From Pit to Peach Tree
By Ellen Weiss
This book is unique in that it explains peach production from a peach pit. Each of the books in this series by the same author begins with vocabulary words and photographs depicting the meaning of the words. It identifies the term in bold letters and instructs the reader to look for the word in the text in its bold format. As a result this is a great vocabulary builder and reading for content book. Each page has three to five sentences and the facing page has an excellent photograph with a caption. The content covers how peaches are grown and harvested. Unfortunately, the book does not depict grafting and that is a major flaw in this book. The book ends with the peach life cycle and a glossary.
