This would be a good book to read during a unit on plants. While reading the book, you can discuss the basic needs for a plant to grow. In this book, it talked about soil to inform students on how to plant carrots. It also discussed seeds as being an important part of growing a plant. Since this book was about growing carrots, it provided great ideas for the teacher and the students to make in the classroom after the class plants the carrots. Some examples are carrot juice, carrot stew, carrot pudding, etc. The teacher can ask the students what they did to help the carrots grow. In addition, the teacher can have the students record their observations of the carrot in their science journal.
