From the Farm to the Table Almonds

Did you know almonds grow on trees? Thirty-five-year veteran photojournalist Kathy Coatney (specializing in agriculture) introduces second and third-graders to the world of almonds. Children see through photographs and easy-to-read text with Farmer Dan how almonds grow from bloom to harvest and beyond.

The From the Farm to the Table series is designed for second and third grade readers, each book highlighting second grade vocabulary words.

“Book 5 in a series of exceptionally well-written educational reads for second or third grade comprehension. Close-up and interesting photos and information help the reader to understand how almonds grow, how they are harvested and processed for the end user. Just enough information not to overwhelm a young reader yet keeping them engaged. Second grade vocabulary list at the end (underlined throughout the text) as well as resources for creating lesson plans, list of almond industry terms and additional website resources.”

“This is a definite “must have” series on agriculture to learn and enjoy not only for the classroom but for home as well.”
