What's terrific about this picture book is that it introduces children to different nutritious foods (fruit and vegetables) according to their colours. It is also terrific to use as a mentor text to reinforce learning about adjectives.
"Budburra's Garden" is written and illustrated by the children of Cherbourg in Queensland, Australia. You can find out more about this picture book, including how to purchase it here: http://www.budburrabooks.com.au/budburras-garden.html
It introduces students to traditional fruits and vegetables, but also traditional Australian Indigenous foods. The picture book includes information about the bush tucker found in "Budburra's Garden" at the back of the book and recipes to "Colour Yourself Healthy". I really think this is a powerful picture book with the potential to be used on many levels.
