Realistic, but painterly, the berries in this book come to life with lush colors and simple descriptors, like the reddish-purple “sour cranberries.”

Listing 10 different berries (with two kinds of grapes, which are technically berries), this board book is a great introduction to colors, numbers, tasting notes and nature’s candy.
