Fruits

Author: Valerie Bloom
Illustrator: David Axtell
Publisher: Macmillan

A wryly amusing Caribbean counting poem enumerated in Jamaican Creole. The warm vibrant pictures extend the story of the young narrator and her voracious appetite for the many delicious fruits that careless adults leave around for her to sample as well as share with her little sister. A good introduction to Valerie Bloom's poetry.
