Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ramirose Attebury Wendt
Reading about how a seed grows into a plant is a good way to understand the process of seed development, but watching the process in person can be even more enlightening. This Level 1 member of the "Aprende y descubre la ciencia" series encourages young readers to actively discover the various stages that a seed goes through on its way to becoming a plant by offering instructions for planting and caring for beans. The book suggests using twelve cracked half egg shells as planters. Students can gently poke holes in the bottoms of the shells with a pencil and then place the shells in an empty egg carton container. A few days after the children plant the beans, they can dig their seed out of the first shell to see its progress. After several more days, they can dig the seed out of the second shell to reveal even more development. Repeating this process will allow children to see the various changes a seed goes through before sprouting through the dirt. The book offers simple illustrations to accompany each phase of the activity. The final page of the book offers an additional activity to demonstrate how differences in light, water, and temperature can affect plant growth. This book would make an excellent part of a preschool or kindergarten science activity.
