Seed, Soil, Sun: Earth's Recipe for Food

by

Seed, Soil, Sun: Earth's Recipe for Food Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Seed, Soil, Sun. With these simple ingredients, nature creates our food. Once again, noted author Cris Peterson brings both wonder and clarity to the subject of agriculture, celebrating the cycle of growth, harvest, and renewal. Using the corn plant as an example, she takes the reader through the story of germination and growth of a tiny corn seed into a giant plant reaching high into the air, with roots extending over six feet into the ground. This American Farm Bureau Foundation's Agriculture Book of the Year also discusses the make-up of soil and the amazing creatures who live there—from microscopic one-celled bacteria to moles, amoebas, and earthworms. David Lundquist's stunning photographs bring an immediacy and vibrancy to the seemingly miraculous process.

Review:

"For kids who think food comes from the supermarket, this direct guide to how plants grow should set them straight: 'When you eat lettuce, you are eating a leaf. When you eat celery, you are eating a stem.' Peterson explains how most food comes from seeds, which--thanks to nutrients from soil and energy from the sun--grow into fruits and vegetables. Lundquist's color photographs (many of which feature children getting in on the action of planting, harvesting, and eating) may have kids considering an attempt at growing their own food. Ages 4 — 7. (Nov.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
