The lemons on the tree are finally ripe, and there is great excitement.

Only one of the little lemons is still green. Little Toni has a mind of his own. The view from the lemon tree is enough for him. Who wants to go out into the big wild world? But soon Toni is the only lemon left hanging on the tree. Will he take a risk and jump? When Toni finally lets go, his courage is rewarded.

Nele Brönner’s humorous story about maturity and growing up with her expressive style is sure to charm little listeners.

The Red Lemon
Written & illustrated by Bob Staake
picture book
Recommend Ages: 3-7

In this thought-provoking tale reminiscent of Seuss, Farmer McPhee finds a red lemon in his orchard and cries, “It’s red as a stop sign! It’s red as a rose! I can’t have red lemons where yellow fruit grows! Imagine a world where lemonade’s red? Where once-yellow cupcakes are crimson instead?” As he tosses the red lemon across the water, he can’t imagine that it will land on a small island, sprout a seed, and someday bring forth an orchard of lemon trees…where people will travel to from all over, to try the red lemons that are “six times as sweet!”
