Mrs. Peanuckle’s Fruit Alphabet introduces babies and toddlers to the colorful foods that will help them grow up to be healthy and strong. Children and parents alike will want to devour the fun facts and charming illustrations of fruits from the familiar banana to the not as familiar yumberry.
Mrs. Peanuckle’s Fruit Alphabet is the second in a series of board books celebrating the joy nature brings to young children at home and in the backyard, from fresh fruits and vegetables to birds, bugs, flowers, and trees.
I’ve loved every Mrs Peanuckle book I’ve read thus far—informative, engaging, and so gorgeously unique. My son adores fruit above all else, so this is our family’s current favorite of the series—it has the perfect mix of fruits he can recognize (peaches & pears, bananas, watermelons) and fun new fruit facts to learn (who knew xigua was Chinese watermelon?!) Also, bonus points for being an excellent “accordian read”—if my son starts to lose interest I just skip the facts and only read the fruit names—and for being intellectually stimulating for adults too. This is truly an amazing alphabet book!
Superfoods for toddlers! In this wonderfully colorful primer featuring a wide variety of fruits in all shapes and sizes, children are introduced to a wide variety of fruits. Not only does Mrs. Peanuckle instruct children on how the fruits grow, but also on how they are eaten and in what combinations. This book is beautiful encouragement for children to try fruits that may be unfamiliar to them. Hooray for Mrs. Peanuckle for remembering that ice cream is delicious with any fruit!
Love, love, love this book! One of my all-time favorite board books. I even learned a few new things from it as an adult! The illustrations and colors are bold and so cute. I love that the font in this book is a little more fun, and the book has great content.
Mrs. Peanuckle loves to write, talk to animals and birds, and putter in her garden. She has a vast assortment of children and grandchildren (some of them pets and some of them imaginary). She also collects rocks, shells, books, and eccentric friends. When she is not traveling and exploring the universe, you can find her cooking and eating while singing in her magical cabin in the woods. Most of all, she loves to laugh.View Author
