An elegant, easy-to-read text and beautiful illustrations describe the parts of plants that humans eat. Labeled diagrams explain how an apple seed can grow into a new plant, reveal how a walnut is contained within its shell, and show how wheat seeds make flour.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Plants Feed Me is a quality informational text about plants. The book teaches readers how plants grow, parts of a plant and the different part of a plant we eat. In the classroom: • A read aloud to introduce a plant unit in early elementary classrooms. • Colorful pictures and simple text for emergent readers. • Diagrams with labels, cut-a-ways (inside and underground), captions and detailed illustrations guide readers to read the illustration and introduce text features. • Use the information in the book to create categories for the plants we eat. Adding appropriate reading level informational text to a primary classroom can be difficult. This book is perfect. I can’t wait to share it with our kindergarten and first grade teachers. 5 stars
