Romeo Runs to Eat a Rainbow
by Kim Jackson
One day, Romeo sees a beautiful rainbow and decides to run and chase it, imagining the taste of each and every color. As he runs, Romeo discovers fruits and vegetables of all colors that he has never seen before! From pumpkins and bananas to blueberries and eggplants, Romeo runs along, eating this new, tasty rainbow as he plays. Children learn through Romeo’s discoveries that these colorful foods, like red strawberries, are good for their hearts, while other fruits and veggies can make their hair shiny and soft or give them energy, so they can run and play. When Romeo has tasted every color and his belly is full of yummy and healthy food, he runs home to dream— of rainbows and fruits, and other happy things!
