Recommended Reading: Botany

Seeds Go, Seeds Grow shows familiar seeds, their intriguing methods of travel, and their development from pollen through germination to ultimately seedling. Mark Weakland’s eye-popping photos are certain to captivate young readers.

Through a cross section of soil, readers see ten newly planted seeds and their development -- or their demise!  An ant, a cat, and someone’s errant tennis ball are among the culprits that leave only one remaining seed to produce a flower and many more seeds! In Ten Seeds Ruth Brown’s lively drawings lead to a celebration of that surviving plant’s successful production of a new supply of seeds.
