Having a problem getting your child to eat veggies? This picture book for youngsters three years of age and older may be the answer to making enjoying a daily helping of carrots, peas or beans a non-stress situation.

Page upon page of full color illustrations feature a variety of common vegetables and the accompanying, rhyming text offers the vegetable chant that may increase your little one's enthusiasm for trying broccoli, cauliflower or even some zucchini.

'Onion. Scallion. Leek and shallot. Grab that garlic. Please your palate! Root for rutabagas. Bounce for beets! Pile up parsnips. Turnip treats!'

Ok! So this isn't great poetry or especially clever verse, but if it makes a helping of the asparagus, peas or potatoes go down without a hassle, then I say, 'Hooray for Rah, Rah, Radishes!'
