...I’m sure anyone would find it a delightful romp through the principles we hold so dear: biodiversity, sustainable farming practices, food ethics and a healthful, natural lifestyle for all. The book is funny, sweet, informative and the artwork is excellent. I am just thrilled to help to spread the word about it. - Suzanne Ballard of New Moon Farm
I’ve just finished reading a WONDERFUL new book that I’d like to recommend to anyone who has kids, knows kids, likes kids, works with kids or has ever been a kid! This is a story about the “search for intelligent food on planet earth” and tells the adventures of a hungry alien looking for some REAL food here on earth. Although “No Eat Not Food” was written for 8 to 12 year olds, I’m sure anyone would find it a delightful romp through the principles we hold so dear: biodiversity, sustainable farming practices, food ethics and a healthful, natural lifestyle for all. The book is funny, sweet, informative and the artwork is excellent.
I am just thrilled to help to spread the word about it.
The book has won two national level book awards, and I personally give it the official “New Moon Farm Sustainable Stamp of Organic Approval!” Suzanne Ballard of New Moon Farm

I would like to introduce you to this wonderful children’s book written by Rick Sanger titled “No Eat Not Food”.I personally love this book and so do my children (ages 11, 9, 8 and 2)! It has aliens, adventure, and bugs! What more could you ask for? Well, it also promotes sustainability, healthy eating habits and the organic lifestyle! The book is written for 8-12 year old’s but the pictures captivate the imagination of all age groups. The message is one that is not presented in such a magnificent way often enough. I just can’t say enough good things about this book, if you would like to see my copy I will be bring it with the next few delivery days.
This would be a great gift idea for children of all ages, the holidays are just around the corner! Carrie Farris JAX Natural Foods
While this book is probably targeting children in the 6-12 year-old age range, my 3-year old son loves it. It has become one of his favorite books. It is a fun story about an alien bug named "No Eat" and his earthling friend Lulu, who go about teaching children the importance of sustainable farming and the benefits of eating healthy organic foods. When my son was recently offered some junk food, he loudly stated, "No eat, not food", and turned it down!

A great book teaching about how important
organic food can be. Before I read this book I didnt really think that
organic food was that important, but after I read the book, I learned that
organic food can be be very heathy for our bodies. No eat is my favorite
character because when the kids first meet him, he refuses the chip that they
offered him to stay healthy.
Fabulous is the word to use to describe such
a fun, but deep meaning, book. Its kid-friendly story is a wonderful way to
teach children the difference between natural and processed foods (a line not
so clearly drawn these days). Through cute characters, a plot is built around
the notion of eating foods that are great for both humans and the earth from
which we live.
i loved this book because it is a fun
teaching tool and a thought provoking read with amazing illustrations. no eat
not food educates kids of all ages (including those of us who never grow up!)
the importance of sustainable practices and to be cognitive of what we put in
our bodies. I can

This book is as important as the book you

Lulu, take a brother and sister through the process of learning about
sustainably grown, organic food. They show the kids how it
