First Peas to the Table

By Susan Grigsby

A school class holds a contest to see who can grow the first peas of the season as they study Thomas Jefferson and his contributions to agriculture. The life cycle of the pea is illustrated and tips, such as soaking seed before planting, are shared. The differences between fruits and vegetables are also presented. This is a good book for children who would like to grow their own food at home. Winner of the 2016 AFBFA Book of the Year award!
