Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Oliver enjoys helping his grandfather grow and pick fruit from the garden, but even though he sings the praises of the bountiful produce, he won't eat any of it. Puzzled, his mother just smiles and keeps on trying to entice him to taste fruit, not just talk about it. That is until Grandpa comes to visit and enlists Oliver's aid in making a big, colorful fruit salad; it is so irresistible that the boy consumes three bowls full. Acrylic illustrations are bold, bright, and full of childlike appeal. A suitable selection for finicky eaters.-Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA
Kirkus Reviews
Oliver, who didn't like vegetables in French and Bartlett's Oliver's Vegetables (1995), returns to express his opinions on fruit. The canned and packaged fare offered by his mother makes him unhappy; none of it measures up to the fresh garden goodies he saw while staying at Grandpa and Gran's. So they go to the market and load up on fresh fruit, which Oliver also turns down: "No, thank you. I just helped Grandpa. I didn't eat any of the fruit. I don't like fruit." Then Grandpa and Gran come for a visit and they whip up a fruit salad, which is so eye-pleasing that Oliver digs in. This story doesn't have the clever twist or the narrative strength of Oliver's introduction to vegetables, which involved discovery and connectionþthis time he decides to eat the fruit because it looks nice. But French's story is never didactic, and perfectly reflects many children's feelings about fruit. Bartlett's artwork is as lush and electric as ever, demonstrating in the selection of fruit an act akin to picking jewels. (Picture book. 3-6)
