This is a beautifully poetic book that teaches children in a whimsical way about the life cycle of a plant, specially a dandelion. The rhyming words help children connect the word concepts to the illustrations. I like the perspective of this book about dandelions, as many children would have heard their parents discussing them and might be familiar with them in a negative way. This book puts a fresh spin on a subject that many children would be able to relate to, or be familiar with.

This is a great book to use to incorporate literacy into a science unit about plants or the life cycle of plants in a fun, non-textbook type of way. This book can be used as an introduction to the life cycle of plants. It allows teachers to introduce the unit words in a creative way before delving into the specifics on a more scientific level. I love the mixture of science and poetry and rhyming. I think this is a great way to help children make meaning of the world around them. ( )

Dandelions, stars in the grass by Mia Posada is a non-fiction picture book about a common flower, or weed, that most children in this east-coast area have come across. The story is told in rhyming fashion about the life of a dandelion from its yellow flower and "fluffy tufts of white" to its seedlings flying through the air before resting and rooting. The authors use of playful wording combined with the colorful illustrations make for a fun read, one that you can almost forget is informational. The back of the book also contains further history on the dandelion or Taraxacum officinale, as well as further scientific research ideas children can use to find out more about this interesting plant. This book would make a great addition to any early elementary school classroom.

I really enjoyed this story and the beautiful illustrations that accompany it. What a great way to teach children about a plant that is so often discarded by society. I especially like how it teaches us to see beauty in all the little things on this planet.
The additional facts and recipe on dandelions were an added bonus. This is a great book for all ages!
