One day Oliver goes to his grandparents’ house – where they grow their own vegetables -to the disgust of Oliver, who insists ‘I don’t eat vegetables! The botanical definition of a fruit is a structure formed by a pollinated flower that contains the seeds. I remember them picking gooseberries in my in-laws' garden; it didn't persuade them to eat the gooseberry crumble! In layman’s terminology, a fruit is something that comes from a plant that is sweet and usually eaten as a dessert or snack.

The answer is to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables every day not the same thing over and over again just like Oliver! We have an array of resources and activities that go wonderfully in conjunction with the brilliant storybook.My grandchildren (aged 3 and 4) love this little book as a bedtime story and I bought a further copy as a birthday present for another 4 year old who absolutely loves vegetables and helps her grandparents to grow them. Whether it does or not, I enjoyed the humor in it, and enjoy Oliver and his grandfather, and also his grandmother and his parents, and definitely the dog. My 7 year old boy got this book for doing his summer project book review and to learn about green vegetables!

I was asked to read this book by children aged 3 - 4, who found the story very funny due to Oliver only liking chips to eat. Neither my children nor any others I know would have been fooled by Grandad's ploys - they would probably have enjoyed looking for them, but their mouths would still have remained firmly clamped shut in the face of spinach, peas, etc.This popular picture book tells the story of fussy eater Oliver, who will not eat anything but chips.

This is a great book to link with maths as it rehearses the days of the week and the illustrations offer many opportunities for counting and working out how many vegetables. This is the third Oliver book apparently, although the first one I have read, not that it matters with these books.
