“Dialogic Plants! Peanuts” is a rhyming science picture book, complete with dialogic prompts, that presents how peanuts actually grow. While many kids know about peanuts and peanut butter, not many people are aware of how peanuts grow. This story traces the peanut plant growing from a peanut seed to flowering to the pegs that extend into the ground and eventually yield peanuts. The activities at the end of the book include a presentation, movement, and a song. “Dialogic Plants! Peanuts” is rich in promoting language arts via dialogic prompts that may include vocabulary expansion, letter recognition, word opposites, rhyming patterns, recall, reading comprehension, counting, and more.
