Cook with Books this month features The Parrot Tico Tango by Anna Witte. We read the colorful story about Tico Tango who flies through the rainforest snatching bright, yummy fruits from his friends. The book lends itself to great discussion about asking for things and asking for forgiveness.
After reading the book, we started on our Fruit Tree Snack. If your child is able, he can help wash and prepare the fruit by chopping it into small pieces.
For each fruit tree, you will need:
thick slice of cored pineapple
handful of toothpicks
3 other fruits (we used strawberries, kiwi, and mango), diced
To assemble the trees, simply place the banana half in the pineapple.
Using toothpicks, add fruits all over.
So simple. So healthy!
