This is a great book to use if you are teaching about seeds. The pictures are actual photos of seeds. There are eighteen seeds the author writes about in this book. The author writes about pumpkin seeds, fruit seeds, milkweed seeds, and many more. It has brillant colors, and a great, clear photo of each seed. I would recommend this book for K-1.

An approach at understanding the reality and nature of human behavior
Seeds, by Georges Kassabgi, is one man¿s exploration of the reality and nature of human behavior. Like the great philosophers, Kassabgi, enjoys the stimulation of a good debate. I was reminded of reading about the Symposiums of Ancient Greece where the main entertainment was thinking, debating, and the discussion of ideas. While I think looking back at where we come from can be helpful in guiding us to where we are going. I suppose I am usually like the man that said, ¿To take action is far more interesting, not to mention fun, than to philosophize about love, ethics, war, or survival¿with limited knowledge, in all cases. I am always at peace when I am repairing something, in or around the house, or taking my sailboat out across the lake.¿ However, this book has successfully made me think. Perhaps I have always been to willing to accept the opinions of others to easily. If I correctly understand Mr. Kassabgi, he feels that the farther back we go the more we will understand of nature and human behavior. I found the cartoons and diagrams particularly helpful as they made a complex issue much easier to understand. Included in Seeds is poetry and a short story. Georges Kassabgi is an extremely clever author searching for an intellectual conversation. Reviewed by Debra Gaynor for ReviewYourBook.com 10/07Was this review helpful?
