Juliana's Bananas: Where Do Your Bananas Come From?

by Ruth Walton
£8.99   hardback  New Internationalist Publications Ltd (2014)

Juliana An educational resource to help children of 5 and up explore Fairtrade through the eyes of children of banana farmers in the Windward Islands in Caribbean.
Juliana grows bananas in her garden while her children, Billy and Bertha, are at school. There are challenges along the way - a hurricane, followed by a disease which affects the plants, but finally a good crop can be harvested. We follow the bananas from the field to the washing and packing shed, and the transport by truck and ship to the UK.
The narrative is based on real life situations and illustrated with colourful collages made from painted textures and photographs, as well as photos of the landscapes and agriculture, facts and maps.
In the back of the book are some delicious banana recipes and more information about how Fairtrade has helped to pay for some of the things in the book - such as the school bus and the science equipment Billy and Bertha use at school. We also get to meet real life banana workers along the supply chain from the Caribbean to our supermarkets.
