About this title
Book by Burns, DianeFrom School Library Journal:
Grade 3-6?Children won't ever think of cranberries in the same way after reading this book. Beginning with a short history of ibimi and their importance to the Algonquin people and Native Americans today, Burns discusses the cranberry's growth cycle and the commercial processes used to produce them. The story of the plant's cycle is told through a visit with two Wisconsin families. Readers see the bogs being planted, the plants blossoming and fruiting, and the harvest, as well as learn about the labor and technology that is necessary to insure that large numbers of plump, deep-crimson berries are produced for the expanding market. The bright, well-chosen, full-color photographs and black-and-white reproductions enhance the clear, informative text. A solid biology lesson as well as a vivid picture of the hard work and planning that goes into producing successful crops in the '90s.?Steve Matthews, Foxcroft School, Middleburg, VA
