Zoom in on some of the most common seeds and learn a few facts along the way. From dandelions and berries, to coconuts and wheat, this is a springboard for conversations about how seeds form, grow, and travel, but cannot stand on its own for those facts. It's the pictures that make this text work. The photography is excellent, allowing readers to see both the bigger picture of each plant, and extreme close-ups of the individual seeds. These show the colors, textures, and sometimes even the fast motions of the seeds. Teachers will wish that Robbins had placed more emphasis on general seed facts, but overall this is a good beginning and a great resource in its photographs.
