Candace Cheatham, Editor, Kids Corner at Kindle Nation Daily :

I have had the pleasure of reading Shir Guez’s Emma Learns to Sprout. This ebook is short, yet clear, simple and concise. The language is fun and the illustrations are playful, allowing for easy digestion of the message for any young child. Healthy eating habits and understanding the process of growing food begins with teaching our kids early and this is the perfect book to begin that discussion.

This is both a fun and educational book
.

This is a very clever and instructive book with beautiful drawings that will teach children how some foods sprout and are very healthy. Shir Guez describes the process nicely: how to do it, why do it, how long it takes, and how the foods look during the process.
The story is about Emma’s mom teaching her how to sprout and the value of doing so. Sprouting is taking seed of foods that we love to eat and growing them until they become long, big, and beautiful; foods such as chick peas, lentils, beans, and sunflower seeds. After sprouting, people can eat the item raw or in a salad. Emma and her mom are depicted doing so and Emma enjoys what she is doing.
Children will not only learn how to sprout but most of them will come to enjoy these foods once they learn about them.

Fun Book For The kids
.

Interesting little book here, one that can maybe teach children to eat healthier. Kindergartner Emma is shown by her mother how to sprout seeds for use in salads or just to eat outright. Perhaps ways to cook them also.

The artwork is bright with colors and sure to catch a small child’s eye.

Very cute book for young children
.

Emma, this is a really cute book and will introduce very young children to growing food and eating healthy. Children today are so cut off from where food comes from…they just think it’s from the supermarket. Few children have home gardens or have ever seen a farm, so this book will open their eyes to something new. Sprouting is one of the healthiest proteins and they easy to grow. Thanks again for the lovely story. Mimi Kirk

The story is great and so are the illustrations
.

The story is great and so are the illustrations. It is beautiful in the iPad and we already have some lentils sprouting because of it. It’s a great interactive story that peaked my kids’ interest about the “crunchy stuff” mom puts on her salads. The book is educational and really cute.

Sprouting for fun and nutrition
.

Shir Guez has written a delightful story in which Emma learns to eat healthy by her Mom teaching her how to sprout…If your child is always in the kitchen watching what your doing this is a easy little instruction book that will definitely hold their interest…You and your child can do together besides bake cookies all the time….The illustrations are bright and colorful…

Emma learns to sprout or grow lentils, chick peas, beans and that you can even sprout sunflower seeds…They taste good and full of protein, iron and vitamins…You use them as a snack or raw on salads…

Sprouting for fun and nutrition
.

It’s entirely coincidental that my wife and I started an herb garden going yesterday, and now we’re watching for the seeds to germinate. But that’s a little different from sprouting, which Emma and her mom were doing, starting with lentils. Emma’s mom was motivated by the prospects of healthier eating for her family. For Emma, it was an adventure that would end with her eating the tasty lentil sprouts.

It’s a marvelous story for kids not only for the entertainment value but for the simple step-by-step instructions that Emma and her mom used in their sprouting, which required common items that everyone has in their kitchen, such as a strainer. Kids will enjoy eating the sprouts that they grew themselves, and they’ll benefit from the nutritional value of the sprouts.
