How does a tiny acorn grow into an enormous oak tree? This classic Level 1 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out picture book shows how little seeds become the plants and trees that surround us.

Now rebranded with a new cover look, this book includes a find out more activity section with a simple experiment encouraging kids to discover what a seed needs to grow. Both text and artwork were expert-reviewed for accuracy.

This is a Level 1 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out, which means the book explores introductory concepts perfect for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.

What this book is NOT, to be clear, is a good read-aloud. It's tedious if used that way.What it *is* is a good, step-by-step instruction of a basic science project for little ones. If you use it that way, reading every step as you go through it and not before, it's wonderful. I find the reading age suggested on this book (3-6) to be a little young. Try 6-8 instead.

If you're into gardening, then this book will tell you what happens to your seeds when you plant them in the ground. Tons of facts and drawings to help you understand plants.

I purchased this book for my 3 year old after we planted seeds, it is great for teaching the concept of what a seed turns into. She loves it and re-reads it often.
