HOW DO APPLES GROW? by Betsy Maestro


by Betsy Maestro & illustrated by Giulio Maestro

Pub Date: Jan. 30th, 1992
ISBN: 0-06-020055-3
Publisher: HarperCollins

A straightforward, carefully detailed presentation of how ``fruit comes from flowers,'' from winter's snow-covered buds through pollination and growth to ripening and harvest. Like the text, the illustrations are admirably clear and attractive, including the larger-than-life depiction of the parts of the flower at different stages. An excellent contribution to the solidly useful ``Let's-Read-and-Find-Out-Science'' series. (Nonfiction/Picture book. 4-9)
