Title:  1 Big Salad: A Delicious Counting Book

Author: Juana Medina


What do you get when you put together some romaine dogs, pepper monkeys, and other food friends?  1 Big Salad may seem like a simple counting book, but it’s really a recipe for the most delightful mixture ever!  Readers will never look at salad ingredients the same again after seeing the five tomato turtles and six cucumber alligators Ms. Medina so cleverly crafts by adding pen lines to actual vegetable photos.  Use the book as a recipe to make a treat to share with friends and family, or as an introduction to mixtures, a second grade academic standard. Any way you slice this salad, it’s sure to be a hit!
