Review
(The following is a combined review for Coconut; Cranberry; Pumpkin; Oak Tree; Sunflower; Apple; and ) PreS-Gr 3 — A clean design, simple sentences, and large, well-labeled photos provide attractive introductions to familiar plants. Starting with the plant's most recognizable feature—whether seed, fruit, or flower—each volume answers the question "How did it get that way?" As readers follow the life cycle, they learn how seeds develop into shoots, grow stems and leaves, and flower and produce fruits. Although each book stands alone, the set offers many opportunities for students to compare and contrast different aspects, such as size of seeds, the role of bees in pollination, and uses of various parts of plants for food. Close-up photographs, such as one depicting the tiny flowers in the middle of a sunflower, encourage close observation of the familiar. VERDICT First-purchase considerations for most collections. --Kathy Piehl (Reviewed November 1, 2015) (School Library Journal, vol 61, issue 11, p10)
