What experts are saying about Give It a Go, Eat a Rainbow
"As an organic gardener and a mother of two, I’m thrilled to see a book that makes eating simple, whole fruits and vegetables fun and accessible for kids. In a world full of screens, processed foods, and bad news, Kathryn and Alex’s engaging message is more important than ever. Give It a Go, Eat a Rainbow deserves a spot in every classroom and home as a powerful way to connect the basic foods we grow and eat to a larger lesson in healthy living.
-Jeanne Nolan, founder of The Organic Gardener and author of From the Ground Up
"I love the message of Give It A Go, Eat A Rainbow. Using a very positive, uplifting approach, Kathryn and Alex very skillfully provide an essential teaching to the young reader in a way that is fun, engaging, and inspiring. This book needs to be shared with every child to help set them on a path of healthy eating for a lifetime."
-Joan Posivy, Bestselling author of The Way Success Works: How to Decide, Believe, and Begin to Live Your Best Life
"Statistically speaking, zero percent of children in America are meeting the American Heart Association’s “Simple Seven” guidelines for a healthy heart. Why? Poor diet. When it comes to health, this is where our children are at the greatest risk. If there is ever a time when we need Kathryn Kemp Guylay’s newest book, Give It a Go, Eat a Rainbow, it’s now. Kathryn, with help from friends and her son, has created a resource that is engaging to KIDS. With colorful, magical illustrations and a well-crafted storyline, Give It a Go, Eat a Rainbow brings fruits and veggies to life. I strongly recommend this book and I urge everyone to bring it to every student in every elementary school in the country. Thank you, Kathryn!"
-Laura Putnam, CEO of Motion Infusion and author of Workplace Wellness that Works
"Eating a rainbow of fruits and vegetables is such a fun and actionable way for young children to learn about healthy nutrition. Students love hands-on activities, and the multi-media nature of the book (with links to so many resources for parents and teachers) makes Give It a Go, Eat a Rainbow a key tool for the classroom setting. It is so important to start healthy eating habits at a young age."
-Janet Salvoni, Head of Elementary School, Community School of Sun Valley, Idaho
"Getting kids excited about eating fruits and veggies is a top health priority for our nation. I'm thrilled to see a fun and inspiring book targeting kids at a very young age. That age group is where the magic can happen in terms of establishing healthy dietary patterns that last a lifetime."
-Dr. Tia Rains, PhD in Nutrition
Give It a Go, Eat a Rainbow is an inspired, inspiring romp through eating healthfully. With the help of her son and some talented friends, Guylay makes eating fruits and vegetables a delicious daily habit for all ages.

Why the Kickstarter?
Traditional publishers turned down our idea of a 54-page book about a magical journey through healthy produce. Why? They said kids "didn't have the attention span" for a book longer than 32 pages. We are proving them wrong! (Click on the image above to learn more).
