Overview

Flowers, trees, fruits—plants are all around us, but where do they come from?
 
With simple language and bright illustrations, non-fiction master Gail Gibbons introduces young readers to the processes of pollination, seed formation, and germination.  Important vocabulary is reinforced with accessible explanation and colorful, clear diagrams showing the parts of plants, the wide variety of seeds, and how they grow. 
 
The book includes instructions for a seed-growing project, and a page of interesting facts about plants, seeds, and flowers.   A nonfiction classic, and a perfect companion for early science lessons and curious young gardeners.

This book gives a great introduction to the life cycle of a plant, and how they reproduce and pollinate. I think at times the wording is a little odd, and the pictures are sometimes hard to see.

This non fiction book would be a great way to show the life of a seed to a plant. Using this book in a science lesson would be a way to incorporate reading into another subject.

Gibbons, G., (1991). From seed to plant. New York: Holiday House.A colorfully illustrated book about how seeds grow into plants. The information is presented clearly with labeled drawings of plant flowers and the scientific names of the flower parts with brief definitions. The book also has an easy to understand explanation of the process of how seeds are formed and grow into plants. The facts are accurate and age appropriate for grades K-3. There is also a step by step "From Seed to Plant," project in the back of the book. Also included are some quick facts about plants on the last page.

Good science content in the text and pictures. Provides a plethora of information about plants that could be covered in different lessons. Only issue is that there is so much information and that some of the content may be too advanced for lower grades like K-2 that may need to be skipped to not cause too much confusion.
