What’s a Banana? & What’s an Apple?
What’s a Banana? and What’s an Apple? by Marilyn Singer, illustrated by Greg Pizzoli (2016)
Who doesn’t love a good food themed storytime? These are very silly rhyming odes to specific fruits—either apples or bananas per the title. Both titles are as much fun to read out loud Sayre’s “Rah Rah Radishes” but a little shorter (smaller trim size too). Both titles present real and imagined uses for each fruit, and will fit right into storytime.
Themes/topics: Fruit, food, eating, health, imagination, funny
Sample text from two spreads:
You can tote it. You can float it. Dress like one for Halloween.
You can grow it. Try to blow it—just pretend that it’s a flute.
