A seed grows, Hardback Book

A seed grows Hardback



"A seed falls,And settles into the ground,And the Sun shines,And the rain comes down,And the seed grows..."To understand how a seed becomes a sunflower, you have to peek beneath the soil and wait patiently as winding roots grow, a stalk inches out of the earth, and new seeds emerge among blooming petals.

With evocative and lively illustrations, A Seed Grows offers a close-up view of each step of this process and the ways in which flowers and seeds depend on other creatures, with a striking fold-out spread of a full-grown sunflower and additional material at the back of the book explaining the science of plant life cycles.

The final quiz and suggested activities are a fun way to re-inforce what has been learnt.
