Sturdy wooden pages and simple pictures make Fruit appealing to babies. Non-toxic graphics and finish make for safe mouthing of corners and drooling on pages. To clean, wipe with damp cloth. The graphics are simple, sharp-edged, and clear, colors vibrant. Among the fruit are apples, bananas, and pears, flavors likely familiar to babies transitioning to solid food. Grapes, strawberries, oranges, pineapple, and watermelon round out the
delicious and nutritious fruits. Angular page design makes opening and turning pages easy. Like its companion books, At the Farm and At the Zoo, Fruit enhances perspective with visual, tactile, and auditory cues and builds fledgling social skills, from basic communication and language development to cooperation and collaboration.
