We created this garden vegetable rhyme to help kids on the road to developing a taste for vegetables. It doesn't always come natural when kids have no idea what a vegetable is or where it comes from.
Establishing communication through rhyme is a way to raise the affinity and reality of vegetables as something fun and good to eat.
Home vegetable gardens and growing vegetables is an experience every child should be exposed to at a young age. As a parent or grandparent, I would devote some time to a vegetable garden for kids.
In Michigan, garden vegetables are mostly relegated to a summer vegetable garden. The season does not include the winter, spring and fall months for growing. Spring is however, the time for planting. Seeds can be started indoors for school projects and then transplanted outdoors into a community garden that can be overseen by a 4-H or garden club. You can also take them home and start a nice vegetable garden of your own.
Autumn is the time for harvesting many varieties of garden vegetables for eating and preserving. Again, school projects and field trips surrounding these activities start to give children solid grounding on from where their food is derived and all the work and care that goes into producing their french fries. Growing and eating raw vegetables straight out of the garden is in itself a great educational opportunity for building skills and responsibility. Kids love to help and is a source of pride and accomplishment.
This book is for young kids to develop the concept of helping in the garden. There are many simple tasks they can hone into skills for the future.
We are sorry to say, but Wake Helps is currently unavailable. We hope to have it retrieved from a previous book publishing platform we are no longer using and then have it here for a free download in our free pdf books section. We will then also make it available in paperback on Amazon. In the meantime, another illustration from the book is included below.
