Today we attended the launch party for this book:
Bow Wow Wow! Green Beans Now?,
a picture book by Jessica Dimuzio. It's the true story of two dogs who
love green beans, and it discusses the organic gardening that produces
those beans (among other vegetables). Appropriately enough, the launch
party was held at Really Cooking with Robin,
a caterer, cooking school, and food and kitchenware store focusing on
healthy foods. (Their healthy chocolate mousse was divine.)
author is a friend and critique partner of mine, and I've gotten to see
her grow from an unpublished writer to the owner of her own business, Nature Tales and Trails, which includes two picture books, school visits, and nature education programs.
healthy food fun is important, and this book delivers with dog
pictures, jokes, and sense-rich descriptions of the food woven in among
practical information about gardening.
