Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-6-- Teachers and students searching for classroom projects will find this resource useful. It tells how to start plants from 11 common foods such as pineapples and beans. No scientific explanations are given, nor directions for continuing care of the plants. Each plant group comes with recipes or activities, such as a recipe for caramel popcorn, sprouting radish and mustard seeds for sandwiches, and apple-head puppets. Only a few bloopers--good luck to readers who grow one stalk of corn in a pot expecting a fertilized ear--mar an otherwise careful and clear text. Unfortunately, the pedestrian layout, tiny type, and utilitarian black-and-white drawings will discourage browsing. For books that are more stimulating, try Eat the Fruit, Plant the Seed (Morrow, 1980; o.p.) by Millicent Selsam and Jerome Wexler's Play with Plants (Morrow, 1978; o.p.). Both include growing plants from foods, excite the curiosity of young scientific minds, please and intrigue readers, or just make them itch to grow plants. --Sharon Levin, University of Vermont, Burlington
