Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Ehlert's eye-catching alphabet book splashes exuberant colors across each page."--Booklist (starred review)
 
"Illustrations . . . seem to grow off the page in bursts of health and freshness."
--The Horn Book
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
An alphabetical tour of the world of fruits and vegetables by a Caldecott honor book winning illustrator. Favorites like tomatoes and bananas are illustrated and named along with less familiar ones such as radicchio and jalapeno peppers. The book contains information notes on each term. 1996, (orig.
Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
All too frequently, teachers tell me that colleagues strike alphabet books from their upper-grade library's order list. That's sad, for the best alphabet books are for everyone. For example with Ehlert's book you can share it as 1) a simply beautiful alphabet book, 2) a sampling of edible plants elementary grade youngsters can categorize (i.e. leaf or root, crunchy or slurpy, yellow or green), whose origins can be pinpointed on a map, or whose preparations reflect cultural similarities or differences, 3) a collection of fine watercolor collages, anyone can try, 4) an information book with glossary entries that are models of tightly constructed, information laden, two-to-four sentence paragraphs. 1996 (orig.
Carolyn Phelan
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.

    Love this book!

    We are trying to ensure our child eats a variety of healthy foods and this book rules. We are planning on making a game of it by cooking something out of the book every day when our child is older and learning about it. Our one year old loves going through the pictures and it has many fruits and vegetables you don't see in most books.

    Is a fruity book

    Eating the Alphabet by Lois Ehlert is an awesome book with very colorful pictures. This is a book about learning your alphabet using fruit and vegetable words. It has a lot of fruit and vegetable words that we almost didn¿t know how to pronounce. Kenyetta and I like this book because it helps children learn their alphabet and we think someone will like this too. It is a good book for kids to read. It is also a good study book if you like to study fruits and vegetables.
