5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Yana V. Rodgers on August 15, 2008
Format: Hardcover
With its rich economics lessons, this delightful story for young readers describes the path of an orange from its growth in an orchard to its final destination in the hands of child. The book's clear text and vivid illustrations clearly communicate the various steps along this journey, including the work by farm workers to pick the orange, the farmer's delivery of the orange to a warehouse, a truck's delivery of the orange to a grocery store, and the child's purchase and enjoyment of the orange. These lessons about natural resources, interdependence, and markets are highlighted with the idea (through the title, text, and illustrations) that the child can enjoy this ripe, juicy orange in the middle of winter. This book is ideal for teachers, parents, and volunteers who are seeking enjoyable children's books for younger readers with substantive content in economics and social studies.

A delightful way to take the reader through the journey from farm to mouth - a beautiful connection through seasons, across continents that fosters an appreciation for the origin of our food. Excellent for my young TK students when studying food, harvest, transportation, or seasons.

A wonderful book for pre-k through third grade to help children understand the relationship between climate and wants and needs. Teach reading, science, and social studies with a delightful story.

Format: Hardcover
The author goes into much detail explaining all that went into bringing the life into this orange. Then spends just as much time describing it's slow death for the enjoyment of a few upper-middle class kids who would be just as happy eating yellow snow in January. After the author describes the wretched condition of the migrant workers who spend all day, for years on end, out in the hot summer sun, starting the slow process of death for these oranges, the end of the book beautifully describes purchase of the aforementioned fruit, much like a slave, by a child. Then it is sliced and divided amongst children who are apparently more wealthy and well off than the workers that performed all the work earlier in the book. Off season fruit is a great luxury and this book describes what sacrifice is required to get it to the lucky few children that are at the top of the monetary class scale and allowed to divide it's life force throughout their group.

But children do love this book and the illustrations. So it's not all bad.
