Summary

Beautiful photography and lyrical text pair with comprehensive picture captions in award-winning author Melissa Stewart's story about the surprisingly diverse world of seeds. Learn all about the plant cycle, from how seeds grow, the fascinating ways they travel, and what it takes for a seed to become a plant.

From butterflies and honey bees to cockroaches and katydids, discover all you have ever wanted to know about these amazing animals. Discover which insects are the most common; which have the most painful sting; and which have awesome talents, like "escape artist" camouflage abilities. Learn about insect senses, insect predators, quirky facts about insect fossils, and which bugs are most closely related to our other animal friends. After this deep dive into the science of entomology, you'll "bee" an expert on bugs and will dazzle your family and friends with your newfound knowledge.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In a brightly photographed primer about how seeds travel, grow, and thrive as plants, Stewart (Feathers: Not Just for Flying) begins with a corn seed. A cross-section of ground shows the seed as it splits open, its roots push down, a shoot pokes out of the soil, and the corn plant sprouts leaves. Stewart presents other types of seeds, using playful verbs to describe the way they move away from their parent plants. Some seeds "fly" on the wind; others "tumble" across land or "spill," like those from the poppy plant. Cottonwood seeds "float" on water, and some even "creep," like that of the blue cornflower: "On humid days, the bristles swell. Thanks to these tiny movements, the seed slowly creeps across the ground." A section discusses how some seeds travel inside the bodies of animals and are dispersed through digestion: "A few days later, the deer poops out the seeds far away from the parent plant." Stewart offers an inviting and visually compelling introduction to an essential concept. Ages 6-9. (Feb.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
