    We received our copy of “Paleo Pals: Jimmy and the Carrot Rocket Ship” last night! I wish I had a picture of me with my kids (ages 6 & 8) snuggled up, one on each side, as we read the book.
    I couldn’t have said any of it better myself! (Actually, I tried multiple times to tell the kids all of the truths from your storybook, but it just wasn’t the same coming from mom.) My kids felt bad for Jimmy’s mom when he didn’t want to eat the meal she had cooked. They were disgusted by the snack factory, and felt proud that we pick up our veggies from our CSA / Farmer’s Market. As soon as we were finished with the book, they couldn’t wait to eat their Paleo dinner! (Although they do like a lot of your food already. I just don’t make a big deal about it being Paleo. Puerto Rican Beef is a favorite around here.)
    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! This was exactly what we needed!
    There is only one problem with your book… My kids can’t wait to read about the Paleo Pals next adventure!
    Umm… No pressure… 😉

    I just got the mail and was so very excited to see the book had arrived! I ripped it open and read it to my kids and they (4&6) LOVED it. My 6-year old daughter asked if I could get more of these books with the Paleo Pals’ adventures. Thank you for explaining this lifestyle in such a kid-friendly way so they don’t have to hear my speeches any more. Are more books on the way? Hope so! Keep up the great work.

    I bought the book and it looks good. I have some foods you might consider adding to your Paleo Pals Approved Food List:

    Carrots–we at least need them to make the carrot rocket ship 😉
    Parsnips–basically more nutritious carrots, but be sure to buy the smallest, least tough ones when eating raw, and the larger, tougher ones can be used in soups/stews/broths
    Fresh coconut (not just the coconut products)

    The following would be more of a hard sell and I don’t expect you to add many of them, but I find them to be some of the most beneficial foods in my diet, though some are expensive. Perhaps you could sneak them into a special “hardcore Paleo” section of the book :) :
    Organs like liver and heart
    Duck, quail and rabbit meat
    Fish roe (caviar; considered a food especially good for children and pregnant mothers among traditional peoples, per Weston Price and other sources)
    Fresh sardines
    Seaweeds like kelp
    Raw fermented veggies like sauerkraut
    Raw honey, especially raw fermented (it’s not alcoholic)
    Suet (raw tallow) from Grass-fed cows–I know, very hard sell, but my single most beneficial food and it can be made into home-made tallow, but I get the greatest benefit from it raw
    Raw fermented cod liver oil
    Olives (perhaps next to “Olive Oil”; they are mentioned in one of the recipes)

    Also, there are now coconut milk cans and cartons that do not contain bisphenol A (BPA).

    I won the cast iron skillet from this giveaway and wanted to tell Sarah and Lodge Cast Iron “THANK YOU!” I love it. I just got it yesterday and can’t wait to use it. Also, my 3 year old loves the book. She askes me to read it to her everyday and she talks about it and tells people about it all the time.

    Hi. I haven’t bought or read your book but just wanted to say that I am so pleased somebody has finally done something that kids can relate to. Thank you although mine are all grown up. I have a really hard job convincing adults let alone children that Paleo is the way to go. Hopefully when I manage to get more information on my website it will help in the overall movement. Thanks again
