Let’s Go To Fruity Land teaches children all about fruit through a fun little story. It begins with a young girl waking up in a bed and finding herself surrounded by fruit. She then walks about and runs into a number of different fruits. Each fruit tells a short story about why they’re good for her and what they’re all about. In the end, we see the little girl making a healthy choice and adding a bunch of strawberries to her breakfast plate.
Obviously, there’s a pretty positive message here and I think it’s the best thing about the book. Each and every fruit is explained in a fun and interesting way. Each fruit’s benefits are described through the story and as a result, kids will see fruits in a better way each time you read this to them. I don’t know about you, but I struggle getting my child to eat right sometimes and if I have a tool like this, I am going to use it.
I’ve reviewed another book by Meital before (The Land of Dreams) and I can promise you that she does a few things right. One of the most important thing she does is her use of rhymes and cadence in her stories. It’s not enough to simply explain the benefits of fruit. Kids will get bored if they’re being bombarded with facts. Instead of doing that, Meital makes the book fun through her use of rhymes and interesting language. It helps children in a number of ways, information retention being the most prominent.
Again, Meital’s illustrations follow a similar path to The Land of Dreams. They’re colorful, exciting, and they have a very distinct style that I can’t say I’ve seen in other children’s books. The characters are interesting to look at and their facial expressions are cute and yet somehow expressive. They’re a pleasure to look at and my little guy loved them. His favorite was the apple’s big teeth!
The other thing I love about the illustrations is just how positive they are. There is not one character in this book that isn’t smiling. As a parent, I’m sure you realize how important that is to helping your child view fruit positively.
In the end, this is a great little book that’s sure to help your child love fruit. We all know how important it is for children to eat right and this book helps out. For only $2.99 USD, this little ebook pushes all the right buttons and it looks great doing it. Head over to Amazon and purchase this book now.
Until next time, Smash, Crash, and Learn!
