What a great concept for a story for children that includes an interactive cookbook! The idea is refreshing, fun and creative. The writing flawlessly goes from page to page from the start to the end. I really enjoy the descriptions of the bananas and their different uses in our kitchens. I believe this book will get kids to open their imaginations and see the many possibilities that fruits can have, not only to feed us, but also to entertain us. The story will surface every time they eat a banana for days to come and will become a great conversation piece for friends and family.

The story starts when bananas are cut from their mother tree. The tree parents are so proud of them. From there, it talks about their worthy goal of being sold at the store to become useful and delicious in somebody’s stomach. It also goes into details of many things that happen to bananas when they are not consumed in a timely manner. In between this fun dissertation about the bananas, you will find different recipes for the kids to try at home. They look like scrumptious and mouth-watering creations. While the readers are reading the book, the characters, in this case fruits, are having their own conversations in a setting that reads like a comic book.

The language used in this book is child friendly and the situations are age appropriate. The drawings and color throughout the book are vivid and fun. This book will delight children from 1st – 4th grades, their teachers, and parents.
