Fresh Delicious by Irene Latham illustrated by Mique Moriuchi

I love going to the farmer's market located in Ocala, Fl. There is pretty much everything you can think of from fresh milk to baked goods.
Arts and crafts, eggs, vegetables and fresh seafood from the Atlantic coast! Who doesn't love going to the Farmers' Market?
Fresh Delicious reminds me of our farmers market and all the fun, good things to see and do.
I never thought of cucumbers as submarines before!

I love strawberries. Here is a little poem about them:

Strawberry Jamboree

So many strawberries
costumed in red-
they carry green parasols
to shade their heads.
Tasteless, or tasteful?
You decide.
They wear their seeds
on the outside.
 (see recipe at end of book for strawberry ice cream)

There are puzzles to solve too! Summer Squash as Punctuation anyone?
This book will get the imagination going. See what you can find at your Farmers' Market and come up with your own poems and quizzes.

Includes kid friendly recipes. While at the market, pickup some fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs and milk and then enjoy making some good wholesome food.
