Format: Paperback
"Fruits I Love" fills a major gap in children's books. We've got ones that praise cars and animals, but this one celebrates kids' natural love of fruits. Who needs candy when you've got papaya? Seriously. As an aunt and frequent host of raw food potluck members' children, I love having this book on hand. The pictures are fun, and the message enthusiastic. Children will finally get some "good marketing" for nature's delicious, beautiful and nutritious "candy." I love how the book makes fruit seem cool instead of a lunchbox disappointment. Anyone who wants to encourage healthy eating and a happy relationship with real food will love having this book for their children. The front cover features a little fruit faery hugging a green apple. Bright colors, fun images, and creative instructions on how to eat the more exotic fruits: perfect!

This is a book we have been waiting for for a long time. Children who read this will really turn on to the joy of eating
fresh, beautiful fruit! The children at our school all love to read this book. In fact its a good beginning reader for
young children. This books supports parents in teaching their children good eating habits!

My grandchildren, ages 8 and 11, loved the book, "Fruits I Love" They said, "It's great. It helps me learn all the fruits I don't know. It's fun to find out which words rhyme". I covered the rhyming words and each of them took turns guessing what the rhyming word would be. They loved the pictures.

Our non-profit, Optimum Health Solution, [...], has just launched an after-school program, "Real Kids, Real Food" in Somerville, MA for 35 inner-city children from the 12 elementary schools and 2 middle schools, ages 5 to 14. Thankfully, Victoria sent us a gift of two copies of the book so we could read it to both the younger and the older children's groups at the same time. The lesson of the day when we read it was "Eating a Rainbow", teaching them the nutritional value of the different colored fruits. This book was a perfect fit. I was inspired by these students to play the rhyming game with my grandchildren. Reading to the group, I just paused before the rhyming word and all the children called out the rhyming word. They loved doing that and loved the illustrations and thought the book was a lot of fun. They said that the book made them want to eat lots of different kinds of fruit. As one boy yelled out at the end, " I love fruit".

Format: Paperback
Fruits I Love is more of an ABC- type book, with lovely childlike pictures of fruits that are deliciously tempting. This book also uses rhymes to deliver the message of loving fruits. Here is an example:

Pomegranate---jewelry box
but without any locks!
Full of sweet and juicy seeds,
They look like shiny ruby beads.

The book includes grapes, star fruit, cherries, berries, pineapples, bananas, watermelon, apricots, plum, pears, peach, nectarines, apple, mango, papaya, figs, kiwi, oranges, and the above-mentioned pomegranate.

I especially love the illustrations by Katya Korobkina since they look as though a child drew and painted them.

This makes a lovely gift for any young child because the message of eating fruit for health is enticing and inviting.

Victoria's book Fruits I Love is a great way to introduce children to a variety of fruits. The book's colorful pictures are visually inviting to children, and what child doesn't enjoy a rhyming book! I appreciate the fact that in reading this book to a child, you are doing more than just reading words or looking at pictures, but you are actually making fruit very appealing to them. After reading this book with your children, I suggest you purchase each of the fruits depicted in the book and have your children actually examine, smell, taste, find the seeds, and rate the fruits according to which they like best. Great book to begin a love for fruits!

After reading this book your children will be begging you to take them to the local market for fresh fruit. Beautifully illustrated with inviting colors and happy fairy characters this story will brighten any child's day. Children will love learning about star fruit stars and the jewels in the pomegranate. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to the store for fresh fruit!

As I flip through the pages its more then just a story book. It opens kids minds to the color and identity of each fruit. Katya does an amazing job with the illustration which truly lights the imagination of the reader and allows for the listeners to clearly understand how delicious fruits are. This book is the fake food to fruit food converter.

I have both of the children's books written by Victoria. Here is a quick, short praise of Fruits I Love as sent to Victoria herself:

I have both of your books (had pre-ordered them) and my 21-month old daughter absolutely loves "Fruits I Love". The illustrations are adorable as are the poems for the fruits. Thank you for these delicious books.
