The Very Hungry Caterpillar, part of children's book review list about fruit

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

This book is truly a childhood classic!  My kids enjoyed it from the time they were babies all the way up until now, at age 4.  A little caterpillar eats all kinds of fruit and eventually turns into a beautiful butterfly.  The board book version has little holes in the fruit that tempt little fingers to get involved.  It is also great for early counting practice!

Eating the Alphabet, part of children's book review list about fruit

Eating the Alphabet by Lois Ehlert

Lois Ehlert has a distinctive artistic style that draws young children in.  This book isn't a story; instead it goes through the alphabet, listing all kinds of fruits and veggies that start with each letter.  We had fun picking out the ones that we knew and seeing and wondering about the ones we weren't familiar with.  This book, with its bright colors and simple text, is suitable for children from birth through preschool.

How Did That Get in My Lunchbox, part of children's book review list about fruit

How Did That Get In My Lunchbox? The Story of Food by Chris Butterworth

 This book encourages children to think about where their food actually comes from, and goes through several items of a child's lunchbox, where they might have come from, and the process that it may have gone through before making its way to their tummies.  The colors are bright and the pictures are engaging.  My toddler had trouble sitting all the way through this book, so I would recommend it for an older preschooler or young elementary school aged child.

The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear, part of children's book review list about fruit

The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear by Don Wood

I first came across this book during a library storytime recently.  It is a cute and simple story about a little mouse who is trying to protect his precious strawberry from a big hungry bear that wants to eat it.  The pictures are charming.  The text is short enough to hold the attention of my toddler, and cute enough for my preschooler to still enjoy.

Orange Pear Apple Bear, part of children's book review list about fruit

Orange Pear Apple Bear by Emily Gravett 

This is a classic board book with soft, attractive watercolor pictures.  There is no real story, but the book repeats the words 'orange, pear, apple, and bear' in different configurations that go along with clever illustrations.  This book is best suited for babies or young toddlers.

Ten Apples Up On Top, part of children's book review list about fruit

Ten Apples Up On Top by Theo LeSieg (Dr. Seuss) 

This may be one of Dr. Seuss's lesser known books, but is a silly story and can be great for counting practice.  Three animals challenge one another to balance more and more apples on top of their heads.  They eventually all come crashing down in a spectacular apple tumble.  This book is appropriate for toddlers, preschoolers, and early elementary aged children.

Pancakes, Pancakes, part of children's book review list about fruit

Pancakes, Pancakes! by Eric Carle 

The only mention of fruit in this books is at the end, when the main character gets some strawberry jam for his pancake, but we love it so I included it in this roundup anyway. A young boy wants a pancake for breakfast, but has to gather all the ingredients himself: flour from freshly milled wheat, milk from the cow, and so on.  At the end he enjoys his pancake with strawberry jam from the cellar.
