Sink your teeth into the plants that feed the world—flowers, fruits, seeds, and all!
With its simple text and bright, appealing illustrations, this book is perfect for young readers learning about where their food comes from.
Clearly-labeled diagrams show the different parts of plants we use and eat—leaves of spinach and cabbage, the roots of carrot plants, and the wide variety of fruits, such as apples, berries, and tomatoes. Plants Feed Me explores the different types of seeds we eat— beans, nuts, rice, and even how wheat is ground into flour and used to make many other types of food.
Smiling children pick fruits and vegetables, and learn how plants grow from seeds, stretching toward the sky for sun and into the earth for nutrients. This celebration of fruits, vegetables, and more is sure to get kids interested in what's on their plates!

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Plants Feed Me is a quality informational text about plants. The book teaches readers how plants grow, parts of a plant and the different part of a plant we eat. In the classroom: • A read aloud to introduce a plant unit in early elementary classrooms. • Colorful pictures and simple text for emergent readers. • Diagrams with labels, cut-a-ways (inside and underground), captions and detailed illustrations guide readers to read the illustration and introduce text features. • Use the information in the book to create categories for the plants we eat. Adding appropriate reading level informational text to a primary classroom can be difficult. This book is perfect. I can’t wait to share it with our kindergarten and first grade teachers. 5 stars
