56 страниц. 2013 год. North Atlantic Books Victoria Boutenko responds to the crisis of childhood obesity with a story that makes children excited about nutrition, healthy foods, vegetables and fruits, green smoothies, and the science of plants. This kids' book follows young Nic as he discovers the importance of healthy eating with a plant-rich diet and learns to invent his own healthy recipes for kids. With a pilot father and an artist mother, Nic is an inquisitive child with a fondness for magic. One day, he asks his father where trees come from and is amazed to learn they come from small acorn seeds that grow powered by the sun. His father tells him about the magical green juice, chlorophyll, in all plants. Since humans can't grow with sunlight alone and we don't make our own magical green juice, we need to eat plants to grow big and strong like the oak trees Nic is so fascinated by.
