Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Red strawberries, orange oranges, yellow bananas, green apples, blue blueberries and purple grapes all have a page in this die cut board book. Flip to the last page and you have a colorful bowl of fruit salad ready to eat. A delicious way to learn colors and recognize a very healthy food group. The illustrations created in watercolor and crayon are strong and simple. Part of the "Look Inside!" series. 2001, Candlewick, $4.99. Ages 2 to 4. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-In Strawberries, listeners are introduced to various fruits on double-page spreads that feature boldly hued watercolor-and-crayon artwork. "Strawberries are red./Oranges are orange." However, "Apples are green" may give some youngsters pause, as may "Grapes are purple." The final spread has a die-cut opening showing all of the fruits with the caption: "Look at all the colors in my fruit salad!" Similarly, in Black and White, listeners are told "The night is black./The snow is white." The pages become progressively smaller; on the final spread, the text reads: "The zebra is black and white" and the truncated edges form its stripes. The uncomplicated illustrations use bright energetic colors. Suitable choices for lap sharing and toddler programs.-Olga R.
