Celia is bored. And with everyone in her family busy she doesn’t know what to do…until her dad gives her a task that leads to her best day ever; the day she meets Cedric and their yummy adventures begin!
After a rainy night Celia had a fun idea as usual. Who knew that what started out as mud and grass clippings would turn out to be the most delicious, delectable snack they or anyone else had tasted…yes, even her teenage brother, Jake.
Celia and Cedric meet a new friend! In this new adventure, they meet the little green dragon who becomes a fun playmate and an inspiration for a yummy new recipe. Celia and Cedric enjoy the Little Green Dragon’s smoothie and you can too!
These are such a great wee series of books for you to read to you kids about nutrition. Celia lives in a town called Healthsville with her mother who is a nutritionist and her father who owns the local natural food market.
Celia meets Cedric who is new to the town in book 1 (Amazing Apples) and she teaches him all about living in Healthsville but means of health and nutrition, it is done in such a way that is makes it fun to read and get the kids talking about healthy eating. At the end of each book is a healthy recipe relating to the story you have read which I think is a brilliant idea. We have yet to try the recipes but this series certainly has got my son talking about what healthy eating is all about.
My oldest son loved to read these books with me and enjoyed reading them himself, though he found it a little hard, as at the moment he used to reading with the text more spaced out, but he enjoyed it none the less.
Brilliant idea for series and I hope that there will be more added to this as I cant wait to see what other delights Celia and Cedric come up with.
