Lois Ehlert's Eating the Alphabet: Fruits & Vegetables from A to Z contains illustrations of 74 fruits and vegetables, from the everyday apple to the exotic jicama. Each letter of the alphabet is represented in large serif font in uppercase and lowercase and is represented by illustrations of one to eight fruits and vegetables. The illustrations are captioned with spellings of each fruit and vegetable, once in all uppercase and once in all lowercase. The illustrations depict the fruits and vegetables as they appear at the supermarket, even including the wide rubber bands often found on asparagus and broccoli and the cardboard tubs that hold strawberries and blueberries. The bright illustrations are in sharp contrast with the flat, white background. The overall effect of the illustrations and type styling is crisp, clean, and colorful. The book also includes a glossary of fruits and vegetables, with a small picture, pronunciation, designation as fruit and/or vegetable, and a brief description. This glossary is particularly useful for items such as xigua (she-gwah), the Chinese name for watermelon. Children will enjoy learning the more exotic fruits and vegetables. This book will aid children in recognizing letters and the multiple words for each letter allow children to recognize the pattern of sounds associated with each letter.

This is a very nice board-book. The illustrations are bright and eye-catching, featuring all the usual fruits and vegetables as well as some of the more exotic ones. Each letter is printed in both upper- and lower-case, as are all the names of the fruits and vegetables (Yy YAM yam). This board book--based on a picture book for slightly older children--is probably best suited for toddlers who can identify some of the familiar items. It would be an ideal gift for a vegetarian or vegan family as it shows absolutely no animal products!

Excellent! All three of my children adored the board book version of Eating the Alphabet. It provides a nice way to expose toddlers to a variety of interesting fruits and vegetables -- they get a kick out of repeating words like "jicama" and "jalapeno". Highly recommended.

The board book version of this title is cute, but treat yourself ( and your child,too!) to the full-sized hardcover edition. It's a feast for the eyes! Yum!

My children love this colorful book, Eating the Alphabet, by Lois Ehlert. This book helps to educate children about the different fruits and vegetables for every letter of the alphabet. It has inspired my children to want to try new fruits and vegetables that they've never had before. We have also been able to identify fruits and vegetables in the produce section at the grocery store that we might have once overlooked. One of my daughters actually requested Brussels sprouts after reading this book for the first time. We made them, and while she didn't love them the first time she had them, she was proud to say that she tried them. After having eaten them many times now, she likes them, and I have to say we probably never would have tried Brussels sprouts in the first place if it wasn't for this book!We love the artwork of Lois Ehlert and the bright, bold colors she uses. She makes everything look appetizing and as a result will encourage children I'm sure to try more fruits and vegetables!

I cannot say enough good things about this book! the pictures are amazing and colorful. It's so freakin adorable listening to my toddler say things like "Persimmon" and "Rhubarb". She is always reading this book and I like that it's introducing new foods to her through reading, that way when she's over the "scary food" toddler phase she might be more inclined to try them!

This vocabulary book goes through the alphabet and gives examples of fruits and vegetables that begin with said letter. No candy, sweets, meats, or any animal products in this one (guess they did not want to offend any dietary restrictions).Each letter of the alphabet has at least one healthy example of food. Each food has a colorful illustration but readers may need help attaching each word to the appropriate picture. Some of the illustrations are a little questionable (I never saw a cauliflower like the one pictured).Both of my kids enjoy this book and have had me read it a number of times on just the first day. I haven't noticed them wanting to eat any more vegetables than before but their vocabulary is better.

no one could believe our two year old knew what a zucchini or kiwi was by sight! and the 'ugly fruit' is a favorite in our house. great book for introducing a picky eater to different fruits and veggies. wish it was a bigger book... but it is good for small hands to hold.
