Ross. A farmer herself who had noticed a disconnect between kids and food and decided to do something about it! I recently blogged about the reasons why I love our family veggie patch and this book ties in perfectly with that message. Herbert Peabody is a farmer who grows fruit and vegetables in his big, big vegetable patch at Mulberry Tree Farm. When his niece Clementine and nephew Digby come to stay for the school holidays, Herbie can’t understand why they know so little about vegetables. But there’s a bigger problem: Theo Knead-a-lot’s famous bakery is under threat and he needs Herbie’s help. Can Herbie teach Clementine and Digby about the importance of vegetables? And with some hard work and a little bit of magic, can they make something extraordinary happen? This book is recommended for kids aged 4 and up, but my daughter is only 3 and has enjoyed reading snippets of this book each night before bed. Winnie loves her veggie patch here at our house, so there is a real connection between what we read and what we have…
