Review
(The following is a combined review for From Bulb to Daffodil; From Eye to Potato; From Kernel to Corncob; and From Pit to Peach Tree) Gr 1–2— Large, easy-to-read texts, arranged in blocks with lots of white space around them, describe how these plants grow. Each book begins with a vocabulary preview called "Word Hunt" that introduces seven terms and includes a pronunciation guide and a full-color photograph. While potato seeds are shown on a fingertip to indicate their relative size, the illustration for corn pollen might be confusing because the grains look the same size as the kernels. In Daffodil , the green shoots pushing through the soil are labeled buds ("buhdz"), a rather uncommon usage. Each text describes propagation with clear photographs of bulb cross sections, tubers, corn kernels, and peach pits. A two-page life-cycle illustration summarizes the growth process. These are useful additions that provide well-organized, easy-to-read explanations of plant growth.—Frances E. Millhouser, formerly at Chantilly Regional Library, Fairfax County, VA --Frances E. Millhouser (Reviewed December 1, 2007) (School Library Journal, vol 53, issue 12, p116)
