This amazing great value starter pack introduces the REAL (Reading Eating and Learning) System. The Starter Pack includes the book Discovering Vegetables with Veggie vole, one of a series of 10 refill books in the Discovering Food Series. Also included in the starter pack is the book refill platform incorporating the food sample pod, a reward chart and branded stickers. You can go on to collect the full series of 10 books as they are released. The book series covers the main healthy food groups, fruit & vegetables, grains, protein and dairy with up to 80 foods to learn about and sample.
Each book is carefully designed to suit pre-school children. The beautiful illustrations are in a vivid realism style, with a white background for maximum clarity. Our Sassoon Infant typeface has been carefully chosen for early readers. The page layout is presented in an uncluttered format for ease of reading. The large font appeals to all young children, including partially-sighted children and those with special needs.
The Taste ‘n’ Tell REAL System uses a methodology based on a ‘Peer modelling and rewards-based intervention’ approach. Academic research has demonstrated the application of three factors; taste exposure, role-models and rewards, leads to an effective and sustainable way to increase children’s consumption of new healthy foods.
The books are designed in a lie-flat board book format. They each have eight thick, glossy card leaves. The left-hand page of each double spread contains large vivid photographs of individual foods, depicting images of the food in its whole form, sliced on a plate and showing the origin. The right-hand page displays the rhyming couplets, along with beautifully-illustrated characters discovering their favourite food.
