5-Star Review from Readers' Favorite


Sing along with friendly fruit from the Farmers' Market who come in diverse colors, shapes, and sizes. Young children will enjoy exploring what makes these neighbors different, the same, and all so lovable. This hardcover picture book introduces the concepts of unity and diversity through adorable characters and simple, rhyming lyrics. Ideal for children ages 2-5.


"Heartwarming, cheery pictures of jolly singing pears, apples, oranges, grapefruit and plums dance across the pages, inviting a friendly celebration of diversity and joy... Sweet Neighbors Come In All Colors is an 'absofruitly delightful ' song story teaching acceptance of differences and celebration of diversity." —James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review


"Sweet Neighbors Come In All Colors" gives very young children the opportunity to explore early-learning concepts and offers families the chance to discuss ideas like unity and diversity. "Sweet Neighbors Come In All Colors " is an especially and unreservedly recommended addition to family, daycare center, preschool, kindergarten, and community library picture book collections.—Andrea Kay, Midwest Book Review


"A silly and cheerful new picture book with an important message about kindness and inclusion…The book’s celebratory message of acceptance is made accessible to even the youngest of audiences through bright illustrations and thoughtful prose." —Jennifer Miller, review, https://raisethemrighteous.com/2019/03/06/lisa-bleckers-sweet-neighbors-come-in-all-colors/


"Sweet Neighbors Come in All Colors has a great message, so you can feel good about your kids reading it again and again. The characters are a variety of brightly colored happy fruit, and each one is lovable... Its message is timeless, and the illustrations are captivating." —Valerie Mitchell, review, https://mamalikesthis.com/sweet-neighbors/


"Blecker’s book simply and elegantly expands kids’ world of experience about produce while it confirms their innate acceptance of all different kinds of people. Her illustrations are upbeat and happy, and, yes, quite lovable. This is one of those books which will have adults and kids alike smiling along with those sweet neighbors as they read the story and even have a sing-along or two. Sweet Neighbors Come in All Colors is most highly recommended."—Jack Magnus, readersfavorite.com

A very sweet book
If you're looking for a book you can not only read, but SING with your kids, this would be a wise choice! 
Sweet Neighbors celebrates the beauty of unity in diversity between all the different "fruits" of the world ;) A very uplifting children's book with an important message. So fun to read and sing, highly recommend!

Great for the littlest babies
My son loves this awesome book and the companion music! He is only 1, so he has a hard time focusing on books but this one is great because of the bright colors and engaging characters. I like the message of friendship and diversity and the educational nature of the book!

Diversity made simple.
Using beautiful pictures, this book explains the importance of caring for your neighbors no matter what they may look like. The use of different fruits to explain diversity is an innovative method to introduce the concept to children. Another fun feature of the book is the song that is included to sing along with - it is happy and very catchy.
