What a fun way for preschoolers and early graders to learn about the fruits they eat while picking up some additional language skills. Drawn upon these three dozen tinted pages are colorfully drawn fruits with their names boldly printed. Accompanying these fruity depictions on the facing pages are rhyming riddles asking the reader to guess what the fruit is. The speckled banana is claimed to be shaped like a smile that is bright yellow, and in rhythmic verse, the reader is told to remove its peel for a soft, tropical meal. Let the child guess what fruit resembles a blue colored marble, or which plant has red watery flesh, and grows on a long, green vine. Think of the citrus, so orange bright and a lover of daylight. Children will have fun mimicking the melodious words while dreaming of the colorful fruits, while their imaginative tongues sample the fruits’ delightful textures and flavors. As an educational tool, this little book provides a colorful introduction to the foods we eat, along with a nourishing supply of imaginative language.
