Plants Feed Me (2014)
This informational picture book is a wonderful way to introduce children to vegetables and fruits. Unless they are gardening themselves, children (and often grown-ups as well) find themselves several steps removed from the contents of their salads. Where does all that green stuff come from? What part of the plant are we eating? Are potatoes roots or tubers? What about carrots, parsnips and beets? We have all heard about tomatoes being fruits, but what about pumpkins, peppers and eggplants? This book is for anyone who has ever wondered (or is wondering now) where exactly did that salad come from?
