Reviews - What do customers think about How a Seed Grows (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 1)?
We read this all the time Mar 11, 2010
We've gotten this book out at least a dozen times from the library, so I finally just bought a copy.
We live in Phoenix, so we plant our gardens 3 times a year. Everybody gets their own garden with their own seeds. My youngest makes sure we all have a windchime in our garden, as well.
And we always go through this book the week we plant -- even though my kids know the steps, the book makes it so interesting for them to follow along. The illustrations are really clear. For homeschoolers, this makes a nice tie-in for journaling -- you could even do measuring and charting -- and of course, what you grow, you can enjoy! We love this one and the "Magic School Bus" planting seeds books.
The illustrations and text are not babyish -- this book is great.
Bring your egg carton and learn! Sep 15, 2009
My daughter does like this book quite a bit. I was looking for a book we could just read at nighttime vs a book that included a science project of growing bean seeds.
She did learn from this book and does request it even without our bean seeds, so it was worth it.
Description is wrong. Is a Level 1 book for preschoolers Jul 8, 2009
Just received the book and am returning it. The book is clearly marked as a Stage 1 book "for preschoolers and kindergarteners." For ages 3 to 6.
this site's description says it is for grades 1 to 3, ages 4 to 8.
Terrific May 2, 2009
WE planted a vegetable garden and this was a great complement to doing the gardening and explaining how thing grow.
Wonderful little book Aug 31, 2008
My four year old grandson loves this book. We have been growing plants from seed on his windowsill and can't wait to try the experiment in this book.
