10.8. Come On, Eat Your Spinach: May is a big month for vegetables and fruit – Carrots and Cauliflower month, Grapefruit and Kiwi Month, National Salad Month, Potatoes and Limes Month, and Sweet Vidalia Onions Month! Read a book with the name of a fruit or vegetable or the word fruit or vegetable in the title, or with a fruit or vegetable on the cover.

For words in the title, singular or plural is fine. The word itself must appear in the title - compound words (i.e. Lemony Snicket) are not allowed.

Not okay:

compound words ( such as Lemony Snicket: The Unauthorized Autobiography

Christina (stinalynne04) Can the name of the fruit or veggie be part of a word, for example Lemony Snicket: The Unauthorized Autobiography?

No, it should be the fruit or vegetable name itself.

I've heard nothing but good things, and it's been on my shelf for awhile now, so I'm looking forward to it.

Joanna (walker) | 434 comments Does the word "fruit" work, or only specific fruits?

I'm thinking of: The Devil's Picnic: Around the World in Pursuit of Forbidden Fruit

apples are fruit, so sure.

Sarah  (sarahelaine) | 67 comments I have a question about Task 10.8 in the Spring Challenge (Come On, Eat Your Vegatables). I realise that this is really going out on a limb, but thought I would ask anyway. Would 'The Witch of Portobello' work for this one? It's almost a mushroom!
