The Dessert Garden

This book by Diane de Anda starts out with kids wishing that the family's visit to a dessert garden will find doughnuts and cupcakes growing on trees.

But, instead, its a farm where lots of fruit is grown, and the family learns how to make some delicious desserts from the fruit.

They happily go home with lots of fresh fruit to enjoy.

The book includes some Spanish language with translations as well as educating young readers about how healthy foods can be sweet and delicious.

Anyone who reads this book will finish it with a hunger for fresh fruits and the yummy treats that can be made from them.

Eugen Ruble's illustrations will encourage that hunger even more.
