Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Come along with Worm, Ladybug, and Snail for a first look at the plant cycle. Spring adds water and warmth, encouraging a seed to wake up. Roots push down and shoots push up, forming a seedling. The stem thickens and leaves appear. Buds appear and begin to unfold, turning into beautiful flowers. As flowers die, gardeners collect seeds and store them for the next season. Along the way, plants supply food and shelter to garden creatures and often reseed themselves. The plant used as an illustration throughout is the sunflower. Soft watercolors and smiling insect escorts give this book a warm and comfortable feeling that children will enjoy. The thirty-two page title includes an index, book and website references, a page of fun facts, and a glossary. The web reference is www.facthound.com—a "safe, fun way to find" related Internet sites. Other books in this series investigate colors, seasons, the forces of motion, the water cycle, a tree's life cycle, a butterfly's life cycle, a chicken's life cycle, and a frog's life cycle. 2005 (orig. 1998), Picture Window Books, Ages 3 to 6.
