March is National Nutrition Month. Let’s Celebrate the Green Bean with “How Martha Saved Her Parents from Green Beans,” By David LaRochelle; illustrated by Mark Fearing.
It’s hard to be thinking about green beans in the midst of Covid-19 panic; not unless you’re scouring the shelves for them, and they’re no where to be found because they’ve been eaten up…. maybe even by rebellious Martha and her kidnapped parents!!!
Hey, it’s National Nutrition Month, so I thought I would close the month out with a salute to the….green bean. Yum.
Young readers will enjoy this read aloud of the revolt of the ultimate green veggie.
