This is an early reader book with short statement sentences in a large font. While the content is minimal this would be a very good book for a teacher to use to begin to teach reading for content. The content and pictures could be used to begin to teach about the life cycle and seasons in science. What is particularly nice about this book is that the photographs and text depict how the fruit, vegetables or grain are grown, show the plant as it is either growing or ripe, describe and the harvest process. The strawberry section has an adorable picture of a small boy peaking under the leaves of the strawberry plant searching for the ripe berry. The photographs enhance the text and depict modern agriculture including apples being picked from dwarf trees.
