    This book would be good to use for a unit regarding the plant cycle and how they grow. As well as understanding the variety of plants and the variety of conditions that are needed to grow. This book also gives good clear information. This would also be a good interactive look at the anatomy of a plant, and how they spread their seed and grow. This book would be good to help look at different processes that happen in nature like photosynthesis for example.

    The illustrations in this book are amazing! I think this book does an excellent job of presenting an informational book in a way that draws students in. Some key vocabulary mentioned in the book include photosynthesis, shoot, germinate, and dormant. This book would be a great support for teaching on the lifecycles of plants which could be paired with the CC #4 system and system models.

    This book is all about seeds and how important they are for life on esrth. The book starts by going over all the different things seeds are: sleepy, secretive, fruitful etc.. In doing this, it intices the reader because of course seeds don't really sleep, so it is intriguing to the reader to see what the seed actually does. It then goes over how a seed grows and all the things that it need, and then it's journey to becoming a plant.

    This is a great informational book all about seeds and the process of moving from seed to plant. Each page has a different adjective of what a seed is. It then goes into more depth talking about why a seed is "sleepy", "adventurous" etc. The illustrations are great and the book names many different types of seeds and plants. It would be a great book before beginning a unit on plants.

    This is a book all about seeds. It describes the live cycle a seed makes and all the different characteristics of a seed. This book is an informational book. It has little descriptions such as, "Seeds come in many sizes." The whole book gives you information on seeds.
