Have you ever wondered where the delightful citrus fruit came from when it’s winter? Some individuals may have delicious fruit year round, but many rely on the crops from the country and world. An Orange in January describes how a delicious orange arrived at your store and into your hand. The book begins from the start with an orange blossom, bee pollination, nourishment from sunshine and rain, being picked into baskets, loaded onto trucks, delivered to a grocery store, and finally when a young child picks the perfect orange. The child packs the orange for lunch and shares orange segments with friends in the January snow. I thought An Orange in January was a delightful book that informs readers about how oranges grow and where they come from with vivid colors. It will make you want to eat a juicy orange.

      It was an informative book. I actually was interested in the book, because it had January in the title. 🙂 Thanks for your comment.
