The Big Show

The Big Show takes children to a beautiful garden where a dynamic group of vegetables lives with their engaging leader, Archie Artichoke. In this adventure, Archie and his friends want to help a family of squirrels gather acorns for the winter because the squirrels have been busy caring for their sick child. The veggies work together and put on a show that will collect the needed acorns. The story chronicles the vegetables’ creative process as they develop the show’s unique songs, dance, juggling and trained worm acts. This illustrated chapter book contains a variety of child-friendly rhymes, jokes, and songs. All of the Archie Artichoke series books are written specifically to help children develop their imagination through visual imaging text and dialogue complemented with full color illustrations. And besides being fun to read, The Big Show is designed to teach children about:

Accomplishing a difficult task and solving problems;
  • Working with others to achieve a common goal;
  • Creativity and crafting something completely new;
  • Caring, helping others, friendship; and
  • The names of many important vegetables!

The Big Show is the first book in The Adventures of Archie Artichoke chapter book series written about a remarkable garden of vegetables. As with all the Archie Artichoke books, many colorful illustrations are placed throughout the story to enhance its narrative.

Because The Big Show is relatively long for a young children’s story, it is designed to be read over several days/nights. The age group for the Adventures of Archie Artichoke series is between three and nine years old. The narrative is designed to be read to a child, and third-grade children will delight in reading the books on their own.
