I love this book as a read-aloud for older toddlers and preschoolers. It does an excellent job of teaching about growth of flowers from seed to plant to seed. Because of its interactive nature, it is perfect for reading to one or two young children, maybe three, because each child will want to participate in the actions on each page as the seed is planted, sun shines, etc.

This is a fun, interactive, book that children will enjoy as they observe the changes from seed to flower and make these changes happen (e.g. "Wiggle your fingers to add some water.")

Love these books by Matheson! They are magical and keep my little one (3 yrs) interested. After we read it, she asked to read it again immediately. Great one to read in the spring.

Plant the Tiny Seed is an interactive and magical picture book. It is sure to inspire young and older gardeners to plant zinnia seeds.

Lovely, simple interactive picture books for toddlers. Includes movement, counting, and life science (botany for the toddler set!). I will definitely be recommending this to our library's patrons (and using it in our toddler storytime).

This book is a great one to soothe and interact with a wiggly toddler, and really interest them in the way you can interact with books! Clear, bright illustrations and fun prompts keep the story (and your kiddo's fingers) moving.
