Did you know that every tree you see was once so small that it could fit in your pocket? How does a tiny acorn grow into an enormous oak tree? With beautiful, realistic watercolor illustrations, this book follows the process of how a little seed grows into a plant or tree through the at-home seed project of two young students planting beans. Readers up to 7 can do the same activity or simply observe how the seed grows in the story.
"With charming illustrations and clear text, this simple introduction leads young readers through a series of steps that result in bean plants as well as a basic understanding of how seeds work. Children are encouraged to follow each aspect of the botanical process, from sowing bean seeds, to the growth of tiny root hairs, to transplanting the plant in the garden. Realistic and inviting watercolors show only procedures that are possible for youngsters to follow with minimal involvement from adults."—School Library Journal
