Everyone loves the sweet taste of a ripe banana. Most of us get this popular fruit at a local market. But have you ever wondered where bananas actually come from?
Meet Manolo. He and his family live in Honduras on a banana plantation. Manolo’s father and other workers care for the young plants and harvest the green bananas. Then other people get the fruit ready to ship top distant markets.
In this book you can follow bananas on their journey from Manolo to Margie. She lives in the United States and likes bananas as much as you do!
