Summary

Summary

Discover how to eat your colors in this bold, artful concept book about the world of unusual fruits and vegetables! With a combination of unusual foods and a kaleidescope of colors, this concept book shows that not all foods have to look the same way. A banana can be red, broccoli can be purple, and cherries can be yellow and still taste just as delicious.

Booklist Review

Carrots are ORANGE. They are also PURPLE, opens this original concept book that illustrates colors using photos of fruits and vegetables. The next double-page spread says, Look what else can be PURPLE! and it shows 13 more purple foods as individual photos set against a white background. Tiny words beside each image name the specific fruit or vegetable. Setting up the pattern for the remainder of the book, the next pages point out that plums are purple but they are also RED, leading into a spread that features foods such as an Ozark Beauty strawberry, a Bing cherry, and an Adirondack Red potato. In striving for simplicity, concept books can be a bit dull, but Bass surprises her audience with the unpredictability of reality, backing up her statements with beautiful photos. This well-designed title steps away from the narrow view that apples are red and steps into the seemingly infinite range of colors and varieties in the world.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2014 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-Bass presents a "rainbow of edible colors" in this attractive introduction to colors and grown food. Each two-page spread follows the same format: a photo of a familiar fruit or vegetable is presented, followed by its more exotic counterpart. For instance, Bass informs readers that "Carrots are ORANGE. They are also PURPLE" and includes a photo of a deep purple carrot. Stating, "Look what else can be PURPLE!" she then goes on to provide images of purple corn, a black velvet apricot, blue podded peas, and more. The book contains examples of red, green, yellow, blue, and black, and readers will enjoy lush, attractive images of a red watermelon, a red Dacca banana, a green Gage plum, a Mexican lime, a yellow Amarillo watermelon, Anne yellow raspberries, Russian Blue potatoes, and many more. Other titles with similar themes or style include Bruce McMillan's Growing Colors (HarperCollins, 1988) and Lois Ehlert's Eating the Alphabet (Houghton Harcourt, 1989). This well-designed book is ideal as an independent reader or as an addition to storytimes focusing on colors or food.-Roxanne Burg, Orange County Public Library, CA (c) Copyright 2014.
