Praise For Rah, Rah, Radishes!

* "Let’s hear it for the veggies! This cheerful chant pairs pithy couplets with the author’s photographs of farmer’s market beauties...A winning recipe blending crispy verse and fresh photography."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "Sayre’s catchy, rhyming verse has an infectious rhythm that begs to be read aloud...With its upbeat, easy-to-digest text and large, clear images, this book will become a go-to choice in spring-themed preschool storytimes and early elementary health or environmental units.”--School Library Journal, starred review

"Makes produce seem downright fun...Families could read this together before or after a trip to the grocery store or farmers’ market; teachers and librarians could feature it on Earth Day or any time resources are needed about food, health, or plants. A good, sturdy, health-conscious choice."--Booklist



"A call to farms...the brilliant colors and inviting textures might just tempt a few picky eaters."--Publishers Weekly

"Use this text with a unit on nutrition or gardening, or before a field trip to the market. It is a great addition to a preschool or primary grade collection."

--Library Media Connection, November/December 2011
