The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based booklist available as an online-only Bulletin feature. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

This Bulletin Dozen is formatted as a double-sided, tri-fold brochure. Select double-sided option when printing or print out both pages and photocopy accordingly. PDF (Portable Document Format) files are read using Adobe's Acrobat Reader. Download a free copy of Acrobat or read more information on downloading PDFs.

Fresh Veggies:  A Vegetable Dozen

--selected by Jeannette Hulick, Reviewer

Of course, vegetables are good for you, but they can also be immensely entertaining (witness the success of the “VeggieTales” shows).  Here are a dozen amusing and delicious offerings for kids of all ages, so break out the broccoli, pass around the peas, and pull out that Mr. Potato Head.  Even if your youngsters normally turn up their noses at, uh, turnips, try handing them one of these tasty titles and pointing the way to the sofa, where they can indulge in a little guilt-free “vegging out.”
