End of the Rainbow Fruit SaladAbout the Books

As the titles suggest, End of the Rainbow Fruit Salad and Garden Safari Vegetable Soup introduce children to a cornucopia of fruits and vegetables. Throughout the stories, children gather and count a colorful variety of ingredients as they prepare delicious recipes to share with friends and family. Each book ends with a full recipe which includes substitution tips and serving suggestions.

Kitchen Club Kids books are happy, read-out-loud rhyming adventures designed for young children. These stories present the numbers one to ten, colors, a variety of fruits and vegetables, and cooking terms. The characters are racially diverse, and the concepts of team work and sharing are prominent. The illustrations are colorful and bright, and the characters and objects pop softly off the pages with the illustrator's use of shading.
