The Best Vegetables in the World
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     "We are the best vegetables in the whole world," the carrots said. "We help you see better at night."
 
2     "So what?" the garden peas said. "Peas have Vitamin K in them. Vitamin K helps you have strong bones and teeth. We are the best vegetables in the world."
 
3     The little boy scratched his head. "I like garden peas and carrots. I want to have strong bones and teeth. I want to have good eyes, too. Which one should I choose?"
 
4     "Those vegetables are okay," the tomatoes said, "but we are the best vegetables in the world. We help prevent cancer. No one wants to have cancer. Our job is very important."
 
5     "Don't forget about spinach," the spinach leaves said. "Spinach is an outstanding vegetable. We have many talents. We contain iron, calcium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E. We help you guys do your jobs. We also help red blood cells form. Where would you be without red blood cells?" the spinach asked the little boy.
 
6     "I don't know," the little boy said. "All of you do very important things. All of you help me be strong and healthy. But which one of you is the best?"
 
7     "There is no question," the broccoli said. "Broccoli is the best vegetable in the whole world. Dr. Koop said so. He used to be Surgeon General of the United States. He knows his vegetables."
 
8     All the vegetables started arguing.
