Review

Two fruit flies debate eating the last peach of the season in this short picture book. There are several reasons for and against eating this peach: it looks juicy, but it could be rotten inside; it’s the most lovely peach, but it’s the last one of the season; it can be shared, but sharing it may leave the fruit flies hungrier than ever. This book may serve as an early example of decision-making and considering how one’s actions have consequences. Its use of alternating voices may also teach partnership reading skills. The illustrations consist of French newspaper clippings, offering a unique backdrop to this short tale. Optional, Anna Jennings, Centennial Library Intern, Cedarville University
