Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Anita Barnes Lowen
Learn all about seeds big and small. The largest seed in the world weighs as much as a small child; some of the smallest are as tiny as the tip of a sharp pencil. Discover what is inside a seed and find out how seeds sprout. Learn about the many ways seeds travel. Wind, people's socks, animal fur and water can all carry seeds far away to new places. From the "I Like Plants!" series written for beginning readers, the book's large print, straightforward text and color photographs on every page will keep the attention of the young scientists. The beginning pages include a table of contents, glossary and an illustration of the parts of a plant. At the end of the book, readers will find a directions for a simple experiment (Does soaking a seed in water make it sprout faster?) as well as a list of books and websites to learn more. Although written for beginning readers, preschool and kindergarten teachers would find this book appropriate to share with nonreaders. This book along with its five companion titles would make an excellent addition to elementary classrooms and school libraries. Reviewer: Anita Barnes Lowen
