Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Who Will Feed Stacey First: Story 1 by Mrs. D. introduces readers to Stacey, a little girl who is hungry and wants to know what is for dinner. Frank the fridge is stuffed with food and can hardly speak. Orange juice thinks it is good for Stacey’s health. Uncle Tom, the red tomato, wants to feed the little girl first. Mr. Sam wants to take his place and peers into the salad bowl. Stacey needs a lot of greens. Fred the lettuce and Kate the cabbage are arguing over who should feed Stacey first. The fight goes on and on and Stacey is still hungry.

I like the thought behind the book, that of introducing children to different types of vegetables and fruits. They get to learn about the types of food they have not had before. The illustrations are adorable and endearing and they breathe life into the vegetable and fruit characters and give a good pace and movement to the story. I like the thought of giving the vegetables and fruits names, thereby giving them their own identity and personality. It is a perfect book for parents, teachers, and educators to help children learn about vegetables and fruits, their colors, and the benefits of eating them. It will also help children make healthy choices.

Colors and stories are always captivating when it comes to children and the author does an excellent job of introducing children to vegetables and fruits through Stacey's story. The exercises and coloring pages at the end of the book make it fun and interactive and can be used in classrooms to keep children engaged. There are instructions for simple cooking so that parents can involve their kids and show them how to make healthy choices when it comes to eating. I cannot wait to read the next story. What about you, children?
