Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 1—This cohesive collection clumps fruits and vegetables into categories according to their structure. Each title introduces the plant's life cycle with a sequence of labeled, close-up photos. The remaining chapters cover each step in the sequence: planting the seed, growth, harvest, and seed formation. Apples and Blueberries mention pollination and dormancy while Carrots mentions the vegetable's biennial pattern of seed formation. The titles conclude with examples of other fruits and vegetables with the same development pattern. Whimsical covers in jewel tones and well-chosen, full-page and spot photos add to the overall appeal. The small trim size makes these books more appropriate for individual use.
