Great Book For Children

I'm a gardener. When I purchased this, I expected a detailed book about seeds and plants. However, this is more of a children's book with very large photos and very little wording. Thankfully, I have young children. I will just put this on their bookshelf.

My English Language Learners Loved This Book

Clear and attractive. I used this book to teach the process, but it struck me that it has other potential uses. This book may be useful in combination with Johnny Appleseed and A Packet of Seeds. Although this picture book is considered young juvenile, it could be used with higher levels, and worked well with some of my older English language learner students. The book ends with a "From seed to plant" project planting beans, which may be appropriate for integrating science and math curricular concepts. The book simplifies a hard to understand process and may help prompt some experiments about growing plants under different conditions. The class could talk about the kinds of crops grown during a particular historical time period and US location. When discussing pioneer history, for example, the students could plant sweet potatoes, which sprout easily in water, to talk about food availability during that historical period. The book may work well with other books--such as the cooking books--when teaching about food and farming.

Another great Gail Gibbons book

Gail Gibbons has the best books for kids. I can see why educators use this books in the classroom. The concepts are broken down into easily understandable parts; great for little kids!

Super Duper Plant Book

Great for primary introduction to plants and a must have nonfiction book for teachers ~ very informational.

Perfect for teaching about seeds.

This is an excellent book for younger students (K-3) about seeds and plants. I am using it as part of my summer school reading/writing program. First, I read the book to the students and we planted little radish seeds (they grow quickly) in see-through plastic cups. Later, the students read the book out loud to one another and we discussed the seed to plant concept. They also kept a journal to record their observations of their seeds with illustrations about every other day. This book presents a great opportunity to combine reading, writing and science.

Superb, simple explanation of plant life.

This book's big, colorful illustrations and simple language do a superb job of explaining subjects such as plant reproduction, seed dispersal, pollen transference, and seed germination. Although intended for a younger audience, I read this book aloud to my fourth grade students to quickly build their background knowledge.
