The book today was Where Does Food Come From? by Debra Stilwell.  When Violet heard the title she said, “It comes from the fridge!!”  I asked her where it came from before that and she said, “The grocery store!  Then it comes home to the fridge!”

The book talked about where different kinds of foods come from (fruits, veggies, meat, processed foods) and how they all end up at the market or grocery store.  Violet was concerned about the little girl in the picture having strawberry juice on her pants.  She also wanted to eat the apple out of the apple orchard picture 🙂
