Chlory the Green Pig Makes Sugar (Food for Thought Books Volume 1) by Geoffrey Wilhite is an educational and informative book that teaches children about photosynthesis in a fun and interactive way. A sleepy sunflower is happy when she feels the warm sun. It helps her produce her own food during a process called photosynthesis. There is a place called Chloroplast in her green leaves where little green pigs named Chlorophyll live. They are busy making sugar for the sunflower all day long. Chlory is the famous chef making sugar in Leaf Town and she is assisted by her friends Phloem and Xylem, two long skinny tubes.

The author makes the concept of photosynthesis interesting and children will love science once they finish reading the book. The illustrations are delightful and bright and they make learning the concept easy and fun. The glossary at the end of the story is helpful and the author’s approach to the topic is simple yet packed with information. It is a good storybook for tutors and educators to use in classrooms to teach their students about photosynthesis in a fun and interactive way so that children will not find it boring and difficult. Books like this are interesting especially when dealing with educational topics which are conveyed with the help of characters and stories. I recommend this book to all parents, tutors, and educators to help children understand the concept of photosynthesis in a manner that is interesting and easy. I cannot wait to read more from the Food for Thought book series.
