Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6-Bananas, pineapples, grapes, berries, and melons are among the fruits included here. An introduction describes the process of photosynthesis and the domestication of plants, and categorizes the plants we eat as having seeds, fruits, or bulbs. A labeled diagram of the life cycle of a flowering plant (germination, pollination, and fertilization) completes this section. Chapters on individual fruits are set up in an identical format. Taxonomic names are given, as well as fascinating facts about growing/processing procedures and history. Vibrant, labeled cross-section illustrations, stunning color photos, and boxed sections-"It's a Fact!" and "To Your Health"- provide informative tidbits while "Dig In" offers wonderful recipes (fried plantains, cranberry nut bread, melon-berry fruit cup, etc.). The attractive layout and inclusion of unique historical quotes throughout add up to a lively, informative presentation. A welcome update to Elizabeth Cooper's Sweet and Delicious (Children's, 1973; o.p.).
