Book review: Time for Cranberries, by Lisa H. Detlefsen, illustrated by Jed Henry

Detlefsen, Lisa H.  Time for Cranberries.  Illustrated by Jed Henry.  Roaring Brook Press,  2015.  $17.99.  ISBN 9781626720985.  32p.  Ages 3 – 7.  Q8P8

Detlefsen Time for CranberriesA great book for learning what it takes to grow and harvest cranberries!  The setting is Wisconsin, but still useful information for Oregon folks who have their own local cranberry farms.  Colorful pictures display the labor (and hazards) the family endures to grow and harvest the berries. The story wraps up with the family enjoying the “fruits” of their labor – Cranberry Pie for Thanksgiving!  The book has two cranberry recipes (Cranberry Sauce and Cranberry Pie) and a glossary at the end of the book.  Lots of new farming terms!
