Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

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

From Booklist

A cheerful cast of multicultural kids demonstrates how plants are instrumental parts of what we eat in the latest from Rockwell (The Busy Body Book, 2004). Detailed colored-pencil-and-gouache illustrations show plants and the parts we harvest for food—leaves from lettuce and chard plants; roots and tubers from carrot and potato plants; fruits from apple trees, tomato plants, blueberry bushes, and pumpkin vines; seeds from wheat grass and walnut trees; and all kinds of beans from pods of many shapes. Full-page spreads depict children in the garden and on a farm harvesting fruits and vegetables, and helpful cross sections and close-ups reveal plants above and below the ground, with each part clearly labeled and a recognizable image of what that plant looks like once it gets to a grocery store. It’s easy to forget where everyday food comes from, but this gentle, colorful picture book explains, simply and accurately, how food gets from the garden and farm onto dining-room tables. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Sarah Hunter

I bought 2 copies of this book for 2 of my grandsons, ages 3 and 5. They loved the book - great pictures, very informative, easy to understand. The 5-year-old even read it himself, with help. Highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
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
