Apples and Oranges: Going Bananas with Pairs – Book Review

Word association takes on a whole new level in Sara Pinto’s picture book. At the beginning, the reader is immediately faced with the question, “How are an apple and an orange alike?” When the page is turned, the obvious answer isn’t given; instead the reader will enjoy seeing that the answer is, “They both don’t wear glasses.”

Some other pairs Pinto puts together to get your little one thinking: spoon and fork; rabbit and armadillo; starfish and octopus; and mug and teacup.

My personal favorite: trousers and underpants…”they both don’t make good hats.”

The artwork is creative and silly. Your child will love seeing a cupcake scuba dive and a book going out for sushi. It’s so fun to read!
