Marvelous Monday

The Fruits We Eat by Gail Gibbons is another win for this awesome author/illustrator.  This informational text lays out how fruits are good for our health. It takes us through he different kinds of fruits, like from bushes, trees, plants, vines, and farms. 
The art is rendered in watercolors and I think ink.  I've always loved her straight forward artwork that shows how things grow or work.  She has this uncanny knack for making a scientific process simple and understandable but she doesn't 'dumb' it down for children. 
Teachers, here is a link to her webpage for a teacher's guide. It doesn't include the fruit book yet, but it includes a lot of her other informational texts.
This title will be used with Preschoolers to Third grade.
