From Flower to Fruit
will transform curious readers—children and
adults—into budding botanists. The book draws you in with the twin charms of rich illustrations and an engaging narrative.
But this is more than just a pretty storybook. It sparks curiosity about the parts of a flower and the vital roles of bees and seeds in plant reproduction.
Six kid-friendly activities and background information for parents and teachers complement the text. The authors also encourage you to explore several mysteries:
- How does a seed change as it sprouts into a plant?
- Why do scientists call a tomato a fruit?
- Can some fruits really fly, float, and stick to your socks?
Richard Konicek-Moran and Kathleen Konicek-Moran are a husband-and-wife team of naturalists. Richard is the author of the popular NSTA Press series Everyday Science Mysteries
, and Kathleen has had her artwork published in a number of online and print publications. Both believe in advancing the importance of botany in children’s education. After reading this book, no child will ever look at a flower or fruit in the same way again—and no grown-up will, either!
