  This book was written so that parents, who were fortunate or unfortunate, which ever the case may be, to have moved away from their homeland and raised a family, can take a trip back home as they reminisce about their favorite fruits and vegetables with their children and grandchildren, while they teach them the alphabets.
  Enjoy, with love!

  •     This book is very useful for those who want to learn or get to know about the Caribbean fruits and their vegetables. It is a very good book to share with kids especially if that kid has been race in a country where these fruits and vegetables are not known.

  •     As someone who grew in Europe it was an educational read. I was able to learn about the fruits and veggies I have never heard of. We didn't grow up eating none of the food which were presented in this book (maybe exept of bananas). I think I could experiment in my kitchen a little more and expose my daughter to different tastes. We are vegetarians so having more veggie choices is very useful.

  •     The ABCs of Caribbean Fruits and Vegetables is an unusual, softcover ABC picturebook - each letter of the alphabet is demonstrated for young readers with a full-color picture of a corresponding fruit or vegetable that can be found in the Caribbean. Additional black-and-white simple outlines of each fruit or vegetable encourage drawing, coloring, or tracing. The text is filled with amazing information about each food item. "The mutant-apple looking Quince is usually yellow, with a pronounced bump at the end. It bruises very easily. It is tart and occasionally eaten out of hand with salt but it can be made into jam, jelly or Quince pudding." In addition to being educational, The ABCs of Caribbean Fruits and Vegetables is a great way to help young people take interest in fresh and healthy foods!

  •     I knew some of the fruits and vegetables presented in this book, but with other name. Some of them where new for me and very interesting. I would like to have the chance to experience them.
