The Biography of Bananas by Rachel Eagen

Spread the love

Stars: *****

This is children’s non-fiction about where bananas come from and how they are harvested. Part of a How Did That Get Here? Series. I want to read the rest of them.

It has beautiful colour photos and information on Where bananas originated, how they travelled to North America, where and how they are grown, diseases that threaten them, banana plants and the environment, banana companies, field to supermarket, different varitites of bananas and the future. It’s a great book for students doing studies or essays on bananas.

Ages 10 and up
