This is a wonderful introduction to nonfiction texts for the littlest readers! It goes through how to start a garden while reviewing foods and colors that little ones may already be familiar with. It has elements of non fiction text including a table of contents, index, and glossary. The book has resources at the end for further exploration. All of this is included with Sesame Street friends throughout the whole book!

I find that the non-fiction Sesame street books are always colorful, engaging, and easy to navigate. Grow Your Colors by Jennifer Cook is no exception. Young readers will enjoy the familiar characters, the comfort of learning about colors, and new ideas such as learning about gardening and the importance of colorful fruits and vegetables. This would be a great addition for any preschool, library, or caregiver's home.
A great book for littles about the different foods that they can grow! The Sesame Street characters make the content extra engaging. This is a great non-fiction addition to any child's library.
A fun introduction to gardening for toddlers and preschoolers. Having the Sesame Street characters throughout the book is an added bonus since many young children LOVE Sesame Street. The real photos in the book make this a great non-fiction text. A great Spring read for sure since it talks about starting a garden and the child could do the same steps as the Sesame Street characters. A great way to show what colorful HEALTHY foods kids can eat too
This is a cute book with the Sesame Street characters that youngsters will recognize. It teaches the importance of eating healthy with fruits and vegetables and planting a garden. I think families will enjoy this book.
Grow Your Colors will make a nice addition to a young child’s library. Spend time with favorite Sesame Street characters while learning about colors, gardens and healthy eating. The text is age appropriate and, in addition to the photos of Sesame Street residents, there are many other appealing photos of kids, adults and growing things.
Start good habits early with this title.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Lerner Publishing Group for this title. All opinions are my own.
You can’t go wrong with Big Bird and the rest of Sesame Street. This book shows different color foods that you can grow and encourages healthy eating
We adore Sesame Street in our home and it is a big part of our everyday lives. I was so happy to receive this ebook as an ARC and to share it with my little ones. This fun book uses Sesame Street characters to introduce color and healthy food to children. With bright and bold pictures and real life images children get to see the colors they are learning in the foods they love and new foods to try. The book also teaches them how to plant their own garden and to enjoy the healthy food themselves. I love that the book even shows recipes like Fruit Salad that children can make with their families. My children love the characters and seeing them with the new foods they want to try them too. I highly recommend this book for families of little ones and even to share in early childhood classrooms.
My young son really enjoyed this book. It included two of his favorite things- gardening and Sesame Street. It is so important to teach children the importance of eating fruits and vegetables at a young age. My son is looking forward to helping me make a fruit salad now. Definitely a fun and educational book for young children.
Perfect book for any Sesame Street fan! The pages are filled with bright and colorful photos. All of the characters are included and help teach the reader about colors, gardening, and the importance of eating healthy vegetables. My toddler loved it!
Grow Your Colors Planting and Eating Healthy Foods with Sesame Street is a terrific book for little ones for a multitude of reasons. First, my son instantly recognized the Sesame Street characters featured in the book, which made it enjoyable for him. Secondly, Grow Your Colors showcased a variety of fruits and vegetables that are not often found in children's books. Most importantly, Grow Your Colors used actual photographs of the fruits and vegetables. When I look for a book for my son, I always try to find books that feature photographs instead of illustrations. Admittedly, the books that use photographs instead of illustrations are not always the most fun for him, so a mix of both is needed. Grow Your Colors combines fictional characters and real photographs perfectly.
When I saw the cover of this book with Sesame Street in the title, I knew I was in for a good time. The alternating colorful illustrations of Sesame Street characters with photographs of children in vegetable gardens were eye-catching. Several different topics are addressed in this little nonfiction children’s book as readers are motivated to plant seeds and watch them grow, eat healthy food and even group food by color.
I love Sesame Street books because they're quick and easy to read and teach the kids so much. This one is nice because it talks about fruits, veggies, and other things you grow in the garden but also teaches children about their colors.
6 yo: I like seeing my favorite characters and pretending to do their voices. And learning about gardens which are my favorite!
Adult review: A cute story! The bright colors and pictures kept a 2yo and 6yo engaged. It is definitely a book we would have on our shelves. The potato line was a little out of place and random since we were on the color Blue for blueberries.
Overall this is a great story to learn about colors, getting kiddos excited about gardening and eating fresh produce! Having the colors of the rainbow represented was a sweet touch!
Cute book! Exactly what you would expect to find in a Sesame Street book! Full of vibrant pictures and wonderful information on planting a garden. Great way to talk about colors too.
This is a colorful, vibrant informational children's book about fruits, vegetables, and colors. Clear, colorful images of children planting, picking, and caring for gardens accompany simple, easy-to-understand text about the colorful fruits and vegetables that can be grown in them, The beloved, well-known Sesame Street characters are interspersed throughout the book to give their own commentary through speech bubbles.
This book would be most fun for children ages 2-5.
That said, it would benefit the readers if the author included photographs of all the fruits and vegetables mentioned in the book, even if they were just included in the glossary. As an educator, I know that many children won't have the vocabulary and/or experience to know what a honeydew, bell pepper, blue potato etc. look like.
