Flowers, Fruits, Seeds

Jerome Wexler, Author Prentice Hall Books $12.95 (31p) ISBN 978-0-13-322397-2
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. (February)
