Explore how seeds travel from the plants they form on to the places they'll grow!
Spinning like a shiny green helicopter, a maple seed floats on the wind. Where will it land? Seeds splash away in raindrops, slide across the snow, and hitch rides on birds and animals—and even people's clothing.
For anyone who's ever blown the fluff of a dandelion and wondered where it went, this is the perfect introduction to plant life cycles and seed dispersals for young readers. The simple, poetic text is paired with detailed illustrations and close-ups of seeds, pods, and other parts of plants.
A brief illustrated glossary and a note on why seeds travel so far is included. Perfect for fans of Gail Gibbons' From Seed to Plant.
