I Like Fruit!
Me gusta la fruta!
By Jen Mott & Molly Keighley

Strawberry (fresa)
When I hold the strawberry in my hand, I try to count all the tiny seeds I can see with my eyes.

What do you see?
Pineapple (piña)
When I put the pineapple in my mouth, my tongue tastes its sourness. But as my teeth continue to chew it, I taste its sweetness!

What do you taste?
Apple (manzana)
When I put the shiny apple into my mouth and bite it with my teeth, my ears hear the loud crunch noise it makes.
What do you hear?

Orange (naranja)
When my nose first smells the orange in my hand, I smell nothing. As I peel away the skin, my nose is filled with the juicy smell of citrus.

What do you smell?
Peach (melocotón)
When I hold the peach in my hand, my fingers can feel its fuzzy, soft skin. I take a bite, and touch the inside of the peach. It is slimy and squishy!

What do you feel?
I like fruit!
