This informative book teaches children how one small seed can grow into a large sunflower plant. It provides many detailed facts that help the young read gain the ability to grow a sunflower of their own if they choose to do so. ( )

Sunflower by Miela Ford is an appropriate book for students in pre-kindergarten through first grade. The book isn't as informative as the other books I've read about planting sunflowers. However, it's great for children to learn about the process of growing a sunflower as well as participate in an activity that requires them to grow their own sunflower and record the progress. ( )

A girl has a sunflower seed, and she plants it. The sunflower seed begins to grow and she takes care of it. Once the plant is big, there is a big yellow flower. There are also many sunflower seeds in the middle of the flower, and birds can eat from it. The book was simple, and I enjoyed it. This would be good book, to encourage students to grow their own sunflower seeds and learn about sunflower seeds. ( )

Genre: Realistic Fiction

Critiques: Although this book leads students through the growth of a sunflower, it is not an informational text, but a realistic text. It is a realistic text because the setting, characters, and events are all believable. The setting is a garden that any reader can relate to seeing before, the character is the girl planting the sunflower, and the event of the sunflower growing is an accurate representation of how sunflowers grow and develop.
This book has a background setting because the time and place does not effect the plot of the story. Although the girl is dressed in modern clothes, it is not relevant or important to the message of the story. The illustrator did a great job at showing a consistent setting though, which helped to understand the flow of the story better.
