Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beth-Anne White
Mari Schuh's book about fruits, their role in good nutrition, and the importance of eating the recommended daily amount of fruits is a color-filled, easy-to-understand book. At the beginning, Schuh shares the image that helps guide the reader through the rest of the book. The purpose is clearly set, and adults and children will be able to follow along. The format of the book is to have words on the left page accompanied by a huge and beautiful picture on the right page. The few words on the left-hand page are easy for early readers. The pictures engage the reader to want to eat the beautiful fruits shown. Schuh also includes what the portion sizes would look like in the conclusion of the book so that adults and children can have an idea of appropriate amounts to eat. This book is part of the "What's On My Plate?" series, which supports the national science standards related to health and nutrition. In a note to parents and teachers, the publisher provides help to aid understanding and make the books as beneficial as possible for the early reader. Reviewer: Beth-Anne White
