School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-This companion to Sayre's Rah, Rah, Radishes! (S & S, 2011) introduces another important food group. Short, catchy rhyming phrases line nearly full-page photos of fruits, ranging from the familiar, like apples, oranges, and, of course, grapes, to the more exotic rambutans, lychee, and persimmons. All of them are pictured in baskets or bunches, the way they would look in the supermarket. This approach presents the types of produce as kids are likely to encounter them. The rhythm of the text and the size of the images make this book a good choice for sharing with a group. However, readers should note that sometimes two fruits share a picture, and it isn't always clear which one is which, so a little bit of pre-storytime research might be in order. The book ends with a page on fruit facts and a spread of fruit faces proclaiming: "Fruit is fun!" Kids are bound to agree.-Heather Talty, formerly at Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School, New York City (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Booklist Review

A companion to Rah, Rah, Radishes! A Vegetable Chant (2011), Sayre's newest incantation is a mouthwatering paean to fruit from such usual suspects as blueberries and strawberries to more exotic tangelos, tamarillos, durians, persimmons, and kiwanos. Along with enjoying the simple rhymes' pounding, elemental rhythms ( Figs are fabulous. / Currants call. / Love a lychee / Fruit eyeball! ), young audiences can feast their eyes on a set of large, intensely colored close-up photos of each fruit in, usually, temptingly heaped-up grocery displays. Closing with a giggle-inducing spread of sliced-fruit smiley faces followed by a final note on fruit's natural functions and nutritional value, this will not only forcibly turn storytime into snack time, but it should also be a hit whether read alone or aloud, before or after any meal.--Peters, John Copyright 2010 Booklist
