How Does My Fruit Grow?
Follow ponytailed Sophie as she helps collect fruit in various gardens in France. Learn all about citrus, berries, nuts, apples, plums, olives, and so many other delectable products that grow in orchards. In this delightfully illustrated and informative book, the reader learns where and how these nourishing treats are formed and used. The seeds, flowers, and history of the plants are described. The pages are matched with descriptive text blending details of the plant on one side with enchanting drawings engagingly showing the children harvesting the fruit on the facing page. The pages are filled with engrossing drawings of the diverse assortment of fruits that are ready to be picked, sampled, and prepared. A school project involves students in a study of tropical fruits, and the reader then learns about such exotics as the lychee, guava, papaya, banana, mango, and more. The artwork accompanying this comprehensive story about the fruit we eat and how the plant grows and how it appears is stunning, the information provided is engrossing, and the story will familiarize children with the account of how their fruit is born and develops. It grows from seed to plant with flowers that mature into delectable, tasty products with the help of insects.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
