Vegetables provide us with essential vitamins and minerals that make our bodies healthier and stop us from getting sick.

This series takes readers (Ages 8-12) on a historical journey, examining how people coped in the past and how they developed ingenious ways to make life safer and less unpleasant. Each book features full-color cartoon-style illustrations and hilarious speech bubbles to heighten interest, making the series attractive even to reluctant readers.

When someone mentions spinach, broccoli or kale, do you think YUCK? Why do we need these foods and what would the world be like without them? Much better, right? Wrong! Vegetables are also used to make things like dyes, lotions and adhesives. Learn how vegetables are grown and cultivated, and the often inspired innovations made with such humble foodstuffs as the potato and the carrot.
