“This book was about growing a seed into a plant. My daughter absolutely loved this book and will read it over and over. The illustrations are beautiful and the information is good. I have been encouraging her to read more on her own (she’s 7 years old) so it helps to find books that she loves and will read over and over. I especially like the fact that it’s educational.”
