Great as a board book, to look at with very young kids. The paintings are absolutely beautiful. I always found it a respite from cartoony children’s illustrations when I desperately needed something softer and more complex to enjoy. Older children who are into art will probably appreciate the paperback version because the pictures are bigger and easier to study.

such vibrant beautiful art and i'm in awe of how many fruits and vegetables were included. The back of the book has further backgrounds and information on each produce item depicted. apparently this may also be available as a board book, and i think that format would be great for little ones to handle because it's a hard book to keep out of their mouths! i do wish 'J' had included Jerusalem artichokes because jicama and jalapeno both start with the silent/soft 'J' sound. Still a five star book though!
