Editorial Reviews for this title:
Did you hear the one about the banana? Why did the banana go out with the prune? Because it couldn't get a date. Introducing the delicious and delectable, the brilliant and beloved, the one and only . . . banana! BANANAS! is the quintessential book about bananas. Sure, you know bananas are good for you, but how good exactly? Ounce for ounce, a banana is even more nutritious than an apple. If you want to keep the doctor away, try a banana. And there is so much more to learn about bananas. From their early roots in Southeast Asia to their introduction to Americans at the 1876 United States Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia alongside Alexander Graham Bell's new invention, the telephone, bananas have a very auspicious history. Bananas are now shipped (very carefully) all over the world. After reading BANANAS!, you won't think of bananas as just a quick, easy snack anymore.

Describes the growth, distribution, history, and nutritional value of the banana. Includes recipes, poems, and jokes.
