In a celebration of growing (and eating) fresh vegetables and fruit, Rockwell’s glossy digital artwork depicts upbeat children plucking apples, picking tomatoes, planting seeds, and watering gardens. A cross-section of a garden bed shows plants like asparagus, onion, parsnip, and beets, their roots fanning down into the soil; other pages focus on fruits (“Pumpkins, peppers, and eggplants are fruits too”) and seeds, including beans, rice, wheat, and walnuts. The basic, declarative sentences and use of repetition—“I eat different parts from different plants. Sometimes I eat the leaves. And sometimes I eat the roots and tubers”—underscore the message suggested by the title. Rockwell treats each vegetable like a treasure; even kids with aversions to veggies may be intrigued. Ages 4–8. (Jan.)

PreS-Gr 2—This helpful book for young readers sheds light on the edible aspects of plants. Through first-person narration, Rockwell covers where plants grow and discusses their different parts (fruits, seeds, stems), explaining which ones we consume. Vivid and detailed gauche and colored-pencil-on-paper illustrations fill each page, and many of the pictures are actually large diagrams with labels and captions that complement the facts described. Though the text is simple and straightforward, it's perfect for developing readers. This book will make a fine addition to libraries that serve children and have a need for materials on this particular subject matter.—Nancy Jo Lambert, Ruth Borchardt Elementary, Plano, TX

This simplest of informational picture books offers a sensible, sunny celebration of the plants—specifically the parts of plants—that we eat. The opening scene shows a boy seated at table surrounded by a rich harvest. He's holding a watermelon rind that mirrors the wide grin he wears, helping to set the good-natured tone of the book. As preschoolers examine the pages, they will learn about the featured fruits and vegetables and how they grew. Warm gouache-and–colored-pencil illustrations first depict a garden where "Plants reach up for the sun. / They grow down in the ground." As the narrator goes on to explain that "I eat different parts from different plants," such as roots, tubers, bulbs, stems, flowers and seeds, youngsters will find labeled images to peruse. The short, declarative sentences are easily digested by the very youngest and will tempt burgeoning readers to test their skills. Best of all, children will surely be inspired to taste some of the produce the next time it appears on their plates. Delicious on its own, and it will pair well with other books about gardens, plants and healthy eating habits. (Informational picture book. 2-5)
