Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Colors, shapes and types of fruit share the agenda of this visually arresting volume, a riddle book with a social conscience. Facing a page displaying shades of a particular hue is a puzzle, e.g., ``I'm red, I'm round,/ I fall to the ground. What am I?'' Above the verse, a die-cut square (it is labeled) previews a mysterious red field that, with the turn of the page, is revealed as part of an an apple. The geometric die-cuts vary with each fruit, as do the colors. An ingenious, surprising detour ventures into deeper waters: ``In nature, there will always be/ a rainbow in the things you see./ In places here, and foreign lands,/ the rainbow can be seen in hands/ that make the world a better place-/ a rainbow of the human race.'' Pseudonymous author Charles's rhymes flow with easy grace, and the Dillons (The Sorcerer's Apprentice) illustrate with large-screen, Technicolor hyperrealism, gorgeous in its own right and supportive of the full curriculum at hand. Ages 3-7. (Sept.)
Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
With geometrical die cuts, vivid illustrations of fruit, and verse, preschoolers learn colors and shapes. It's a guessing game that imparts concepts and lets kids appreciate the art of Caldecott Medal-winning artists Leo and Diane Dillon.
Children's Literature - Yvonne Kidd Herbst
This colorful and cleverly designed die cut book uses simple, rhyming text to teach very young readers the names of basic colors, geometric shapes, and common fruits. Printed on high-quality, heavyweight, semi-glossy paper, this book features gorgeous yet simple illustrations in vivid colors that will captivate young eyes.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-This clever book is essentially a guessing game that encourages readers to name the colors, shapes, and types of fruit described in simple riddles and revealed by turning the die-cut pages. Vibrant graphics in photoreal detail show the tempting produce on its respective bush, tree, or vine. Charles ends the lyrical presentation with a reference to the ``rainbow of the human race.'' A multifaceted, beautifully designed book that will serve a variety of needs, and will introduce several different concepts in a unique, entertaining way.-Jan Shepherd Ross, Dixie Elementary Magnet School, Lexington, KY
