The Life and Times of the Peanut

Product Details


Gr 2-5‘A complete history of the peanut that could be used for reports or read for pure pleasure. A multitude of bright watercolor drawings extend the text. The author not only shows where and how a peanut is grown, but also explains how it is harvested and how peanut butter is made. New vocabulary is explained within the context of the lively narrative. Interesting anecdotes about George Washington Carver and Jimmy Carter are included. Statistical facts such as the leading peanut growing states are illustrated with graphs made of peanut symbols. Librarians who may not have purchased a book on this topic since Millicent Selsam's Peanut (Morrow, 1969; o.p.) may want to refresh their collections with this outstanding choice.‘Blair Christolon, Prince William Library, Manassas, VA
