Read It: Bean and Plant

by Christine Back and Barrie Watts

Are you getting a garden ready right now?  Even if you aren't, this is a fantastic book for showing kids what's going on under the dirt with plants that produce our food.  The pictures are excellent quality and very close up, so you can see exactly what's happening.  
The book can be read by a beginning reader if they just read the top line of each page.  If you want to learn more about what's going on in the picture, you can read the smaller print.
The end of the book has 6 pictures for your little one to put in a sequenced order:  first the seed, then the root grows...
I highly recommend this book.  I like it so much I'm going to go ahead and recommend the book "Tadpole and Frog" by the same authors, without even reading it.  I'm sure they will not disappoint.

We have been growing beans in our window sill for the past couple of weeks....I am sure that the girls would love to see what is going on under the soil!
