Apples & Oranges

Apples & Oranges: going bananas with pairs by Sara Pinto
Illustrated by Sara Pinto
Published by Bloomsbury Children's Books

     What do apples and oranges have in common? If you said they are both fruits, guess again.  What about a cupcake and an ice-cream? They're both desserts? nope.  In Apples & Oranges, Sara Pinto surprises the reader at each page turn by coming up with unexpected and hilarious answers to the match ups.  My favorite is How are trousers and underpants alike? With illustrations that will cause as much joy as the text itself, the answer becomes They both don't make good hats. Of course!
     Apples & Oranges will keep the young ones coming up with their own answers and offers an open ended question to keep the conversation going. How are you and I alike? We both don't...
