Sherry Strawberry's Clubhouse by Donna E. Hart is the story of Sherry Strawberry and her fruit friends, including Molly Mango and Gabbie Grape, who decide to go to her clubhouse to play. When they get there, however, the ladder is missing and they can't get into it. They each try their own methods, including jumping on a trampoline, trying to climb the tree, and asking the birds for help to get inside. Eventually they work together and stand on each other's shoulders to look around and find the ladder. Will they succeed so that they can spend the rest of the day in the clubhouse, playing together?

Donna E. Hart's Sherry Strawberry's Clubhouse is a fun, colorful book with some great illustrations. They are simple but bright and cheerful. I think kids will enjoy the book and the story. There is a message in the tale that it is important to work together, and if you do you can get a job done sooner, and that sometimes the simplest methods are the best. Each fruit friend comes up with a different plan to get into the clubhouse, but each one fails. Finally Sherry's idea works. A lot of children's books are told in rhyme but I think this makes it easier for a child to remember the story. If they read it over and over, they will soon know it off by heart. I think this will do well in the market for young kids.
