Product Description

Review

A fantastic story (Early Years Educator)

A wonderfully humorous book with delightful illustrations both adults and children will enjoy (My Weekly)

A wonderfully colourful book... a simple, beautifully illustrated story with an important healthy eating message! (Child Education)

The straightforward text is personalised with simple dialogue that should make reading aloud fun, and Bartlett's sturdy, unbordered double-page spread paintings, in a style so unaffected that it resembles children's own artwork, are a rainbow of fruit colors - strawberry, red, lemon, yellow, lime green, and more. Great for lap sharing or use with small groups. (Booklist (1998))

A friendly, round-headed cast with pin-dot blue eyes and broad smilles introduce the tasty possibilities of fresh fruit withour ever dropping the vaguest hint of (shh!) nutrition, and the luscious, sunshiny palette of Bartlett's acrylic paintings will set the taste buds tingling. How about this juicy selection just before snack time? (Bull Cent Child Books (1998))

Book Description

This is a wonderful book, my own children love it and my year 2 class adored it. We used it during a topic on food. The previous week we had read Oliver's vegetables. The illustrations are bright and lively and the text perfect for young children to engage with.

Great book for early years. Made up a story sack to go with it with some fruit and a wooden chopping fruit game. Oliver's Milkshake is worth buying as a complimentary story. We also have Handas Surprise as that has a fruit element.

This set of books are fantastic - especially the bright and cheerful illustrations and the overall visual effect of the book. it's a book that makes you want to read it before you begin and glad you did read it once you finish.

I bought this to read to my reception class as we were doing a theme on fruit. It was really good as a follow-up to Oliver's vegetables. We went on to make our own fruit salad and talk abolut our favourite fruits. I would recommend this to any teacher who is doing a theme on fruit.

This was bought (along with Oliver's Vegetables) for 4 year old twin Grandsons. They love it, practically know it off by heart now! The illustrations are gorgeous, very cheerful and colourful. Highly recommended

Bought all 3 of Oliver's books - vegetables, fruit salad and milk shake. Simple stories that have themes throughout such as ending with laughter, Oliver not liking things. As a teacher of Y1 they proved to be a great resource for story writing, poetry writing, art work,maths (weighing vegetables, graphs), healthy eating and living and growing topics. Lots of cooking too. All round great cross curricular resource.
Lovely illiustrations too.
Would recommend highly for this age group.

This is part of a series about a little boy called Oliver and his preconceptions of fruit and vegetables. It made a good intro to our planned topic of making a fruit salad and opened up some good comments from our preschool group. Nice bright pictures and opportunities to name and count fruit on some pages. Nice little book.
