The Life of a Potato

This charming and informative picture book follows a boy and his family through the process of growing and harvesting potatoes. In The Life of a Potato, the young reader is taken step-by-step through a plant's growth cycle. The beautiful drawings show readers where their food comes from. This book is a great companion to lessons on the life cycle of plants, farming, harvesting, and use of machines.
