Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara L. Talcroft
Capstone's "Plant Life Cycles" series is intended to provide early readers with access to information about the life cycles of members of the apple and bean families, gymnosperm and angiosperm trees, root vegetables, and flowering plants of North America. The books have a simple text and large color photographs illustrating seeds, sprouts, flowers, fruits, and mature trees or plants. The pictures in all of the books are attractive and illustrative of the text opposite. That said, the photos selected to illustrate stages in the cycles are not always of the same species or variety, which is sometimes disturbing. Appealingly pictured here are textures of delicate green carrot leaves, a filigree of tiny roots on stubby, dirt-speckled taproots, and the lacy whiteness of a field of carrot flowers. Two illustrations compare carrots after sixty days of growing—the first ones pictured being the familiar slim, tapered Daucus carota often seen in groceries, the later ones another cultivar that is fat, lumpy, and ridged. Teachers and parents may want to stress to budding scientists that carrots come in many different varieties called cultivars, since they all derive from the original wild carrots (which were not even orange). Carrot taproots can assume many sizes and shapes; besides orange, colors include white, yellow, red, purple, and maroon. Still, extra-wide pictures make the books useful for science read-alouds, while the brief text should be easily read by primary students with beginning skills. The glossary is helpful; three additional books are suggested for further reading.
