If there is any such thing as a "super" plant, that plant is the soybean. Used for an amazing variety of things--plastics, fuel, soap, and medicine--soybeans are also a healthy food source for animals and people.

An informative little book about soybeans, and their historical relevance. I would use this book in a unit on growing things/gardening, and maybe even a mini-unit on soybeans themselves if the opportunity presented itself. Read full review

Very interesting book. Had no idea the soybean was so old and so many people had researched it for so many centuries. I can see many kids using this for reports in science or social studies. Well done and the pictures really help understand the process of growing soybeans. Read full review
