Edible Colors

See, Learn, Eat

Jennifer Vogel Bass

Roaring Brook Press


With a combination of unusual foods and a kaleidoscope of colors, this concept book shows that not all foods have to look the same way. A banana can be red, broccoli can be purple, and cherries can be yellow and still taste just as delicious.

Praise for Edible Colors

“Bass presents a "rainbow of edible colors" in this attractive introduction to colors and food.” —School Library Journal

“This photographic study of colors introduces both widely known and unusual fruits and vegetables . . . This volume presents appetizing produce in an engaging array.” —Kirkus Reviews
