April Pulley Sayre is an award-winning author of more than fifty-five natural history books for children and adults, including Vulture View, illustrated by Steve Jenkins, which won a 2008 Geisel Honor. She is the author-illustrator of Rah, Rah, Radishes!, Go, Go, Grapes!, and Let’s Go Nuts! April and her husband, native plants expert Jeff Sayre, love science and adventure.

“After tributes to veggies (Rah, Rah, Radishes, 2011) and fruit (Go, Go, Grapes, 2012), Sayre delivers another peppery blend of upbeat, celebratory rhymes and photos taken at local grocery shops and farmers markets.
This time, the spotlight’s on seeds…the combination of short, pithy verse and artfully displayed food provides an excellent aid for classroom or family learning. To that end, Sayre (a veteran of school visits) provides an afterword that answers questions about the science and nutrition of seeds, nut allergies, cultural connections through food, and more.
Another cheery, useful overview of real food from a first-rate science writer.”
