#blogbookaday: That Fruit Is Mine!

26 Jun

That Fruit Is Mine.jpgSummary:  “When five fruit-loving elephants spot a scrumptious hard-to-reach fruit high up in a tree, it’s a race to see who can claim it first! But after one too many fumbles, the elephants begin to lose their cool, and the highly coveted fruit is whisked away by the teeny-tiniest of all jungle creatures—mice! The elephants soon realize they have a lot to learn from this cooperative little bunch.” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: Five elephants deep in the heart of the jungle LOVE fruit! So when they come across a very, tall new tree with delicious looking fruit, they all want it for themselves. Each tries to reach it, but fails. Meanwhile, a small group of mice work together to get a piece of fruit to share. The elephants learn that cooperation and working together will help them all get some fruit to eat.

Personal Reaction: This was a fun little story about cooperation and teamwork – I loved how each elephant had a different plan for getting the fruit and all failed miserably as those little mice just kept working to get up to the top of the tree. The illustrations are so fun with bright colors and adorable elephants in different sizes and colors. A great story for little ones about the importance of teamwork and asking for help when you need it!

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!
