Reviews

A friendly, round-headed cast with pin-dot blue eyes and broad smilles introduce the tasty possibilities of fresh fruit withour ever dropping the vaguest hint of (shh!) nutrition, and the luscious, sunshiny palette of Bartlett's acrylic paintings will set the taste buds tingling. How about this juicy selection just before snack time? * Bull Cent Child Book (1998) * The straightforward text is personalised with simple dialogue that should make reading aloud fun, and Bartlett's sturdy, unbordered double-page spread paintings, in a style so unaffected that it resembles children's own artwork, are a rainbow of fruit colors - strawberry, red, lemon, yellow, lime green, and more. Great for lap sharing or use with small groups. * Booklist (1998) * A wonderfully colourful book... a simple, beautifully illustrated story with an important healthy eating message! * Child Education * A wonderfully humorous book with delightful illustrations both adults and children will enjoy * My Weekly * A fantastic story * Early Years Educator *
