How Does Our Food Grow?
Fruits and vegetables all taste great,
but how did they end up on your plate?
The fresh and colorful foods you know
came from farms—that’s where they grow!
Some grow underground and some hang from trees.
Can you find them all? Let’s look and see!
Every fruit, vegetable, grain, and legume has its own story: Where do they grow? How do they taste? And how do they impact our bodies and the world around us? In cooperation with Kitchen Connection, an organization committed to improving our food system through education, this colorful picture book introduces readers to the concepts of biodiversity, reducing food waste, and proper growing conditions for different crops in simple, accessible language. With cool facts and challenges throughout, fun rhyming verse, and charming illustrations, How Does Our Food Grow? tells the stories of more than a dozen of your favorite fresh foods. Knowing that our food choices make a difference in our health and the health of our planet empowers us to choose wisely. The more we know, the better we grow.
