My seven-year-old son is always planting and transplanting trees, flowers and other plants, and he loves this book which shows him how a plant goes thru changes throughout the seasons.

I use this book when I'm doing Jack and the Beanstalk to teach about the cycle of a seed. The kids love it and so do I!!!!

I loved this book. It was one of the first books I read as a child, and it is amazing. I use it in my volunteer work at elementary schools, and all the kids really get into the story. Great pictures.

This is a good book because it has good pictures. The illustrator used alot of color and interesting art techniques. Plus this book has a lot of information to teach you about seeds and plants. But I'm still scared of flowers with bees on them.
