The Life Cycle of a Carrot

By Linda Tagliaferro

As with other books in this series, this early reader book captures the development of a carrot from seed through germination, growth, flower development and pollination and on to seed development. Unfortunately, it mixes wild carrot (Queen Anne's Lace) with domesticated carrot production. It also refers to pulling carrots out of the ground. This is a bit misleading since most carrots need to be dug and pulling would only result in breaking off the foliage in all but the softest of soils. The book includes a glossary, recommended reading list and suggested Internet sites.
