This delightful book combines Sophie's story with engaging facts to show children how fruit and nuts grow
Sophie lives in the city and spends her summer in the countryside where she learns all about the fruits that grow there: apples, plums, cherries and all kinds of berries.
When Sophie’s family moves south, where the weather is warmer, she discovers that different plants and trees grow in her new garden. With the help of her friendly neighbours, Sophie harvests melons, grapes, figs, oranges and pomegranates.
At school, Sophie and her classmates learn about tropical fruits and nuts from all over the world -- bananas, coconuts, cashews, pineapples and many more.
This is a wonderful book for children to learn about how fruit grows and where. It combines a charming seasonal story with fascinating facts and beautiful, accurate botanical illustrations. It is a superb companion to Gerda Muller's beloved How Does My Garden Grow?
