We love this book!
It’s so perfect! Full of vibrant colour and light.
Valerie Bloom’s happy, funny poem is gorgeously illustrated by David Axtell.
Every page is full of delicious mischief and tasty, sweet, juicy fruit.
The rhyming story is told in the first person from the point of view of a delightfully naughty little girl who loves fruit and eats as much as she can get her hands on while teaching little sis how to get it without getting caught.
The written-in Caribbean accent naturally adds sunshine to the words and you really feel like you’re inside the head of big sis; which makes you as eager as she to taste all those juicy fruits.
I probably shouldn’t show any more, wouldn’t want to spoil the ending 😉 You really should get down to the library and borrow this wonderful book (or get your own copy) – especially if you’ve got a little one who’s learning to count.
Highly highly recommended 😀
