    1. From seed to flower to hummingbird and butterfly to pollinator, this book is a great starter for all young naturalists and gardeners.

    2. This interactive picture book about how nature turns seeds into flowers is perfect for reading aloud to groups or individuals. The simple text and appealing pictures leave plenty of space for reader involvement as they reinforce a child’s understanding of nature while also providing room for wonder.

    3. This interactive story doesn't cover any new territory, but it is done very very well. The rhymes are simple, the actions are mimic-able and the illustrations have a colorful texture that breathe with the ample white space.

    4. This book is perfect. I love that it's short enough for any age group while also be interactive and engaging for kids who are reading better than others.

    5. "Plant the Tiny Seed" by Christie Matheson is an interactive story that allows movement and imagination on each page. The book teaches the basics about planting seeds and helping them grow into plants. Children are encouraged to clap for sun, tap the clouds for rain, and more as they turn each page, they are shown new and important elements of nature. The art was bright with color but rarely took up much of the page allowing the child to focus on a specific picture. It incorporates various eleme [...]

    6. I love this book! This is the perfect spring book ! It includes information about gardening ! Love this author!

    7. Herve Tullet does interactive books best. This is probably a good book to read with a child in your lap.

    8. The author of Tap the Magic Tree and Touch the Brightest Star returns with another interactive picture book that is a companion to the first two. The child first plants the seeds by pressing them into the ground. They wiggle their fingers to water them. Then comes sunshine and rain. A hungry snail has to be hurried on its way. And all the while the plants are growing and growing. Then come the flowers, bright zinnias of purple, orange and red. The flowers fade and soon there are new seeds to be [...]

    9. A great interactive picture book that encourages young children to touch objects on the page and perform hand movements (ex: clapping, wiggling their fingers) to help plants grow. This would make a good participatory book for a garden-themed storytime. It would be easy to adapt some of the movements for a group (ex: "Press [the seed] down and count to three" could become "Count to three while I press the seed down"). And the text is simple enough to keep a large crowd's attention from wandering. [...]

    10. This book is a great way to introduce young children to gardening. Through simple interactive and rhyming text, a child can help plant the seed, water it and, and even pretend to snip the flower. It follows the plant throughout the life cycle so it's a great one to use with any STEM activity or lesson about gardening. (No pun intended) Instructions are given in the back on how to grow your own zinnias and if you read them all the way through, you'll see that there is yet another opportunity for [...]

    11. This was a cute book that works to make the interactive process of reading a bit more interactive, in a "Press Here" sort of way. It would make for a great read aloud, and a good discussion to address understandings and misconceptions. You could ask, after the "clap to bring out the sun again", if that is indeed what makes the sun come outbut I am not completely sure the age for the book and the age for the question is a great match-upbut then again, why not. Curiosity and knowledge knows no age [...]

    12. This is a nice book to share with a child one on one. The illustrations are uncluttered with nice colors and small details, such as the little ladybug moving around on each spread of pages. There is an interactive element along the lines of Push Here by Herve Tullet. The end of the book has instructions to help you grow your own zinnias. Overall, just a really nice book to share.

    13. Outstanding book to share with pre-school and early elementary age children. Explains how plants grow in a very hands on way. Children are asked to clap, pat, wiggle and look - using their senses to help the magic of plant growth happen. What a happy book to share with little readers. The last page offers a great science lesson about growing plants.

    14. In the same vein as Tap the Magic Tree, an interactive book which breaks the fourth wall, asking readers to push the seed into the dirt, gently, rub the leaves, blow the seeds around the page. I liked the addition of the plant life cycle in this book, and the art is colorful and lively for little readers. If you like meta-fiction, this is a good addition.

    15. A short and sweet story about the life cycle of a seed which grows up to be a flower, with interactive activities on each page.This book could be used for a unit on plants.It could be used for a unit on life cycles.It could be used for a unit on farming.

    16. I think I will use this for my "Watch it Grow" gardening program in the summer! This interactive book reminds me of books like Tullet's Press Here. Kids can plant seeds and watch them grow into beautiful flowers.

    17. I like the illustrations and the interactive story. I would have given it 3 stars but I was very confused on the second page. It said to count to four but there were only three seeds. I think it will be confusing to children reading the book.

    18. Awesome! What a wonderful way to get children excited about plants, gardening, and all things summer. I would love to see this used with a group, but in order for the children to really experience the full color and all the actions in the book the group would have to be small.

    19. Much like Tap the Magic Tree, this book encourages physical participation on the part of the reader while explaining through pictures how flowers grow and multiply. Simple illustrations and text help to engage the readers in the actions and the subtle changes from page to page.

    20. Very simple text, but kids will enjoy the interactive aspect of this book, helping to "grow" the "magic seeds."

    21. In the vein of "press here" an adorable snappy tale about growing a garden. I can't wait to use it in a story time!

    22. This book has great potential for library storytimes, classrooms and simply reading to your own kids. There are so many craft activities that tie into the story making it really fun for kids.

    23. Interactive, great read-along book, with actions for the child to do that bring the book to life (and make the flowers grow!)

    24. The librarian recommended this to my daughter and she loved it. She wanted to give it six stars but I told her it only goes up to five.

    25. I'm a gardener myself so any book that can encourage children to plant seeds and watch them grow is a winner for me. Plus I liked how interactive the book was.
