Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Emily Griffin
Unfold the pages of this board book to discover what different shaped seeds grow to become. Descriptive questions on the left spread ask children to guess what food each seed corresponds to "Itsy, bitsy, golden kernel, what till you become?" The right-side spread shows an image of the seeds with a further message, "with lots of sunshine, my leaves grow tall...." The page can then be unfolded revealing a large, vertical photograph of the plant in the ground. Then unfold out to see a large photograph of a child holding the food, "It's time for sweet yellow corn!" The fruits and vegetables taken through this pattern are yellow corn, carrots, apples, grapes, and pumpkins. The final page is a full spread of all the children from earlier pages holding their fruit or vegetable. This is a colorful board book that serves as a basic introduction to the life cycle of fruits and vegetables for young children, suitable for the targeted age group. There is also potential for encouraging conversation between an adult and child about how food grows, and developing language as the book uses a variety of adjectives, comparative language, and prepositions (under the dirt, up springs a vine, grows down, juicy, crisp, ripe) to describe the process.

Meet the Author

Jean McElroy is a children's book author originally from the South who has written many books for Little Simon. She lives in New York City with her husband.

Tilde studied photography at the Rhode Island School of Design, but her journey in photography began much earlier. As a toddler of a professional photographer, she was often stagged in tutus or with a finger in the nose. Growing older, she helped lug equipment to places like Tijuana, where her father was basing a children’s book. Then in her teens she completed several photojournalism assignments abroad of her own, through children’s organizations such as Compassion and other orphan relief agencies. My First Ballet Class is her third children’s book to photograph. Her own experiences as a child model have taught her that you can’t capture the magic of childhood unless the subjects are free to truly be themselves.
