It All Starts with a Seed... (Hardcover)
By: Emily Bone, Sally Elford (Illustrator)
This book explains how almost everything we eat grows from just a small seed - from how a seed sprouts and how fruits grow from flowers by pollination, to how different plants produce vegetables, fruits, leaves, roots and grains. Tropical fruits, cocoa beans and Asian vegetables are covered, as well as rice, wheat, corn, potatoes and more.
Illustrations: Full colour throughout
