From Peanut to Peanut Butter
Written by Robin Nelson
From Peanut to Peanut Butter is a new title in the Lerner’s Start to Finish Second Series aimed at readers of the second grade reading level. From Peanut to Peanut Butter joins other fun titles such as: From Foal to Horse, From Flower to Honey, and From Kernel to Corn, among others.
Like other titles in this series, readers explore a photographic journey accompanied by short, concise text that describes nature’s cycle from start to finish on a particular topic of interest. In From Peanut to Peanut Butter, second grade readers learn how farmers grow and harvest peanuts, how machines sort and shell them in preparation for the baking process where the shelled peanuts are mixed with honey and sugar to finally form peanut butter that is then filled into jars. The journey concludes with a photograph of children spreading peanut butter on celery for a tasty snack at school. At the back of each Start to Finish Second Series title, readers will find a glossary of words related to the subject, as well as an index to refer back to key areas of interest.
Every second grade reading list should include books from Lerner’s Start to Finish Second Series. Imagine the wonderings that will fill the minds of children as they learn the key role nature plays in our world!
