    The subtitle is: Poems from the Farmers' Market. These mostly free verse and very brief poems celebrating fruits, vegetables, eggs, and honey are full of imagery, word pictures, simile and metaphor.

    Fresh Delicious contains twenty-one poems about shopping for fruits and vegetables at a farmers’ market. The series opens when the market opens. You choose your basket—called sway until you fill it—and then visit the various stalls holding the fruits and vegetables. For each item, Latham devised often-humorous poems filled with marvelously descriptive words. Her writing will resonate with young and old alike.

A crocodile, a pig, and a bear scoot along the ocean floor in their green cucumber submarine just ahead of the submerged dog, giraffe, and elephant. Pirates open a treasure chest and find a “trove of farmer’s gold.” Not quite a dozen, but enough for two hungry swashbucklers. Moriuchi’s use of recognizable animals helps children understand and appreciate Latham’s poetry.

    In the book "Fresh Delicious," these vivid poems all surround the theme of a farmer's market. Some examples are seen in blueberries to "flavored-filled fireworks" and lettuce like "butter and pepper and salt."

Some examples are seen in blueberries to "flavored-filled fireworks" and lettuce like "butter and pepper and salt." The imagery and comparisons are seen with the useful ways that poetic form to describe common fruits and vegetables. The same can be said of the artwork with it looking like cut-out and being a simple way to communicate these poems. This shows how poetry can be about anything and being "fresh" and having the farmers' market when it comes to the way the place is important. In a simple idea of a farmers' market, it shows that poetry can be written about anything or anyone so there is a way to use different words to describe common things. This poetry book is cute in its nature and relates to the theme of the farmers' market. Some are more artistic than others, but also some are more imaginative when describing different fruits and vegetables. This light-hearted poetry is fun and includes the recipes for these fruits or vegetables. On an interactive level, I think that students may understand poetry in a different way and to have fun while reading them.

    This really cute poetry book includes a variety of poems related to a trip to the farmers' market. Some are more imaginative than others, such as the cucumbers poem, which was probably my favorite one. The animals painted in the illustrations were my favorite part of the book, because they were absolutely adorable, and paired perfectly with the fun, light hearted poetry.

    I don't really like poetry (I appreciate poetry, but I don't particularly care for it) but that's no reason to keep my kid from trying out poems. And we go to the farmers' market often enough that he was able to catch on. He liked it, and I liked it. Maybe I need to read more kids poetry...

    The poems and pictures are fun, making this a good picture book about the farmers market. I don't think my kids would have liked it, but they were allergic to poetry.

An excellent starting point to write your own poetry on your favorite farmers' market or produce aisle finds!

    Poems describe the various produce available at the farmers' market accompanied by acrylic and collage illustrations. Families of various types of animals are buying and selling all sorts of fruits and vegetables. Each page features something different from tomatoes to watermelon.

Families of various types of animals are buying and selling all sorts of fruits and vegetables. Each page features something different from tomatoes to watermelon. Whimsy is woven throughout the collection in a way that is sure to have readers laughing. For instance, a hippo and giraffe dressed as pirates are examining a treasure chest full of farm-fresh eggs, while on another page animals peek out of portholes in cucumber submarines. The description of okra as "mouse-sized swords" with "fuzzy sheaths" will surely produce chuckles. And the first poem welcoming everyone to the market and the last poem describing the closing of the day frame out the whole collection nicely. The pairing of text and illustrations works perfectly together to bring the imagery of the words to life. It may even tempt some young readers to give a few of the vegetables a try out of curiosity. Teachers will find it an entertaining way to introduce poetry or descriptive writing to elementary-age students. Similes, metaphors, onomatopoeia all appear within the book. I must warn you that the animals having such fun spitting watermelon seeds may encourage kids to do the same. I received a book from the publisher for review purposes.

    The twenty-one poems in this latest book by Irene mirror the title itself; they are "fresh" and "delicious". I become very excited when spring arrives and I know that our farmers' markets will soon open. I assume you get excited too, but when you go, did you know you might meet "a fleet of green submarines" (cucumbers), " a "mountain of mice-sized swords" (okra) or "rows upon rows/of tiny noses" (corn on the cob)?

I become very excited when spring arrives and I know that our farmers' markets will soon open. I assume you get excited too, but when you go, did you know you might meet "a fleet of green submarines" (cucumbers), " a "mountain of mice-sized swords" (okra) or "rows upon rows/of tiny noses" (corn on the cob)? The metaphors delight, and I imagine that Irene's words will inspire you to create your own comparisons. In the poem Wild honey, Irene writes that it makes "our tongues/buzz/with pleasure." And, corn grows to the side on stalks so tall, as if it's "listening/to the/sun". Each poem opens the senses to new ideas about the fruits and vegetables found at farmers' markets. Not only mouth-watering to imagine through the words, the illustrations show off the food and the animals at the market in the happiest of ways. There is also a surprise at the back. After the delightful stroll through the market, Irene shares recipes that take advantage of market fare, just right for kids to help with the cooking.

I could use this book in my classroom when focusing on certain fruits and veggies and get the children excited about eating home grown foods.

    The art is very basic but it fits very well that way. The poetry is simple and the topics are simple like “Tomato, Corn, etc.” and the illustration pairs very well. There are even recipes in the back about what to do with farmers market finds. Does the collection have a theme? (all cat poems, science poems etc) Yes, the collection all has to do with poems from the farmers market. Some are really short and some are lengthy. All have little animals and food involved.

This book is appropriate for age k-2nd as it is simple words and poetry. I would use this in the classroom if I wanted to start a poetry unit and show how the author used a theme of "Fruits." Then maybe have students do a poetry activity with animals in the same way this book does fruits. This could be a great beginning introduction to poetry.

    Review at: http://www.unleashingreaders.com/?p=1... I love poetry anthologies that make poetry accessible yet is still well written, and Fresh Delicious definitely fits this bill.

    Each poem is fresh and delicious in its own way. In these playful poems, figurative language abounds but with new comparisons and nuances – basil – “a bouquet of minty green butterfly wings.” Each poem (and partner illustration) is a treasure to be read aloud by a classroom teacher and then reread with a partner and then discussed and then even used as a mentor text for writing.

Most of the book, though, is just about fresh food.

    Just in time for summer fruit and vegetable season, the poems will make your mouth water and you'll start looking around for the closest farmers' market. Short, simple poems tell the pleasures of so many yummy items: cucumbers, blueberries, peaches, tomatoes, corn, onions, and so much more. The collage illustrations are fantastic!

    The illustrations are very clever and inventive. Some of the metaphors seemed more fitting than others (the air throbs with recipes?) I really enjoyed the idea of corn ears listening to the sun vs thinking the kernels were like rows of noses.
