Editorial Reviews for this title:
Inventive first concept books for babies and toddlers who are just discovering the world around them — in all its color and contrast!
What color are strawberries? Bananas? Grapes? Flip the pages to find out! What happens when you mix these and other wonderful colors together? Peek in the bowl on the last spread for a tasty surprise.
There's nothing like the deep, ruby red of strawberries, glistening orange of oranges, dusky blue of blueberries, and sunny yellow of bananas. In this tasty treat, Petr Horacek celebrates the lovely natural hues of six different fruits. Each right-side page, outlined in the shape of a mound of fruit, decreases in width, creating ever-growing layers of fruit on the left side, until the final page, which brings a delicious surprise. Children will delight in identifying their favorite sweet (or tart) foods while learning their colors. Very simple text ("Strawberries are red, Apples are green, Grapes are purple," etc.) allows early "readers" to follow right along as they look at the watercolor-and-crayon illustrations. And why not round out the color spectrum with Horacek's companion volume, What Is Black and White? (Ages 2 to 5) --Emilie Coulter
