While looking for books, I rediscovered An Orange in January by Dianna Hutts Aston. I heard about this book from Katied at Creative Literacy and was surprised to not find it on her blog. It's a perfect book for winter reading. The readers follow the journey of an orange from orange blossom trees to the end of its' journey a child's lunchbox. The journey includes a little bit of information about the growing process. It includes information about how the orange travels to the grocery store. The illustrations done by Julie Maren are colorful, bright, and show movement in acrylic paint. This book is perfect for teaching economic concepts to elementary students. It was included in a bibliography for my first article at Choice Literacy. That article is available to the public, Teaching Economics Through Children's Literature, enjoy!
