Based on a song by Dick Grover and now available nationwide in bookstores and online, the AbsoFRUITly delightful “Sweet Neighbors Come in All Colors,” features an illustrious group of friendly fruit from the Farmers’ Market, which come in all shapes, sizes and colors, telling a sweet story about celebrating the diversity in all of us.

“Sweet neighbors come in all textures:

Soft, smooth, bumpy, and rough.

Our outsides may look different,

But we all are loveable stuff.

Yes, we all are lovable stuff!”

 

Diversity and unity are “hot” topics and “Sweet Neighbors Come in All Colors” is designed for parents to help their children ages 2-5 enjoy exploring what makes “neighbors” different, the same and lovable, all through the delightful colorful, medley of fantastic fruit seen in grocery stores all over the country. And, “Sweet Neighbors” is a great way to introduce early learners to colors of the rainbow!
