Is It Any Good?

It's hard to imagine that a book using only five words -- four of which are in the title -- could be so inviting. But as the author plays with words, phrasing, and illustrations, you'll be drawn in.

Unless eating fruit can be called a plot, you won't find one here. It's the softly brushed watercolor illustrations that really stand out. The bear is suitably comfy and kind; the fruit looks ripe from the fruit bowl at a friendly grocery. Lots of white space adds a soothing quality to the wordplay, making it a good choice for settling-down times.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
