Talk about nuts! This book has so much information in it about nuts that it is truly remarkable. The author says she has written it for ages 5 – 11 and grades 1 – 6. At the beginning there is the definition of nuts and that was the first thing that amazed me. Botanical and culinary definitions are included. This book addresses the culinary portion as that is the one used in nutrition. Some of the nuts included are peanuts, almonds, pecans, pistachios, walnuts and Brazil nuts. Each nut is also broken down by minerals, protein and vitamins. I thought the drawing of the bear in bed was a welcome addition to the book.

The answer is also given as to which is the healthiest concerning salted, roasted or raw nuts. Peanuts are the richest in protein which is a fascinating fact. Nuts are also not recommended for children under the age of 4.

For me, the most interesting fact concerned lutein. I have vision problems and take a vitamin supplement that includes lutein. What I learned from this book is that pistachios are the richest in lutein of all nuts. And, they also include Vitamin A which is good for vision. So, I guess you know that pistachios are now on my shopping list.

I found this to be an excellent book for facts about nuts. I know the author has written it for children but I learned so many facts from it.

Most highly recommended. Well done to the author for another outstanding book for children and adults as well.

I eat nuts every day so I was curious as to what I’d learn from a book about nuts. Well can I say this is essential reading. I didn’t realize you could eat too many Brazil nuts. I eat only two a day so I’m safe but eating more than four could be dangerous. I would never have known that unless I read this book.

Basically this book talks about the benefits of eating nuts as a snack. There are tips for how you can make nuts even healthier.

This book contains information on hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, peanuts, cashews, pecans, macadamia nuts, walnuts, almonds, pistachios, pine nuts and chestnuts. I must say I’ve tried them all.

There are also plenty of pictures and lots of fun facts. The information describes the nutrients in each type of nut.

This is the most interesting book I’ve ever read on nuts. You will be happy you read it.

Nuts about Nuts is a very educational book about, well, Nuts! It is geared towards children who are ages 5-11, though my 4 year old thoroughly enjoyed me reading it to him. It is written in a simple-to-understand language and jam packed with information regarding different types of nuts including, peanuts, pistachios, brazil nuts and walnuts.

The book starts off explaining how different nuts should be eaten to get the most nutrients out of them so that they are a healthy snack. I didn’t realize that nuts could be unhealthy but the author explains it very well. After this first section, the book goes into details about 11 nuts total. The author informs us about the different vitamins and minerals that are contained in each nut along with details about the different vitamins and minerals contained in them. I was very impressed at how informative this was about the different nuts we eat.

To top all this wonderful information off, the author also adds Fun Facts about different nuts after each section. Do you know the word for pine nuts in Tuscan? Well in this book you will find out! And I had no idea that chestnuts are the richest in Vitamin C. Each different nut has it’s own Fun Fact, which makes it more interesting for adults and children alike to read.

If you want to make better informed decisions about how you eat nuts and just want general information about them, I highly recommend this book. It can be an open door to letting your children into the world of healthier eating choices and how good nuts really are for us.

Author Shir Guez’s educational preparation focused on a double major in Economics and Accounting, but it is obvious form her current output that she has become passionate about healthy living: she not only is an author of repute but also serves as editor in chief of a health website. ‘

Using her own very fine photographs, Shir discusses the many kinds of nuts – many of which children will never have heard of (or even some adults) – Peanuts, Almonds, Pecans, Pistachios, Walnuts, Macadamia nuts, Cashews, Pine nuts, Chestnuts, Hazelnuts, and Brazil nuts. She emphasizes that nuts make a healthy snack (except for children under 4 who may choke on them!) but also when nuts are healthy and at times unhealthy (such as sweetened nuts). Then she goes through each of the nuts she has mentioned, relating the good appoint and contents and how much of them we can safely eat. She discusses the vitamins in each nut and why they are important to our health, and all along this photographic essay she share fun facts about each nut.

Shir has a relaxed, calming writing style that makes learning concepts and processes fun to read and to perform. This is a very fine children’s book that teaches the fun of learning about nuts and with it the principals of healthy eating. As an addendum she offers a recipe book for cooking with nuts. Shir has fun with this book and while it is meant for children there is so much fine information here that adults will find it equally beneficial. Excellent resource – fun reading! High Recommended.
