Synopsis

"With the beauty of classic still-life painting and the immediacy of the simplest concept book, Lember's hand-tinted photographs show fourteen fruits and where they grow. . . . Without being aware of it, in the most natural way, kids will observe shape, size, color, and relationship in a world that's ordinary and amazing." -- Booklist
