Sometimes it feels as though the makers of baby board books just went to some clipart database or knock-off Disney catalog for illustrations. Not so here!

I love the creative collage style illustrations in this book, so it is a pleasure for me to read -- which is good, because my daughter (17 mo) likes it so well that we read it many times every day! She loves the cutouts with textured pieces. She has learned to say her colors reading this book. Though there aren't many words, it's fun to play the "where is the raspberry?" game "Can you show me an apple?" Identifying things this way is new to my daughter, so it's a fun game and good learning.

This book would be entirely appropriate to read with even the youngest baby. Though infants tend to fixate on images of faces, as soon as your baby is old enough to like texture and color, he will like this book.

For an inconsequential nitpick: I wish that the fruit at the end (fruit salad picture) didn't have a somehow pit-less peach and plum! It doesn't make me like the book less, I just wish that it didn't show the flesh going all the way to the center. Makes the peach pieces look more like persimmon. Oh well! That really doesn't matter when all the pictures have been so delightfully put together. Even on the glossy board-book page, the textures and variations in the original collage work come through. Such a fun exercise in illustration and modern design!

I just bought the vegetable one and expect to like it just as well.

We received "I like fruit" at our baby shower and it was a hit from the beginning! She didn't start touching the textures until 5 or 6 months, and then around 8 months she figured out how to turn the pages and it became even more fun! Thankfully these are high quality board books perfect for little hands, and have held up better than several others (as we have read them over and over...and over again!). We now own "I like vegetables" and "I like bugs" as well. I love the art and textures in all the books. I also love how they are short and sweet, but can become easy topics for learning conversations (ie. colors, numbers, etc.). Because I speak another language, I often read the first time in English and the second time in the other language (it's easy to do because the books are not too wordy). I would recommend any in the series as they are a big hit at our house, but "I like fruit" is my favorite, and "I like bugs" is her favorite.

"I like fruit" focuses on colors: red, green, yellow, orange, blue and purple, with all the fruit included on the last page.

I bought this board book for my 21 month old- he loves it! He carries it around everywhere since we got it and likes pointing out the different fruit. The illustrations are adorable, and it is a great tool for teaching colors and fruits!

Maybe my kiddo just isn't old enough yet to engage with this book by doing things like pointing to and identifying the fruits, but there's not a lot of substance to this book. It's really beautiful, but there's not much to read, and certainly no story. Just the fruits, grouped by color. I could see this being great when teaching different fruits to baby, or different colors, or even counting, but for my seven month old, this book was sort of a bust.

My son has enjoyed pointing out the fruit in this book since he was about 6 months old and is really into it now (12 mos). It is very simple but pretty - every time he points at a square with a fruit in it, we say the name and he likes the predictability. The touchy part is fun but not overly distracting. The yellow/pear page is his favorite. We'll be getting the "I love toys" volume too.

My son is three months old and loves this book, its simple bright colors and texts are fun for him to look at and it will be good as he gets older to talk about colors!

My 1 yr old son loves this book. It uses fruits to teach children colors. The "touch and feel" description might be confusing to parents familiar with the touch and feel book series which offer very imaginative pages with yarn, feathers, fur, etc. This is a much softer and gentler version with fabrics and paper textures. This is calming and alluring, not catchy and bright. We bought others in her series!

This book starts out well but tapers off on the last two pages. At first the book dedicates two pages to each color. The left page has four blocks, one with the solid color and its name and the other three blocks with a fruit of that color. The right page has one large, textured image of a fruit of the same color. The textures are not exceptional (bumps, smooth plastic, felt, more bumps, and holes punched with shiny color underneath). The red, green, yellow, and orange pages follow the basic format and are a simple way to see the color and name some fruits - not too busy but still with a variety to look at in the designs. The book seems to be cut short, though, as the last two pages mash the colors blue and purple together on one side and have a fruit bowl of all the colors on the other side, losing the flow of the book and seeming like a rushed ending. I like the simple, consistent flow of the book up until the last two pages, and the textures are decent although not extraordinarily interesting. Overall, this is a nice book, and the construction is solid. There are no more than four words to a page (basically one color and three fruit names on one side and just the textured picture on the other side), so this book is nice for multilingual families to use to talk about colors and fruits. The artistic way the pages are put together reminds me a little of a patchwork quilt. I took one star off for lack of variety in the textures and one star off for the mish-mash on the last pages, but otherwise this is a nice board book for teaching colors and fruits.
