ALA Booklist
for use with an adult. The reader will find this attractive book useful for reports or, as the Take Along Guide series title implies, as a nature guide. Each page is devoted to one plant and its fruit. After a brief introduction to berries, nuts, and seeds as the fruit of a plant, Burns looks at specific fruit, one to a page, including raspberries, acorns, pecans, juniper berries, cattails, and thistle blossoms. The format is crisp, and the writing clear; each page features lovely watercolor pictures of the fruit and the plant or tree it comes from and information about what it looks like, where to find it, and who eats it. Interesting activities such as planting a seed garden and making berry watercolors round out a very nice treatment. (Reviewed February 15, 1997)
Horn Book
Berries, Nuts, and Seeds highlights eight to ten examples of each, and Wildflowers includes twenty-eight examples, such as white trillium and chicory. The brief texts explain what the plant looks like, where to find it, and what eats it. In addition to the accurate illustrations, a map of each plant's geographic range would have been helpful. Related activities are included. Bib., ind.
