How Foods Grow – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

Cashew nuts are only part of the cashew plant, and peanuts grow underground? Readers will learn about these facts and more in this excellent introduction to how foods grow. The series focuses on New World crops that many children in the Americas will be familiar with, such as cocoa beans and pineapples. Engaging color photographs and connected video resources of the titular foods in various stages of growth, from seed to plate, work to reduce the objectification of foodstuffs. The inclusion of Indigenous growing methods, terminology, and recognition of pre-contact agricultural work is excellent in this series, especially in the Wild Rice book that looks at Anishinaabe harvesting. VERDICT Each title in this series works to teach young readers that things we eat don’t start on grocery store shelves, but are connected to the world around us with their own unique growth cycles.
