Seeds hide plants, plants hide flowers, flowers hide fruit, and fruit hides... seeds! Delightfully playful text invites children to guess the “secret” of each life cycle stage (the seed, plant, flower, or the fruit to come).
Uncomplicated explanations about the seed, plant, flower, and fruit stages are illustrated with lovely botanical paintings that show a group of representative plants, featuring four familiar plants (pea, oak, rose, tomato). The same four plants are explored in detail, each with isolated life cycle drawings and facts.
Very well-organized and recommended by Montessori workshop presenter Priscilla Spears, Ph.D. 38 pages. Ages 3 and up.
