The Berry Book
By Gail Gibbons
Gail Gibbons has developed another excellent book on an agricultural topic. This time she weaves her storytelling magic about all sorts of berries. Her discussion of how berries grow in the wild and how they are cultivated in fields and gardens domestically includes the impact of climate. The author describes the uses of edible berries and even gives directions on how to grow strawberries. The colorfully illustrated book includes recipes for berry jams, pies and ice creams.
