Have I mentioned how much I love nonfiction read-alouds? I do, I do. This is a lovely new one that I discovered, with beautifully exact art by Sylvia Long. Large cursive text on each spread gives one statement about a seed "A seed is naked" for example. A few smaller paragraphs on the pages expand on the sentence, explaining how a seed travels, germinates, and what a seed is in simple language children preschool through 3rd grade will appreciate. Ruth Heller's The Reason for a Flower remains my favorite, but if, like me, you received the one that had been library bound with the pages out of order or you need additional resources on this topic, this lovely new book may be just the thing.
