Children's Books about Flowers & Gardening
Ms. Frizzle's class is growing a beautiful garden. But, Phoebe's plot is empty. Her flowers are back at her old school! So, the class climbs aboard the Magic School Bus. And, of course, the kids don't only go back to Phoebe's school, but they go inside one of Phoebe's flowers!
Carried from its flower home by the autumn wind, a tiny seed travels around the world. Its journey is perilous, and the reader learns the fate of fellow seeds: they can fall into the ocean, be burned by the sun, or be eaten by birds.
There are many types of flowers found all over the world, and all of them are different from each other. This book discusses different types of flowers in terms of where they grow, how they blossom, and other characteristics. Beautiful color photographs provide examples of many kinds of flowers.
From beautiful flowers to towering trees, all plants need air, soil, water, and sunlight to grow. Through informative text and hands-on activities, readers will learn how a plant grows from a tiny seed to a strong plant and why flowers rely on insects to help them survive.
With colorful illustrations, interesting sunflower facts, and a glossary, this book tracks the life cycle of a sunflower from a seed in the earth to a fully grown plant that drops its seeds when autumn arrives.
