Ernestine Prowell Maxie, a career educator, mother, and grandmother who retired in June 2012 after teaching elementary and high school in Chicago Public Schools for thirty-four years, has completed her new book “If I Were a Vegetable or Fruit, I Would Truly Want to Be…”: a lighthearted and educational resource for parents, caregivers, and teachers educating children about the importance of a healthy diet.

The author shares, “I was inspired to write this book because of the many lives lost, young and old, due to the potentially deadly flu virus. This book is written with pure “love” to help guide our precious youngsters into learning how to make healthier food selections in order to promote healthier immune systems. This book is to never be used in place of medical advice or guidance. Please enjoy the book and have fun reading it and discussing it with your loved ones. Please enjoy the “cold” salad! Recipe is found at the end of this book.”
