Author Biography

Prior to writing, “Vegetable Kids in the Garden,” while in graduate school, I developed the Vegetable Personality Styles and registered the copyright. I researched and experienced many personality and trait assessments for myself and while counseling others. At the same time I realized how important it is to enjoy plenty of fresh vegetables and encouraged clients to have a healthy lifestyle while improving my own. I gave presentations to adults and children on the Vegetable Personality Styles and enjoyed all of the fun and enthusiasm around vegetables and the personality styles based on the colors and the way the four vegetables grow. I decided to write a children’s book about gardening, vegetables, and the four personality styles. Children love the story and have fun being a vegetable. I am thrilled that children are excited about digging in the garden, planting, and eating vegetables. I appreciate comments and questions.

Fruits and vegetables are important for the health and well-being of the body, especially for children as they are growing. It's a daily challenge to make children eat what’s good for them on a regular basis. Well, eating vegetables just got more fun in Nancy J. Miller’s colorfully illustrated children’s book, Vegetable Kids In The Garden. With beautiful drawings by Russel Wayne, Nancy J. Miller provides a way to stimulate children's interest in learning about vegetables. Vegetable Kids In The Garden offers a world behind the story of vegetables - from planting and learning the terms and meanings of words associated with vegetables to understanding the importance of each vegetable. Follow friends Lucas, Emma, and twins, Zoe and Dylan, as they go on an adventure in Nona’s backyard into the world of vegetables.

I loved that not only was Vegetable Kids In The Garden fun but also excitingly educational. In this book, children will acquire a robust learning experience about vegetables, from vegetable activities, learning interesting facts, finding out about the different types of vegetables, and a special message to parents. What was a bonus feature to me was to discover that there were Vegetable Cards available for purchase. Children can take these cards to the grocery store and help to create a meal using different colors of vegetables. Their involvement with the meal can pique their interest in eating their vegetables. If you have a finicky or picky eater that won't eat their vegetables, try using the principles in Vegetable Kids In The Garden by Nancy J. Miller.
