From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K Excellent photographs and a wonderfully direct text present a vari ety of plants to show characteristics of flowers, fruits, and seeds and the cycle of one into another. Each captioned color photograph succinctly illustrates the text it accompanies. The brief textone or two sentences per page omits a discussion of pollination and seed development, thus limiting itself to young children. This fine book, pro fusely illustrated, speaks clearly if not eloquently. It is the elementary version of Anne Ophelia Dowden's From Flow er to Fruit (Crowell, 1984). Catherine Wood, Shelburne Museum, Vt.

From Publishers Weekly:

Photographs of plants and trees present an array of flowers, fruits and finally seeds; the text makes the point that the function of flowers is to produce fruit and that of fruit, to protect seeds, from which plants grow. Wexler's full-color photographs are lush and varied, and from them readers may gain an appreciation for the richness and bounty of the natural world. His text is, in contrast, lackluster and repetitive; in addition, it erroneously labels as a "vegetable plant" a photograph of tomatoes, which are, botanically, a fruit. Ages 4-8.
