Eating The Alphabet: Fruits & Vegetables from A to Z

A vibrant and sturdy word book featuring fruits and vegetables from around the world from Caldecott Honor–winning author-illustrator Lois Ehlert featuring upper- and lowercase letters for preschoolers just learning language.

Apple to Zucchini,
come take a look.
Start eating your way
through this alphabet book.


Each turn of the page reveals a mouth-watering arrangement of foods: Indian corn, jalapeno, jicama, kumquat, kiwifruit and kohlrabi. Lois Ehlert's lively watercolors paired with bold easy-to-read type make for a highly appealing and accessible book for parents and children to devour. At the end of the book, Ehlert provides a detailed glossary that includes pronunciation, botanical information, the origin and history of the particular plant and occasional mythological references, with a small watercolor picture to remind the reader of what the plant looks like.

LOIS EHLERT has created many picture books, including Caldecott Honor–winning Color Zoo, Leaf Man, Pie in the Sky, In My World, Growing Vegetable Soup, Planting a Rainbow, and the best-selling Waiting for Wings. She lives in Wisconsin.
