Children's Book Review: Eat Your Words: Numbers & Letters


A few days ago, Calee from Xist Publishing, contacted me to ask if I wanted to review one of their books. As a book worm I couldn't say no! We chatted a little bit and she found the perfect book for us to review. But, before I talk about this great book, let me introduce you to Xist Publishing!

"Xist Publishing creates books for the touchscreen generation and is committed to helping parents foster a lifetime love of reading in their children--no matter what form it takes.  Our books are designed without distractions and geared for toddlers through beginning readers."  

I know that in this crazy life we live in, our kids get used to computers and other gadgets from a very young age. As a parent, I prefer not to see my child in front of a screen and until now, Nereus hasn't seen any movies (we don't watch tv). We also use the computers only when he's sleeping unless we can't do otherwise (example:search for recipes or some kind of info etc.) . But despite that little interaction he has with technology, he already knows how to turn on (and off but the wrong way) the laptop, since he was 14 months old and he's generally 'interestead' in computers! We have to accept the fact that technology is a big part of our lives and if my kid reads books on the laptop, I say yes!

I asked Calee for a vegan friendly book and she responded with 'Eat Your Words: Numbers & Letters'. A children's book that promotes healthy whole food?! Yay! And guess what? Her family's vegan, too and this is one of the books she has written!



About the book now! First of all it's in kindle form, which means that you can read it on your kindle device (obviously), on your tablet, computer, iphone...whatever! 
"Encourage healthy eating with this counting and alphabet book!
Each page features delicious fruit and vegetables and will expose children to familiar favorites as well and exotic treats.
Kids will learn to count cucumbers and learn their ABCs through nature.

Clean and crisp design make it distraction-free for the littlest readers."

I know by my experience how difficult it is to find all vegan books for your child. You have to check all the pages to make sure that there's nothing there promoting distorted truth, right? Things get harder when you buy books through the internet! Well, I assure you that you can buy this book without second thought!

This book is the perfect fit for vegan families and vegetarian also! But even omnivores who eat (or want to eat) a plant based diet and want to teach healthy eating to their children!

Nereus only wants to read for a few seconds and then put the book back on the bookcase, which is so tiring for me. But he can't do that with kindle books haha! He spent a few minutes pointing at the veggies and 'asking' me what their names are! It was like "aaAAAaah" (at the some tone as mine when I tell him what is what) while pointing on the screen. And I was answering "E is for eEEggplaaant". Oh and when he decided that we should finish he closed the laptop...that crazy kid!

ps. Philip took these photos. He's good at many things...but photos? Well, at least he helped.
