Green food keeps illnesses at bay, and bring balance to our body. Includes seaweed, fruit and vegetables.

The Japanese style illustrations are so vivid and attractive, attracting young and old readers alike! Love that the information presented is clear and concise, piquing our interest. I really appreciate the simplicity of the text throughout the books, plus the option of delving deeper for older kids, giving this bookset awesome mileage over a range of ages. This to me, makes this a clear winner and a must-have in our bookstore.

Just from Book 1 of the set, there are already many treasures!

  • Causing kids to think about the origin of food. Pg 4 shows a meal of rice, miso soup, salmon with tomatoes, green veggie, and sausages. Then it breaks down the ingredients in pictorial form, making it really easy to understand!
  • Showing appropriate portions of food using our palms, in Pg 12.
  • Teach the right way to use chopsticks, in Pg 22.
  • Learning to be grateful for the hard work of many others who help provide our food, like those who raise pigs, fruit and vegetable farmers, delivery men, those who create sauces, and those who prepare the food for us, in Pg 24-27

Tons more fun facts to discover in the rest of the books.

If this set seems interesting, I'm sure you'd love 我喜欢的身体绘本 My Favorite Body bookset - another Japanese bookset which is all about healthy life habits!

Be sure to check out other titles in the Daily Life Collection! Mandarin is best learnt when directly relevant to our daily life.

Educational, Easy to Understand

I bought this series for my K level kid to educate her on food types and categories, as well as their impact on our health and nutrition. I love that the book is factual but not intimidating. She is now able to articulate why some foods sustain our health, and why some foods should be taken sparingly. Definitely an effective educational tool, especially for K level and up, who want more autonomy in their food choices. This series does help guide and remind them to make sensible food choices.

Great set for learning about different food categories

This is a very informative Mandarin books set about different types of food and healthy eating. Illustrations are cute and simple enough for young kids to learn the interesting food facts. We would recommend this set for early introduction to Science and food knowledge in a fun way =)

Dear Sarunyu, thank you for taking the time to leave a review and recommend this lovely set of books! We love the illustrations so much too (:
