A vibrant and sturdy word book starring fruits and vegetables from around the world from Caldecott Honor-winning author-illustrator Lois Ehlert. Features upper- and lowercase letters for preschoolers just learning language.

Each turn of the page reveals a mouth-watering arrangement of foods: Indian corn, jalapeno, jicama, kumquat, kiwifruit and kohlrabi. Lois Ehlert's lively watercolors paired with bold easy-to-read type make for a highly appealing and accessible book for parents and children to devour.

At the end of the book, Ehlert provides a detailed glossary that includes pronunciation, botanical information, the origin and history of the particular plant and occasional mythological references, with a small watercolor picture to remind the reader of what the plant looks like.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 1^-3. A board-book version of Ehlert's bright, bold alphabet book of fruits and vegetables, this is smaller than the original, but almost identical in content. Since the shape of the book remains the same, the layout and pictures are intact. The glossary is gone, but it will not be missed at this age level. The brilliant colors look even more vibrant on the glossy, laminated pages, though the illustrations lose some of their graphic punch when reduced in size. Still, a well-designed book for toddlers intrigued by parsnips, potatoes, peas, peppers, pumpkins, and the like. --Carolyn Phelan"
