About this deal

We borrowed it from the library and will be picking up a copy of our own soon as we can't bear to part with it! I really liked the story, the way the days of the week are worked in, the way Oliver opens up to trying new things to eat, and even the little inside joke at the end between him and his grandparents. This popular picture book tells the story of fussy eater Oliver, who will not eat anything but chips. My 7 year old boy got this book for doing his summer project book review and to learn about green vegetables!

Throughout the story you see the growth in Oliver’s eating habits, when eventually you see Oliver eating carrots, spinach, rhubarb, cabbage and beetroot. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Small taste sessions after each new vegetable are a must and it really encourage children to become curious about new and exciting vegetables. The answer is to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables every day not the same thing over and over again just like Oliver!

Bring in a couple of potted plant to provide live samples of each part ,or take a walk in the classroom garden or schoolyard and identify roots, stems, leaves, and flowers on plants you find outside. This lesson plan provides activity ideas to accompany the delightful children’s book Oliver’s Vegetablesby Vivian French.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Neither my children nor any others I know would have been fooled by Grandad's ploys - they would probably have enjoyed looking for them, but their mouths would still have remained firmly clamped shut in the face of spinach, peas, etc. The botanical definition of a fruit is a structure formed by a pollinated flower that contains the seeds.Slightly on the minus side - speaking only as an adult here - I used to feel slightly riled by the suggestion that a child could be so easily conned into eating vegetables. The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. Over the week, Oliver finds carrots, spinach, rhubarb, cabbage, beetroot and peas, tries them and eats them all up.
