    • This book is a 2017 notable poetry book. I found this book at the Geneva Public Library. This book would be best suited for Elementary students and could be used in the classroom to introduce poetry to your students. You could even have your students write their own poetry book on a similar topic, such as picnic food. In this story a gaggle of woodland friends go to a farmer’s market and describe each of the foods they try using poetry. The figurative language and amazing imagery will spark th [...]


    • Fresh Delicious is a compilation of poems about fruits and vegetables at the farmer’s market. Each page is an independent poem about a fruit or a vegetable. The poems are written in short verses and describe the items using creative ways. The words activate children’s imagination and help them see fruits and vegetables in a fresh, different way. The illustrations on each page is vibrant and detailed. They portray different animals walking around the farmer’s market and purchasing fruits an [...]


    • 1. Read the title Fresh Delicious: Poems from the Farmers’ Market. Ask students: Have any of you been to a Farmer’s Market before? What types of things did you see there? Did you buy anything? Why did you go to a Farmer’s Market rather than a store? Reread the title. Ask students: Look at the cover of this story. What do you think will be the topic of some poems we are about to read? What are some topics we will not be seeing in this book? 2. I chose two opening moves to use for this book [...]


    • 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.Moriuchi’s acrylic paint and collage illustrations help children visualize Latha [...]


    • This book is a 2017 notable poetry book. It is a collection of poems about food found at a farmer's market. This is a fun book creating poetry about food to awaken the senses and think about food in a different way. The illustrations add in making the book funny and helping children imagine the food as it is described in the poem. I think young children would really enjoy these poems, or anyone who loves food, like me! It also has recipes in the back using the foods in the poems. I would recomme [...]


    • 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 also really like how the back matter includes recipes from the farmer's market. This adds a fun interactive level to the boo [...]


    • I really enjoyed these poems. I thought that they were very cute and thought that students would really enjoy them as well.


    • 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.


    • These poems take a look at the beauty, color and freshness of well known produce and highlight not only their observable qualities but also their quirky attributes and unique flavors and uses. Similes are not a rarity in poetry books for young readers, metaphors on the other hand, sometimes prove harder to find; not in this collection of poems worthy of being shared with young readers and stand vendors alike, as part of a field trip to the local's farmers' market. The illusttrations by Mique Mor [...]


    • 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. 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 pa [...]


    • 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)? The metaphors delight, and I imagine that Irene's words will inspire you to create [...]


    • This is a very cute book full of poems about fruits and vegetables you would find at a farmers market. I enjoyed reading all of the poems about my favorite fruits and veggies. What resonated with me the most was how they made healthy food look adorable and created poems that make healthy food look appealing to children. As I read this book, I started to crave some of the different fruits and veggies in it. I was drawn to the illustrations because they were so playful and adorable. I loved how th [...]


    • Review at: unleashingreaders/?p=1I love poetry anthologies that make poetry accessible yet is still well written, and Fresh Delicious definitely fits this bill. Latham has done a very nice job at making each food’s poems unique and fit the topic. I love that it also brings personality to vegetables. As a mom to a son that doesn’t eat them, maybe seeing them in this light will make him want to try them again. Many of the poems also include figurative elements that can be taught through the po [...]


    • 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. Definitely need one in the classroom library to be picked up over and over again. Just a note – some childre [...]


    • 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!


    • Short poems about the delicious fruits and vegetables that can be found at the farmer's market. Recipes using the fruits and vegetables celebrated in text follow the poetry.Poems are perfect for sharing with the very youngest ears and would be a nice addition to storytime. PreK-2.


    • A fresh take on a farm market experience using a variety of poetic forms. Two of my favorites: BASILa bouquetof mintygreenbutterflywingsPEACHWhen yourbaby-fuzzcheekmeets myhopeful nose,the worldexplodeswith sweetness.


    • 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.


    • I love going to the Farmers Market and the verses here make we want to go right now. And what a surprise at the end of the book! Recipes!


    • Recipes at the end! Just like veggies, some of these poems were my absolute favorites, and some of these poems I would only read as a "thank you bite". Loved the illustrations.




    • These farmers' market poems ARE fresh and delicious! They are brief and vivid and often surprising! this is a terrific collection to celebrate spring or summer with.


    • Fun and satisfying. A collection of fresh delicious poems to tempt any foodie, gardener, or market enthusiast.


    • Fun short poems inspired by the lovely produce at a farmer's market. I loved both the poetry AND the delightful illustrations. This is a terrific book for preschool and classroom use.



    • Latham, I Moriuchi, M. (illustrator). (2016). Fresh Delicious. Honesdale, PA: Wordsong.Latham gives poetry to foods at the farmers market. Each food has an animal to talk about it. It is colorful and fun and a good way to encourage children to eat healthy food, talking about them in a positive way. The poetry is very bright and fun, as are the images.
