While teaching upper- and lowercase letters to preschoolers, Ehlert introduces fruits and vegetables from around the world. A glossary at the end provides interesting facts about each food.
Little ones are introduced to the letters of the alphabet and a delicious list of fruits and vegetables via colorful and stylized illustrations. Apricot, artichoke, and cherry sit alongside the less commonly known kohlrabi and kumquat. A brief description of each item appears in a glossary at the end of the book.
