Then these books might be of interest to you!
I was in the plants and seeds non-fiction section of the library the other day and found these three books that intrigued me. If you are in your growing season still or heading into it these might be good ones to check out for your little ones or your classroom.
Seeds Travel, Elaine Pascoe
Real photographs show kids all about how seeds grow, what they need to grow and how they might travel to get the things that they need. The pictures of the animals are great. There is not too much information for little ones but enough that it is a great learning book!
Seed to Sunflower, Camilla de la Bedoyere
Reading this book cover to cover may be a bit much for most preschoolers but the detailed pictures and photographs can be used to help show young children different phases and processes that plants go through. A parent or teacher could break the book up and use different pages along with other activities to further the learning.
A Seed Is Sleepy, Dianna Hutts Aston and Sylvia Long
A non-fiction seed book that is poetic! Can you believe it? This one has lots of different reading levels to involve many readers and learners. For little ones you can read the biggest text and then expand on that simply in your own words by just talking about what is in the picture. For older kids reading the whole text will teach them a ton about plants and seeds. This book shows pictures of seeds from all over the world and in all kinds of climates.
Read any good seed or plant books lately from the non-fiction section?
The Nitty Gritty!
I could see these books being paired with -
- making art out of seeds
- an outdoor seed hunt
- planting seeds
- hartvesting seeds
- dissecting fruits/vegetables to find seeds
- and much more!
What seed activities do you have posts about? Leave a comment I would love to read them!
