This book is a good reference point for studying plant life and how they grow. The illustrations are large and the text is easy to understand in lower grade levels. The first picture shows how many varieties of seeds there are and proceeds to explain that each seed will grow into the same kind of plant that made them. It explains how plants pollinate and spread seeds in various ways - wind, birds, seeds falling, rivers, animals, people, etc. It then explains how the plant grows in the seed and under the optimal conditions, then lists out the various growing stages and what occurs during each one. This would be great to connect to a plant experiment (which the book provides) and the kids could draw and label a picture of their flowers that grew! ( )

This book can be used as a guided reading book for average 3rd graders. It is perfect for working on vocabulary terms about the plant life cycle as well. I would use this for guided reading to see how the children are reading aloud and how they are pronouncing certain words. ( )

For Sue and Don Collins
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.
