There is a growing concern in the parenting world that our children are becoming detached from the knowledge where their food really comes from. With some studies claiming that high percentages of children have no clue where food comes from other than their grocery store, this book is a great start to counter this lack of knowledge. Harvest is perfect for little toddler hands, the flaps are very study and can take some wear and tear. The colors are very bright and visually appealing, and the real life pictures of tractors are sure to thrill little ones.
But there are also plenty of learning opportunities in the text, children start learning where vegetables come from, where wheat comes from and what is made from wheat, like their cereal and bread. Each page shows where the food grows, and what machine is harvesting it.Then it ends with showing children that the farmer harvests the food from the farm and brings it all to them!
