What Other Kids Are Reading
Pears are sweet and mellow fruits that grow on trees. They come in several colors, including green, yellow, red, and brown.
They're delicious and they have a lot of fiber, vitamin C, and potassium.
Pears are great raw or they can be served cooked, like in desserts or jams. Try some raw pear slices with a piece of gingerbread cake or a slice of Swiss cheese. Tasty!
Pears are very sensitive. What we mean is that if you toss one in your lunchbox, it could get a little bruised and squishy before you get a chance to eat it. But don't let that keep you from packing pears. You can now buy an inexpensive little plastic case for your pear. Then you can pack pears without a problem!
