Children's Literature - Dianne Ochiltree
Whether it's planting a garden in the backyard or sowing a seed in a plastic cup placed on a classroom windowsill, watching a seed grow into a plant is a fascinating, and educational, childhood activity. This fact-filled softcover book starts with the seed and goes on to explain how all parts of a plant work together to help it grow and thrive. The life cycle of a plant is explained, including the role of "friendly helpers" such as bees, who carry pollen from flower to flower. Scientific concepts are explained in simple, kid-friendly language. The books uses full-color photos of flowers, plants, roots and seeds in close-up to make these ideas clearer to young readers. The book includes a "words to know" glossary, a note for adults wishing to do a simple plant experiment with youngsters, and a resource guide to books and websites for those wishing to learn more about plants. A great addition for classroom or library collections! Reviewer: Dianne Ochiltree
