The original story for this book was conceived and created by my daughter, Joey, when she was 8 years old. Andy, the main character, and my youngest son, is a true character in real life and teaches our family a lot, with much enjoyment and love (mixed with some frustration!).
The Tale of Kale is a based on a real story and a real kid, but is meant to be a colourful and happy way to encourage good eating habits, and develop excitement for trying new things. This children’s picture book is perfect for a good cuddle-up-and-read session, and also a great classroom read or addition to your library. It is my hope that children of all ages will understand and experience food in ways that are fun and relevant to their everyday lives by reading The Tale of Kale.
Life lessons exist every day, if we just slow down enough and take the time to notice. I try to remind myself of this as much as possible, and I am so pleased to share this tale with you, and hope you will share with others.
Here’s to trying new things, in good health, with those we love.
