In my opinion, I believe that this was a good informational book. I especially liked the illustrations in this book. The illustrator really made sure that every step of the process of a seed turning into a plant was well illustrated but still easy to understand. For example, the illustrator would draw a picture of what the plant looks like while it’s still in the seed. In addition, she would also illustrate what a seed looks like while it is beginning to sprout underground. I think it really explained the process very well visually. I also liked that the author explained how seeds can turn into all different kinds of plants. In the end of the book, there is a big, colorful illustration of fruits and vegetables that all come from seeds. It was interesting to see how the author would bring the all of the information presented in the book together in a fun way. After reading this book, I believe that the big idea is to inform the reader on how food and flowers are grown. ( )

This book describes how plants make seeds and how a seed transforms into a plant. It does a good job explaining the seed and plant process. The illustrations and designs really help the reader grasp and understand the concepts.

First words
Most plants make seeds.
Animals help scatter seeds, too. They hide acorns and nuts in the ground. Some seeds have hooks that stick to the fur of animals or people's clothes.
A seed contains the beginning of a new plant.
