Here is a fun little ditty to encourage students to eat vegetables. Pre-service teachers know that music always makes a topic more fun, and many classrooms are equipped to show short videos.

Happy Reading about Vegetables, Kathy

This clever book reads like a middle-grade story, which it is, but it is also a how-to manual.
