Fruit: A Caribbean Counting Poem


a book about succulent fruit and a cunning girl written in Jamaican patois. my girl has a narrow range of foods that she likes so she wanted to assure me on every page (after she counted the fruit) that she would NOT be eating those. we did have fun putting our hands over our tummy and pantomiming how big it would grow if we ate all of the fruits that the girl in the story did. so we were not surprised at all at that her gluttony resulted in a tummy-ache.
