Kid Konnection: Who Eats Orange?

Every Saturday, I host a feature called Kid Konnection -- a regular weekend feature about anything related to children's books. This week I'm going to share with you a cute book that teaches little ones about food and colors!

Summary: Who eats orange—a chicken? A bunny? A bear? Find out in this unique exploration of colors and animals’ favorite foods.

Animals eat a rainbow of different foods. Gorillas in the mountains eat green, octopi in the ocean eat red, and toucans in the canopy eat purple. Young animal enthusiasts will love digging into this lively journey around the world to explore the colorful diets of many animals, from the familiar to the exotic. -- Beach Lane Books

WHO EATS ORANGE? by Dianne White and illustrated by Robin Page is fun book that allows children to learn about animals and the colorful foods they eat. Bunnies, chickens, goats and pigs all eat orange foods, while other animals like gorillas and giraffes eat green foods. Of course, animals of all sorts eat foods of many different colors... and WHO EATS ORANGE? takes you around the world to see these animals and their diets.

I thought WHO EATS ORANGE? was a beautiful book that will definitely appeal to parents and kids alike. The story is fun and allows kids to participate in identifying colors and animals while reading the book. They can also learn about what particular foods are favorites of the different animals. And I should mention that there were some animals (and food) in this book that might be new to children, or at the very least, ones they don't often see.

I absolutely loved the illustrations in WHO EATS ORANGE? The colors in the book are vivid and fun to look at. The animals are also gorgeous and their fur, hides, feather, etc. almost appear textured. See the fur on the gorilla? It's so cool!
The text is very simple and it should be able to hold the attention of even the most active toddlers. However, this book will also appeal to older children because the back of it has a resource section which delves into animals, their habitats and their diets.

WHO EATS ORANGE? is a beautiful book that also teaches kids about nature. Highly recommended!

Thanks to the Blue Slip Media for providing a review copy of this book.
