How a Seed Grows

How a Seed Grows” by Helene J. Jordan a Let’s Read-and-Find-Out Science Level 1 Book

“Day after day the roots and root hairs push down into the soil. Day after day the bean seeds are pushed up. The soil is pushed aside. Watch your seeds. Soon you will see pale shoots push through the soil. A shoot is the beginning of a green plant. A shoot grows toward the sun.”

Showing step-by-step instructions on how to grow bean sprouts in egg shells, this picture book helps children investigate and observe the different stages of growth until the sprouts are large enough to transplant into the ground.

True to its Level 1 status, this is just the right book for young preschoolers or kindergartners.
