Summary

Sylvia Spivens always says no to spinach. But one day Sylvia's teacher gives her a packet of spinach seeds to plant for the school garden. Overcoming her initial reluctance and giving the seeds a little love and patience, Sylvia discovers the joy of growing food and the pleasure of tasting something new.

Parents will identify with the challenge of feeding healthy food to a picky eater during family dinner. Educators will understand the magic and rewards of school gardens. Best of all, young readers will celebrate Sylvia's strong will, curiosity, and, maybe, her love of spinach.

Katherine Pryor made her picture book debut with Sylvia's Spinach, which has been widely used for nutrition education and school garden curriculum. Anna Raff's many children's books include "World Rat Day" by Children s Poet Laureate, J. Patrick Lewis. Katherine and Anna teamed up for their second book together, Zora's Zucchini, published in 2015. Sylvia's Spinach was named among "15 Books for Future Foodies" by Food Tank and is a Whole Kids Foundation Book Club selection for September 2016.
