The Yummy Alphabet Book: Herbs, Spices, and Other Natural Flavors
by Jerry Pallotta (author) and Leslie Evans (illustrator)
32-page nonfiction alphabet book
First of all, I think Jerry Pallotta wins the prize for writing the most alphabet books. I can’t figure out what subject he hasn’t turned into an alphabet book. This one focuses on things that add flavors to food. I’m just not sure who the audience is – kids who are learning the alphabet or parents interested in food? The choices and facts are interesting and, as in all of this series, the illustrations are gorgeous. Actually, I think the illustrations are what makes this book stand out. So, if you want to know a bit more about lavender, maple syrup, and nutmeg this is a book for you.
Some of the items, such as Zater, will be unfamiliar to many people.
What’s your favorite “go to” herb or spice?
