Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
Young readers are introduced to a wide variety of seeds in this delightful, rhyming picture book. Bright watercolor illustrations form the backdrop for the fun riddles posed for readers to solve. The opposing illustration shows the plant or tree that has grown from the seed. A seed will "pop from their pod like a miniature sneeze" as is the case of the violet, or "like fishhooks or Velcro, they stick where they're stuck" like the burdock or "roll on the ground, blown by winds that are strong, scattering seeds as they tumble along" like the tumbleweed. Detailed illustrations show each seed close-up, as well as the plant from which it comes. There are fun activities at the end for eager botanists, such as gathering seeds on socks pulled over shoes and planting them to see what grows, inventing their own seed, and making seed people (a Chia pet knock-off). Attractive in design and informative in content, teachers and parents will find this a worthy introduction to seeds and their methods of travel.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-An interactive guessing game about seeds and the plants they produce. Through rhyming text and clues, Roemer introduces nine different types. Lyrical language and descriptions ("angel-winged" maple seeds, "hitchhiking" burdock burrs, and "wispy-soft" dandelion tufts) paired with lush watercolor paintings perfectly express the natural transformations that take place. The repetitive question "What kind of seed is this?" is answered on the opposite page in bold font. This riddling book will be fun to share one-on-one or in a group setting. Follow-up crafts and activities are appended. A beneficial resource for lessons in nature, science, or even language, this is a fun and useful addition for most collections.-Jennifer Cogan, Bucks County Free Library, Doylestown, PA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
