Nasrettin Hoca was a storyteller, teacher and humorist in Turkey in the 1200's A.D. This is one of the stories told about him. Nasrettin Hoca went to a fancy dinner party wearing old worn-out clothes because he did not have time to change. The other guests would not talk to him and the servers would not give him food. He snuck out to go home, get cleaned up and put on his fanciest coat and turban. When he went back to the party in his finery, he was greeted enthusiastically and fed the finest food. Why did he put all of the food inside his coat? Demi's lavish illustrations make the story come alive.

'Eating a rainbow' is a great way to put an appealing spin on the idea of eating a variety of fruits and vegetables. This vibrant book encourages children to eat all the colors of the rainbow in the form of produce. Perfect for preschoolers learning their colors or for beginning readers in need of simple sentences, this book features bright photographs of produce and the kids who eat it.
