Apples, Cherries, Red Raspberries
TITLE: Apples, Cherries, Red Raspberries What Is In the Fruits Group?
AUTHOR: Brian P. Cleary
ILLUSTRATOR: Martin Goneau
PUBLISHER: Millbrook Press
In this fun read aloud rhyming book, the reader learns about foods in the fruits group. There are ideas of ways to enjoy fruit, such as the juice or in a dessert, as well as the nutritional value of some fruits.
This is a book in the "Food is Categorical" series. The colorful cover and title caught my eye. The illustrations are bright, comical, and will keep the reader's attention. This book would be enjoyed by early elementary aged children. It would be appropriate for a unit on foods and the food groups in the elementary classroom.
