When teaching children about the different parts of a plant and how we use these for a food source, the book "Tops and Bottoms" by Janet Stevens would be a good book to read in conjunction with introducing this concept. The children will not only enjoy the story but the pictures offer a wonderful opportunity to look at a variety of vegetables and what parts of the plant we eat. Click on the title of the story for more information about the book.
