About this deal

Oliver only eats chips… until Mum finds a way to introduce all the tasty possibilities of fresh fruit. The children enjoyed the book, but I felt that they did not take much for it, and the same feeling was with me as well.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.My first impression of this book was that it would make a great addition to any class teacher introducing various fruit varieties to her young class. I believe it was suitable for this age because of the follow-up activity I observed and carried out where after the story was read, children then went into the kitchen where the book was firstly re-read to them to emphasise the concept that were being taught which was ‘Colours’. Vivian French is the author of over two hundred books, including the wildly popular series Tales from the Five Kingdoms. I did enjoy reading this story but I think for the age I believe it is suitable for, it is far too long so therefore I rate it 3*.

I liked the story about Oliver and his parents and grandparents, and especially appreciated the humor, and I liked the cat.
