Prolific Melissa Stewart has another title out from Sterling Children’s Books: How Does a Seed Sprout?: And Other Questions About Plants (Good Question!), illustrated by Carol Schwartz.
Stewart mentions on her web page that publishers sometimes hesitate to publish books about plants, but most of the kids I know are fascinated with gardening and plants. This title follows the popular question-and-answer format that works so well for reluctant readers who like to skim and read the sections they find most appealing. It covers both basic questions and more complex ones.
The book is filled with a mix of lively watercolor illustrations by Carol Schwartz and high-quality color photographs. It is an awesome reference that would be perfect for unit on plants or to accompany a school garden project.
