From Flower to Fruit

Written by: Richard and Kathleen Konicek-Moran

From Flower to Fruit will transform curious readers—children and adults—into budding plant scientists. The book draws you in with the twin charms of rich illustrations and an engaging narrative, but this is more than just a pretty storybook. It sparks curiosity about the parts of a flower and the vital roles bees and seeds are to plant reproduction. Six kid-friendly activities and background information for parents and teachers compliment the text. The authors also encourage you to explore several agricultural mysteries!

Book of the Month:

Seedfolks

Written by: Paul Fleischman

*Note: This book is appropriate for ages 10 and up, and may not be suitable for young readers.
A Vietnamese girl plants six lima beans in a Cleveland vacant lot. Looking down on the immigrant-filled neighborhood, a Romanian woman watches suspiciously. A school janitor gets involved, then a Guatemalan family. Then muscle-bound Curtis, trying to win back Lateesha. 16-year-old Maricela. Amir from India. A sense of community sprouts and spreads. Each chapter of Seedfolks is named for a different character and told from his or her point of view. As their garden plots grow, their hearts grow bigger, and their worldview expands. There are still hard times in this rough little neighborhood, but each eggplant and tomato is a little victory worthy of a shared celebration.
