Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Melasi
Crunchy, orange carrots! This vegetable grows underground. But how does it do that? A farmer plants the tiny carrot seeds in deep, lose soil during the cooler weather. Within three weeks, green stems and lacy leaves appear through the soil, but the carrots continue to grow down, long and straight. The part of the carrot that gets eaten is really the root. In two to three months, the head of the carrot appears through the soil. That's when they're ready to be pulled from the ground. The carrots that are not picked and stay underground grow tiny white flowers that produce seeds for the next year. Other vegetables that grow underground are radishes, beets, and parsnips. The author did a great job of using pictures and words in these easy-to-read sentences, making this book a fun read. It will be an interesting book for children and parents to read together. The child can study the pictures, while the parent reads, or they can take turns reading and looking at the pictures. It's a great way to show children the wonders of eating root vegetables. The colorful pictures are large and take up the page. Reviewer: Beverly Melasi
