Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathy Leggett
Large or small, all seeds grow into amazing plants. This beautiful book has colorful close-up illustrations that depict seeds in a natural state. The floating seeds of a dandelion, the bright green seeds of a peapod, and the crunchy seeds inside a sunflower all deliver an effective message about the importance of seeds. This is a nice big book that is just right for small hands and curious minds. Seeds is written with early readers in mind; it has a carefully controlled vocabulary with short repetitive sentences. The text corresponds to national science standards making Seeds an ideal choice for a first informational text. It contains all the components of a nonfiction text: a table of contents, glossary, titles, highlighted vocabulary, labeled diagrams, and an index. In addition, Internet references send readers to with a book ID number to help them locate safe Internet sites related to the book topic. Seeds is just one of the books in this early reader series; other titles highlight different parts of the plant: fruits, stems, leaves, and roots. Each book in this series focuses on one plant part yet culminates in a way that ensures that the reader understands that each plant part is vital and that they must all work together to enable a plant to grow and thrive.
