Sophie loves visiting her aunt and uncle in the countryside + learning all about the fruits that grow in their garden ~ strawberries, redcurrants + cranberries. She even discovers how a tall cherry tree grows from a small seed, + how bees help blossoms become fruit.
She is sad when her family moves south but starts to enjoy her new garden with its different plants and trees. Soon Sophie makes friends with her neighbours who help her harvest melons, grapes, figs, oranges + pomegranates.
At school, Sophie + her classmates learn about tropical fruits + nuts from all over the world ~ bananas, coconuts, cashews, pineapples + many more. This superb companion to Gerda Muller's beloved How Does My Garden Grow? is full of beautiful + fascinatingly detailed + illustrations.
The simple story, both informative + entertaining, is perfect for teaching children where food comes from + for inspiring interest in the wonderful diversity of the world around us.
