Very cute board book! Did you know Avocado is a fruit? I did not! The author is very creative in putting fruits one is not familiar with. Jack Fruit? Dragon fruit? Ugli fruit? Vanilla beans really caught me off guard. My kids liked sounding out the alpabet.

Four stars. My son LOVES this book, and there is not a whole lot cuter than hearing him say things like elderberry, kumquat, or jack fruit. I mean really.

Lots of fun! Colorful, creative and educational. One quibble: some of the letters are hard to read because they are so stylized so it might not be the best choice for little ones trying to identify the ABCs.

I appreciate board books with bright colors, the ability to keep the text simple for really little ones or add more by reading it all, and new vocabulary. This book has all those things.

Similar to the Vegetable Alphabet book, this Mrs Peanuckle's book is bright, colourful, very informative, and can be enjoyed by both young kids and adults. 23-month old little-AJ loves fruits, so he naturally prefers this book compared to the vegetable book. He has so much fun pointing out and shouting the name of the fruits. Bananas and grapes are his ultimate favourite amongst all.

I love all those short information and fun facts about the fruits. Avocado grew on tree, so it is a fruit! Figs a

Mrs. Peanuckle. Mrs. Peanuckle’s Fruit Alphabet, BOARD BOOK. Rodale Kids, 2017. $7.99.

Just as with her previous alphabet book with a vegetable theme, this book focuses instead on fruits and combines the alphabet with facts about each fruit illustrated. It’s a wonderful combination of bright illustrations and fruit facts, as well as a good mix of little known and more famous fruits.

PRE-K- ESSENTIAL. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian

Each letter of this book corresponds to one or more fruits - many of which are unusual. The pages also include facts about the fruits with very stylized text and illustrations. It is a fun book, but perhaps not for the babies that the board book format would suggest. Older preschool-age children would enjoy the facts more than little ones who will barely even recognize the fruits.

Dynamic way to sneak in some new vocab.

This book is so fun to read!!! I love the art & the style. It’s a great way to learn about different fruits, even as an adult I learned some things! I want to read all her books now.

The book is just the right size for small hands and the illustrations are wonderful. I like that some of the fruit had a little mustache now and again.

This is a board book that can grow with your child! It is full of facts about the fruit that stand for its letter. These facts could be helpful for children who are hesitant to try something new. :)

An ABC board book about different fruits of the alphabet. But don't be expecting apple. Some of these are really off-the-wall fruits! ...more

Cute board book. I will be giving this to CJ for Christmas. Maybe learning about fruits will spark his interest in eating them as a child.

Great board book! We read this a lot! Wish there were only one fruit per letter though.
