Uses observations of bean seeds planted in eggshells to demonstrate the growth of seeds into plants.
Gr 1-3-- Revised illustrations and format make this book, originally published in 1960, a valuable choice. 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 full-color watercolors show only procedures that are possible for youngsters to follow with minimal involvement from adults. The African-American girl, who is the main character, is definitely in charge; her white male friend performs only menial tasks. --Eva Elisabeth Von Ancken, Trinity Pawling School, NY
