Back of Book:
When Jody’s grandfather comes to visit, he brings along a packet of seeds for them to plant. Through spring, summer, and fall, Jody watches her plants sprout, flower, and grow lots of beans. Soon, as Jody’s parents await a new baby, Grandpa and Jody are picking the beans – and waiting for next spring.
This is one of my most favorite stories to read when discussing seeds and plants. We are getting ready to plant our own seeds in my class so I will be sharing this book before we plant them. I love that this story breaks down the growing process. The index in the back of the book allows readers to look for specific areas of planting. The illustrations are soft and capture Jody’s excitement as she watches the plants grow. A perfect read aloud for classrooms or home.
