Handa puts seven delicious fruits in a basket to take to her friend, Akeyo: pineapple, mango, guava, passion fruit, avocado, tangerines and banana.But Handa and Akeyo are not the only ones who find it hard to resist delicious, ripe, juicy fruit! When Handa reaches her friends’s hut and lifts off her basket, it’s Handa who gets the biggest surprise.

Handa’s surprise is a fantastic way to introduce children to both fruits  they may not be familiar with: guava, avocado, passion fruit and antelope.  Next time you are in the supermarket why not pick up one or two and make a Handa’s Surprise Fruit Salad?

Most of the animals  in Handa’s Surprise will be instantly recognisable. The antelope might be the exception.

Have fun,

Miss Mernagh 🙂
