This book has so much information in it that I would probably save this for an upper level reader, maybe around third or forth grade. It definitely lets the children know how vegetables are produced and who produces them. It lets them know that there are eight different vegetable groups: leaf, bulb, flower bud, root, tuber, stem, fruit, and seed. It also gives examples of each. I personally like this book for children because it gives information about rare vegetables that most kid won't know about. For example is says, "More than half of the world's soybeans are grown in the United States". I thought that was really cool because I learned something new too! I would recommend this book! ( )
