guest post: foods with moods

This is day 2 for me trying to kick a flu bug, so I'm taking it easy with a simple post today about one of our favorite books, How Are You Peeling:

I ordered a copy for myself after coming across it in the waiting room at my doctor's office. And this was when I was in college -- before I even had kids.

Fruits and vegetables are styled to express emotions. Set to a simple rhyme, children learn that it is normal to possess a wide spectrum of feelings; anger, sadness, embarrassment, shyness, love. All through anthropomorphic fruits and veggies. Clever, huh?

Authors Joose Elffers and Saxton Freyman have created an entire series worth checking out.


  1. Yes, all great books! I came across "How are you Peeling" in college also and loved it. I was an El Ed major though:)

  2. This was one of our most favorite books with our oldest and we find ourselves still saying that to each other - how are you peeeeling?

  3. These books are amazing! What a great find!

  4. I love the book "How Are You Peeling". I always read it to my kindergarten classes and they get a big kick out of it. It's very creative.

  5. I love that How are you peeling book! I hope you get feeling better! Sorry you are sick.
