How Does My Fruit Grow? (Hardcover)
Children will love learning where our fruit comes from in this unique picture book which combines a seasonal story with facts and botanical illustrations.
Sophie lives in the city and spends her summer in the countryside where she learns all about the fruits that grow there: apples, plums, cherries and all kinds of berries. When her family moves south, where the weather is warmer, Sophie discovers that different plants and trees grow in her new garden - melons, grapes, figs and pomegranates - and at school, Sophie learns about tropical fruit and nuts from all over the world.
Real gardening tips, fact boxes and child-friendly diagrams accompany Sophie's story to provide children with an engaging introduction to where our food comes from, in this beautiful companion to How Does My Garden Grow?
