Book Synopsis

Winner at the 2015 International Latino Book Awards. Carlota and Clara, two sisters who will discover the wonders of eating fruit by playing and laughing, while talking about family, friendship, peace or diversity.

In a little town in the south of Spain, next to the sea, lived two little girls named Carlota and Clara. It was a lovely place, surrounded by magical trees which grew wonderful fruits with thousands of different colors and aromas. The two sisters decided to play a game: every day of the week they would choose a color, think of a fruit in the same color, make up a short story about it, and then eat it for their afternoon snack.

The first years of a child's life are essential when it comes to developing healthy eating habits. As we all know, fruit is an essential part of their diet, but can it be fun too?

¡Qué divertido es comer fruta! is a truly delicious tale, full of bright colors to help parents and educators show children how to enjoy a type of food that's full of energy and poetry.

Ganador en los International Latino Book Awards de 2015. Carlota y Clara son dos hermanas que, entre juegos y risas, descubrirán las maravillas de comer fruta y reflexionarán sobre la familia, la amistad, la paz o la diversidad.

En un pueblito del sur de España bañado por el mar, vivían dos niñas: Carlota y Clara. Era un lugar maravilloso, rodeado de árboles mágicos en los que crecían frutas de mil colores y perfumes. Las dos hermanas decidieron jugar a un juego: cada día de la semana elegirían un color, pensarían en una fruta de esa tonalidad, inventarían una breve historia con ella y por la tarde la tomarían para merendar.

Los primeros años de un niño son fundamentales para crear unos hábitos de vida saludables. La fruta, como sabemos, es un elemento imprescindible en su dieta, pero ¿puede también ser divertida?

¡Qué divertido es comer fruta! es un cuento de lo más apetecible: una historia repleta de bellos colores en la que padres y educadores encontrarán el mejor camino para conseguir que los niños disfruten con este alimento tan lleno de poesía y vitalidad.

Review Quotes

"A positive message about healthy food (...). Young listeners will appreciate the energetic and imaginative pictures, brimming with frolicking children of many ethnicities, as they consider how they might use their imaginations to help make the world a better place. It will lend itself well to classroom extension activities." --Kirkus Reviews

"A short story full of colorful and beautiful illustrations recommended to teach children to eat healthy. It will help parents and educators so that the little ones enjoy eating fruits. Fun and Fruit's author has already taken the story of Charlotte and Claire and their games with fruits to hospitals, schools and has even organized a cooking workshop with fruits." --RTVE
