Publisher's Summary

The Adventures of Archie Artichoke ® - The Big Show is the first audiobook in a series of stories written about a dynamic community of vegetables and their charismatic leader, Archie Artichoke. The story is fun and includes an ensemble cast of many interesting vegetable characters interacting with each other to create songs and dances for an upcoming show they’ll put on to help a friend in need. The story also contains a variety of child-friendly rhymes and songs.
The narration is relatively long for a children’s story and therefore, it’s divided into 14 sections including: an introduction, 12 days of practice leading up to The Big Show and The Big Show, itself.
The age group envisioned for The Adventures of Archie Artichoke series is between 4 and 9 years old and all the rhymes.
Also, illustrations of all the vegetable characters can be seen on the website and illustrations suitable for coloring can be downloaded.
Here is a brief description of The Big Show:
The Big Show is a wonderful children’s story complete with funny rhymes, songs, jokes and dance. The setting is a beautiful garden where a very interesting community of vegetables lives.
When a problem arises with a friend, everyone works together to help solve it.
The ultimate solution is to put on a show and the ensuing story chronicles the vegetables’ creative evolution as they develop the show’s songs and dances.
Besides being fun to listen to, the story is designed to teach children about:

    Accomplishing a complicated task one step at a time
    Creativity and crafting something completely new
    Working with others to achieve a common goal
    Caring, helping others and friendship, and
    Of course, the names of many important vegetables!!
