"Justine delights the heart of the primary chapter book reader with her charm, her common sense, and her ability to set an environmental plan in motion and enlist even the most unusual characters to help her in her quest. This thought-provoking, humourous story is a wonderful springboard for topical environmental discussions in the classroom."

"The initiative Justine displays in this story is endearing, and her efforts to help the environment are creative and ambitious. Justine McKeen, Eat Your Beets shows readers how a little consideration and small changes in day-to-day living can make a big impact...This story is told in short, easy to read chapters, and the full-page illustrations by Dave Whamond showcase some of the tale's scenes. The dialogue between Justine and her friends is often humorous, and readers will smile at her somewhat over the top antics. The book concludes with a section of facts about food waste around the globe and tips for kids who want to help prevent it...A fun glimpse into how kids can make a difference in their community and help the environment.
